Puppetry throughout the ages has held an important place in traditional entertainment. Like traditional theater, themes for puppet theater are mostly based on epics and legends. Puppets from different parts of the country have their own identity. Regional styles of painting and sculpture are reflected in them. Like the string puppets from Rajasthan are known as Kathputli, string puppets of Orissa are known as Kundhei, puppets from Tamil Nadu known as Bommalattam.
