Representing the unique cultural traditions of Jaisalmer, the Kathputli dance reflects the artistic imagination of the organisers of the show, who creatively choreograph a dance drama of puppets for the entertainment of the audience. String puppets or Kathputli dance in Rajasthan is an old tradition, which features a well-known ballad or a lyrical story to narrate the events of historic times. These stories or tales of romance and chivalry are told with movements of string puppets. During historic times the art was practiced by the Bhat society. After them, this art was also performed by influential families in the state and became well-known in the region not only for entertainment, but also to provide moral and social education to the society.
