Expert Answer:

Craftsmen were very famous for their work in the ancient times. For example, the craft persons of Bidar made exquisite bronze, copper, silver and gold images. People who visited the temples brought these pieces of great craftsmanship. Later, the community of crafts persons became rich and played an important role in building and maintenance of temples. They gave grants for the construction of temples, building of inns for the pilgrims to stay and built reservoirs. Many rich weaving communities gave huge donations to the temples. The money was used by the temple authorities in building and maintaing the temples.
