Very pretty and beautiful kolam with different lamp design. The outer border is also very cute. Lata, in kannada language we call those tall lamp as "DEEPA STAMBA". here stamba means kamba/gamba ( pole). You might have observed the tall poles in front of temples on which you find god hanuman or a lamp at the top. People generally do namaskar to that before entering the temple. That we call as "Garuda Gamba" or "Garuda Stamba". For info.

Cute rangoli inside! You could have tried the outer white decorative lines with wet rice flour to avoid smudges!
