Dear All,

This year Golu we have kept traditionally 5 steps and we use pattu saree with double border. Along with the dolls of God's, small dolls of animals and in the last step, we have kept Chettiar doll along with groceries. The temple set is made out of waste things available in the house expect for the
2 coconut trees. The main diety is Ganapathy and in the side "Ashtalakshmi" and in the other side Navagraham made out of toy clay and Sivalingam is also kept. In the backside, well and pond is also made. In the front, flower shop and slipper stand is also made. We have used pool tiles for
pathway and the yoga mat is used for floor. Hope everybody likes this...

Beautiful Golu arrangement and decorations. Looks very bright. Beautiful ezhai kolam surrounding the golu set up.

The temple set looks too cute. I loved it. You have mentioned that u have kept a small flower stall and slipper stand in the front of the temple. Can we have a closer view of that?
All the best and keep it up.
