About Chariot kolam / Ther kolam :

Some of the well known temples in India initiate a procession with the devotees and the temple chariot also called the rath in the festival season.

Idols of gods are placed in large chariots or raths which are drawn by the pilgrims. The chariots are approximately 45 feet high and have six wheels. Each year, the rath yatra (procession) draws huge number of devotees from all over the country.

Click on the blue button located at the bottom of the dot grid.

Dear Lata,
Your ther kolam looks very good.
Could you share the instructions for your ther kolam?

Lata's picture

Thank you Ganga for the wishes and wish you a happy pongal too.
Bijumini, nice to know you think so!

Vani, I don't understand what you mean. Did you try clicking the blue square button seen at the bottom the the dot is supposed to draw all the strokes. If you think it "draws" it fast, just play it any number of times. Let me know if it doesn't animate.
