I had been to Palghat recently to take part in the annual 'Kalpathy theru' cart festival. My host requested me to put a theru-kolam at the entrance of their house. Since I had not practised proper & traditional theru-kolam I just combined a few small rathas to make a big one!
Just wanted to share this kolam was made during diwali. This is my first attempt of a ther kolam.
This kolam has dots but it should be counted and drawn carefully.
Hello All, This is a small Ther Kolam special for Krishna Jayanthi. Your views please....
Drawn on Ratha Sapthami this year. Ground floor of the apt building. Thank you all for your comments/opinions on my kolams. Very happy to read them
Kolam for car festival its a typical type of rangoli
Usually drawn on the Rathasapthami day, with Sun in the centre. Can be modified to use for any other diety too. (again scanned & colored)
Dots 21 X 21.
This one is a simple chariot kolam with some free hand drawings mixed. The pulli details are marked on side in red. "vaa" letter represents "varisai".
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.
