Kannadi Pallakku(glass palanquin) Kolam

This kolam was drawn on the day of Sapthasthanam. Sapthasthanam is a 10 day festival conducted at Thiruvaiyaaru(birth place of carnatic music) during April every year.  Thiruvaiyaaru is a town near Thanjavur. On that day of Sapthasthanam, principal dieties of seven temples in and around Thiruvaiyaaru are decorated in the glass pallakku(palanquins).  Hundreds of people witness the convergence of seven dieties of respective temples from seven places at Tiruvaiyaaru. 

Here is the kolam of kannadi pallakku :


  1. Ma'am I am blown away. I like how each one of your Kolams is so symmetric and pleasing to the eye. I have always loved to draw kolams at my grandma's place and then at our own sweet home. Thank you for the visual feast to my eyes! I hope to be able to learn from these samples.
