Hi All, Namaskaaram. Our golu tradition is in the family for decades. I am a big fan of kolu season and we have been keeping kolu with theme since my childhood starting with
kids theme animal parks etc. gradually becoming more thematic as I grew. We always keep 5,7 or 11 step traditional kolu plus a theme based setup on traditional or modern themes. In the past years we have kept Srirangam temple, Palm Jumeirah islands, Auroville, Ulaga Tamil Maanadu pandhal, Paarkkadal kadayum vaibhavam and many other themes.
Our 2022 kolu is a 5 step traditional kolu + Different Kshetrams and gopuram styles featuring: Kalady(Guru Shankaracharya Janma bhoomi Kshetram), Guruvayoor Parasurama Kshetram, Padmanabha Kshetram - Tiruvananthapuram, Saiva aagama Kshetram - Chidambaram, Pundaleeka Panduranga Kshetram - Pandarpur, Purushottama Kshetram - Puri Jagannath, Ganapathy Kshetram - Uchi pillayar koil, Trichy, Sethu samudra Kshetram - Rameswaram, Bhooloka vaikuna Kshetram- Srirangam, Tiruvilayadal Kshetram - Madurai Meenakshi temple.
Meticulous effort has gone into creating these temples, gopurams, sannadhis using thermocol , craft items and paints..and hand made with devotion and prayers.
You are all virtually invited to our kolu through this channel/ competition. Seek your support and ideas.
