Greetings !

This is Sujatha from Singapore. This year , our theme for the Golu is about Temples of the world . We have showcased temples and places of worship from various religions across the world. Our aim is to explain the existence of theism and temples from as early as 21st century BC and how each religion has its own way of celebrating the Superior being. We have tried to discuss the temple architectures especially in the North Indian and South Indian temples and have showcased a South Indian temple in detail with its Gopuram, Garbhagriha, subsidiary Shrines, Dhwajasthambham and Vaahanam, Mandapam with events , temple shops showing Pooja items, flowers, coconut , accessories etc, temple pond and other scenes usually found in a South Indian temple.

The models of the temples were handmade/ assembled using cardboard/foam board ,paper, puzzles and other accessories. All the components in the detailed model of the South Indian temple like the temple shops with its accessories, Shrines , Dhwajasthambam, Mandapam etc are handmade.

I have been keeping thematic Golu for more than a decade and the main inspiration for that are my children. Being away from India, I wanted them to stay connected to our roots and I think it’s the best way to tell them stories about our Hindu Mythology by actually creating those stories through beautiful dolls during this beautiful festival.

I thank you for giving me an opportunity to showcase our Golu here in this platform and wishing you all happy Festivities !
