Welcome to Shivans Traditional Golu 2022

Highlights this Year

Navratri golu is always close to my heart as I take enormous efforts
to go the extra mile in making it look unique every year alongside
maintaining a traditional effect. I believe Golu is all about
presenting bommais in a virtually appealing manner with utmost
love and devotion.
My main golu padi is handmade from scratch not store bought.
Moreover, the other golu padis are built using cardboard boxes,
books and planks. One prominent thing to note is that most of my
golu bommais are carefully handpicked, unique as well as realistic.
The backdrop for this year’s golu is a lotus themed one wherein
you may find few bommais on a lotus pedestal / base to go in line
with this theme.
Navratri is one of the most auspicious festivals dedicated to
Goddess Durga. Inspired by these beautiful nine colours and nine
nights around this festival, my Golu showcases nine themes
associated with nine gods.
The concepts / themes associated with nine Gods are as under:
God / Goddess Bommais
1) Durga/Lakshmi/saraswathi – Ashtalakshmis &
devis
2) Rama (Ramarin kathaikal ) – Ramyana scenes
3) Krishna (Goloka Vrindavan) – Krishna leelai
4) Perumal darshanam – Perumal divya
