hariththarang

Known in different languages by a variety of names, Golu is perhaps one of India’s most unique regional festivals. Families across the south-Indian states celebrate ‘the toy festival’ by displaying various dolls and figurines on many tiers, usually in odd numbers.

The dolls, which depict Indian mythology, adorn south-Indian households over the nine nights of Navratri, and invite Kolu (literally Divine Presence in Tamil) of our goddesses Saraswati, Parvati, and Laxmi. Friends and family members go to each other’s houses to ‘see the golu’, whereupon they are received with prasad, kungummum (a holy powder), and perhaps a small bag of gifts.
Golu has for long had a connection with the agricultural community of India.
