Kolam No.173


This Kolam is called "Aishwarya Kolam".


8 - 3 interlaced dots (Idukku Pulli) Kolam - Start with 8 dots in the center, next 7 interlaced dots and again 8 interlaced dots. Then - put interlaced dots at both ends and stop at 3 as shown above.


Join dots as shown above.


Finish the Kolam by joining the remaining dots as above. This is the Aishwarya Kolam. Keeping this Kolam in the center, we can draw more small loops or curves or a big circle around the Kolam.


We can draw this kolam with wet rice flour paste. We can also fill with colour powders.

what is the significance of aishwarya kolam?

Kamala said...

Some designs like lotus, star etc are denoting God / Goddess and these types of kolams are drawn before God and Puja rooms. "aishwarya kolam" is drawn in the puja room with a belief that it will bring wealth to the family. There are more puja kolams called Hirudaya kamalam, navagragha kolam etc.

Hi kamala,

I am Learning receipes and kolams from your site.It is very much useful to me.kindly continue the same.i have a doubt. Can we put puja kolams in street?.Is it ok or we should put only in puja shelf?I saw some people are putting aishwarya kolam in street.Is it correct?. I wish to know before i put in front of my house.Plz clarify....

Kamala said...

It is better to avoid putting Puja kolams on the street, because people may step on the kolam. If it is inside the compound wall or where people will not walk on the place, we can put it.

Anonymous said...

Thank You for Clarification.Exactly!since it was put outside the compound wall in the walkable way,People are stamping that kolam without noticing it.thatsy i got doubt that it may be sin. Now,im clear.ill put only in puja room. Thanks again...

Ananthi said...

Kamala Madam,
The way u teach the kolam to draw is very nice.I wanted to learn the Aishwarya kolam since so many years.I read about ur site in Mangaiyarmalar.Since I am staying in a flat ,I learned so many small kolams with Aishwarya kolam.
Thank u very much.
Ananthi.

Namaskaram.

Kolam plays significant part in 'Brahman community'. In our house , during 'Vilakku pujai' the Sastrigal used to draw 'Shri Chakram' kolam, upon which Shri Devi is invoked in Villakku.

Normaly, ladies of those days in Brahmin community donot draw 'pulli vaitha kolam' On Tuesdays and Fridays my mother used to draw 'Kanya kolam' (straight lines crossing each other and having lotus flower drawing in the four corners), Tamarai poo kolam and 'Homa (or Oma ) Thaazi'. Homa taazi is simple two triangles crossing each other. Probably this is drawn for performing 'homam'. Though we heartily appreciate the beauty of the dotted kolams, if anybody clarifies about the straight line kolams, we can know the significance behind them.

How do you draw the kolams on computer? Is there any special software that you use? I want to draw them on my computer.

Poornima said...

Hi Kamala,

Traditionally,in my family no one draws Kolam.But,i became interested in drawing kolams as a teenager and learnt few designs,from my Tam-brahm friend:)One of my faves was this 'Aishwarya kolam'.But,once i went to hostel for my studies and later got married and was busy with kids,i forgot most of the designs.
Now,again since a few years i have started drawing kolams.I look around our neighbourhood and remember the designs i used to put.But,i just could not find 'Aishwarya kolam' even though i tried googling.Today,i stumbled upon your site,and the 1st thing i see is this!!!What a blessing!!Thank you so much.be assured i will be visiting often and leaving comments.Thank You,from the bottom of my heart:))I am marking this page as my fave...

If u don't mind telling me how u do it on compter itslef I will be very happy and I can send all my kolams to u.
