• The most significant component of the Navarathri Golu decorations is this pair of Wooden Marapachi dolls, which represent Sri Venkateshwara and Lakshmi, his bride.
• Rosewood was initially used to craft the Marapachis. This could resemble a male and female Deity, such as Ram Parivar or Ganesha, among others.
• It is also customary to worship the Marapachi, which has Deity-like characteristics.
• The paste of the marapachi is also administered to the forehead of young children when they are sick with a cold or fever by pressing it on the grinding stone.
• The parents of the newlyweds gave them Marapachi Bommai. Marapachi dolls are thought to have originated in Tirupati, Andhra Pradesh.
• Since these traditional dolls are said to bring luck, you may also utilize them as house decor.
• The dolls are usually dressed in traditional attire, with the female doll wearing a saree and the male doll wearing a dhoti. They are often adorned with jewelry and accessories, further enhancing their beauty.
• During Navaratri, the Marapachi Bommai(Golu doll) Set is displayed on the Golu steps, representing the divine energy of the feminine and the celebration of marriage and family.
• These dolls evoke a sense of nostalgia and tradition, reminding us of the cultural heritage and values they represent.
• By including the Marapachi Bommai Set(Golu doll) in your Golu display or gifting it to a newlywed couple, you honor the customs and traditions of South India and celebrate the beauty of love, unity, and prosperity.
