•Golu is a doll and figurine festival held in South India during Navaratri and Dussehra. It is a set of steps decorated with bommais (dolls) of all shapes and sizes to tell a story about a Hindu or secular cultural issue.

• Every Kolu needs a refreshing twist with beautiful dolls. The Ramayana, Puranas, and Dashavataram are just a few examples of the Indian folktales that are celebrated by the Golu bommais arrangement. The evolution of life from animals to sages and seers is also shown in the Golu.

• Ranganathar, known as Lord Vishnu's incarnation, is revered in South India, particularly in Tamil Nadu. The renowned Sri Ranganathaswamy temple at Srirangam, Tamil Nadu, which is devoted to Lord Ranganatha, is where the word Ranganathar originates.

• Ranganathar dolls and other god dolls are frequently featured in these exhibits.

• The legend of Ranganathar goes back to a time when the area was ruled by a king by the name of Dharma Varma.

• The king wished to erect a lavish temple in Lord Vishnu's honour because he was a devotee of the deity. But he had to overcome many challenges, such as a lack of resources and qualified labour.

• One day, the king had a dream in which Lord Vishnu told him to find an idol of himself in the Cauvery River. The monarch followed the directions and discovered the Lord Vishnu idol resting on the coils of the Adisesha celestial snake.

• The idol was put in the temple the monarch had constructed, which became known as the Sri Ranganathaswamy temple. Ranganathar is revered as the temple's presiding god, making it one of the most significant and sacred pilgrimage destinations for Vaishnavites.

• Ranganathar dolls are made to look like the deity lounging on the coils of Adisesha and are frequently decked out in traditional clothing and jewellery for the Golu exhibition.

The dolls depict Lord Vishnu's divine presence and his function as the universe's guardian and preserver.

• Decorate your Kolu Padi with our unique collection of Golu dolls/golu bommai/dassara dolls for this Navarathri.

• An ideal present for festivals like Navaratri, Diwali, and housewarmings. During Navaratri, people visit each other's homes to see the Golu display and offer prayers.

• It is considered an auspicious time to seek blessings from the Divine and to celebrate the victory of good over evil.

• This set stands apart from the usual golu doll set because it is painted in vivid, rich colours with a different composition and definition.
