About Bommai Kolu:

During  Navaratri, in certain parts of South India, the tradition keeping the ‘Bommai kolu’ is practiced. Idols of the Gods and Goddesses from the Hindu mythology are kept on odd numbered steps. Children are encouraged to take the lead here, and this in turn helps them better understand mythology and the many narratives. The order in which the Bommai or the dolls are kept also has its own significance.

Navaratri and Bommai Kolu also serves as a platform for art and culture. Those visiting to offer their prayers at the Bommai Kolu are encouraged to sing, dance or play music before the deities. Thus making worship through music and art an integral part of  Navaratri.
