Ottu pathrangal (bronze utensils)

Aavani palaka-Used as a seat by the thirumeni during poojas

Lakshmi vilakku: An auspicious lamp that brings blessings of Lakshmi bhagawathy the goddess of wealth. Most of these utensils are of my ancestors. In ancient days most of the families in Kerala had a lot of utensils made of bronze. Mannar is a small town in Kerala which meets most of the bronze demands of Kerala.
