During Pongal, an important aspect of the celebrations and festivities is the making of Kolams in front of the main door of the house, the courtyard and/or the altar. Kolam is a form of Rangoli, a popular folk art made in homes during auspicious occasions across India. It is also known as Alpona in West Bengal. These colourful patterns and designs are popularly made in the southern states of India during Pongal. Made with varied materials — from special rangoli powder to ground rice powder to flowers, people across ages and communities sometimes spend hours trying to create intricate patterns in front of their house doors. But everyone can do with some inspiration when it comes to deciding on the design of the kolam, which is why we've brought these lovely designs for reference. Check them out here.
