About Rangoli >> Origin

Its origin is traced back many centuries. It’s believed that When a King’s young son died, the king and the entire kingdom fell in sorrow.  The King, devotee of Lord Brahma (God who created the world) prayed the God to give back his son’s breath. Brahma asked the King to portrait his son’s picture. The king brought his son's picture into his mind firstly and he painted his son's picture on the ground.


The Brahma got happy. He gave life to his son then. That was the first painting or Rangoli or Kolam on the earth.  Rangoli has variety of names according to the Indian region. It’s called 'Kolam' in Taminadu and Kerala. In Bengali 'Alpana'. Muggu in Andhra Pradesh.
