However, almost every Indians love to have a mandir at their home. Mandir in home brings with it spiritual energy and positive vibe in our home and life. We feel the mystic connection to the supreme power here. Get some ideas and design the House of God right in your home and feel blessed.
This is what a very traditional mandir of our grandmother’s house looked. The wooden carved doors fixed on the brightly coloured wall, garlanded images of deities, toran, diyas, bells… and then a traditional grandmother’s cabinet to keep the pooja essentials. The brightness of this mandir is pure and pious.
It is quite trendy and convenient in city homes where we can’t have a separate pooja room but still wish for a proper mandir in our home. Intricately carved wooden cabinet with marble interior and a bell hanging from above makes it look like a temple. It is artistically beautiful.
Necessity is the mother of all inventions! Necessity to have an elegant mandir in our home complete with all minute details of a temple has transformed this niche on the wall into a beautiful mandir. A platform to keep the deities, light shining from above, drawers to keep the space organized and the bells hanging on the doors; open the doors to feel blessed.
Separated from the rest of the space by a glass screen with beautiful motifs on it, it’s a beautiful mandir with silver bell, silver lamps, and a beautiful statue of God sitting on marble top. Sit and meditate to get connected with your inner self.
The bright curtains enhance the look of this simple and elegant temple made of wood. The ring of bells plays an important part in our pooja rituals. This temple has enough of it to fill your home with melodious sound of bells.
Indian temples are known for the intricate carvings done on stone walls. This mandir is a beautiful amalgamation of stone carving and modern texture on the wall. The elegance of this mandir is in its simplicity.
A lot can be conveyed by the colours, see it to believe it. The playful use of colours has converted a wall into a traditional, beautiful and serene mandir. The background colours are well complemented with the white marble statues of Lord Ganesha, one large and others of the same size. One cannot miss the ‘OM’ in the middle.
