Making of God Idols in Tamil Nadu | Art & Crafts | GI Tagged Handcrafts | Tamil Nadu Tourism

Bronze Hindu God Idols are mainly made in South India, especially in Tamil Nadu. Thanjavur, in Tamil Nadu, is famous for making Hindu Gods. The chief centres that make the idols in bronze are Kumbakonam, Natchiarkoil, and Swami Malai. All these places are located in Thanjavur District in Tamil Nadu.

The Swamimalai bronze icons were made in Tamil Nadu over 1100 years ago for the main purpose of worship. These icons received a boost during the Chola Dynasty and, therefore, have a historical meaning attached to them. These bronze icons also served the purpose of reminding people of sacred truths, spiritual stories, and the importance of meditation. Every single feature of the icon, from the body parts to the small decorations, had cultural significance and a connection to the myths and legends of India. These icons have also been made to depict the heroes of the Indian epics of the Ramayana and Mahabharata.

Tamil Nadu is a place with several distinctive features of tourism where stories never end…
