Pooja Room Designs Kerala Style

It is in the Pooja room that all of us pray, meditate and feel connected to God. It’s the sacred centre of the room. It is therefore mandatory that the designing of the same is done meticulously and in a manner that provides or serves to the ambience of the place.

In this article, you can find ideas on designing the Pooja room with elements borrowed from the culture of “God’s Own Country”

The people of Kerala emphasize on education and ensure that the younger generation is aware about the religious teachings that are rooted in the culture of the state. As it is known that Kerala is covered in lush greenery and has notable fauna, many elements in the culture are inspired from nature. Some notable elements incorporated in the culture of Kerala are elephants, banana leaves, atthapookalam ( which is basically ‘rangoli’ made out of flowers)  and many more.

A few ideas are displayed here, where the architecture and/or designing of the Pooja room is inspired from the state of Kerala.

As seen in this specific Pooja room, the roof ,which is the most distinctive visual of Kerala architecture, is long, steep and stooping.

Not just the architecture of the room, but even the stand for placing the idols can be designed with the distinctive roof style of Kerala.

Lamps, known colloquially as “vellak” are an integral part in any of the traditional forms/events in Kerala. These can be included as shown in various positions in the pooja room. The various kinds of vellaks also include hanging ones.

Various hanging pieces showcasing the traditional  art forms of  Kerala can also be hung in the room.
There are various designs that can be applied to the doors of the pooja room.

Since it is the first thing one would see while entering the Pooja space, the door must be beautifully designed and maintained.

Paintings on the walls can also be inspired from the flora, fauna or even the culture of the state.

Others accessories that can be worked upon using creative inspirations and ideas include chandeliers, the rugs/carpets used inside the room, etc.

Evidently, a Pooja room inspired from God’s own country wouldn’t be a bad idea after all, given the rich heritage and culture of the state along with it being closely knit with mother nature!
