Pictures of Traditional Rangoli Designs for Diwali and Lakshmi Puja

Rangoli patterns are an essential part of Lakshmi Puja during Diwali celebrations. These unique designs are known as ‘Kolam’ in Tamil Nadu. Today, colorful Rangolis are more preferred. Rangoli designs are drawn mainly to invite Goddess Lakshmi into the house. The two feet drawn along with the Rangoli designs symbolizes Godddess Lakshmi.

Six petaled lotuses, pointed starts, hexagons are some of the patterns widely drawn during Diwali. In some areas, especially in North India, different types of colors are widely used in the Rangoli patterns. In South India, generally the designs are kept white in color. At night, Diwali diyas are lit on the Rangoli designs.
