Tamil New Year Kolam Designs



Kolams or Rangoli are an integral part of any Tamil festival. Each festival has a special kolam dedicated to it. And for New Year, or Varsha Pirappu, the most preferred kolam is the Vilakku kolam. ‘Vilaku’ means lamp and in the Kolam design lamps of various shapes play a prominent part.

Here are few pictures of simple Tamil New Year kolam designs. The designs are hand drawn and then scanned so the quality is poor and the photos are primarily meant to give an idea to draw different kolams.
