In Hindu tradition, Ashta dikpalas are the eight deities that guard the eight quarters of the world. The eight deities protect the eight cardinal directions with the help of elephants. The pictures are provided by IGNCA. The game of Ganjifa Cards was very popular in ancient India. The cards contain hand painted images of Ashta Dikpalas.
