Reminiscent of the symmetrical stone disc resting atop most Indian temples, the Temple Lights draw inspiration from the crown of the edifice. Said to resemble a bloomed lotus, a ripe fruit or even the sun surrounded by its infinite rays, the feature is both ubiquitous and timeless.While the pair of holders resemble the crown, the flames of the lit tealights stand in for the delicate kalash or finial that stands spectacularly on the stone disc. Like the unsurpassable feeling of joy experienced by a tired pilgrim upon spotting the spire and the fluttering temple flag, these lamps are sure to add comfort and warmth to any space.

The wooden objects are textured, finished with great smoothness, whittled and carved to utmost finesse.

The alluring stone carvings of Odisha mirror a glorious past and a rich heritage. Evolved and perfected through centuries by the deft hands of artisans who descend from the builders of ancient temple - they are not only a timeless reflection of an eminent tradition but also frozen stories in stone.
