Frequently Asked Questions

Can we put rangoli at night?

Yes. In fact, in many households, people make their rangolis at the entrance of their house at night and add diyas to it for an enhanced effect. This ensures that the artist doesn’t have to wake up super early, and the rangoli is at the entrance at the earliest hours of the morning to greet guests and passersby.

What is the difference between rangoli and mandana?

Mandana is also a type of rangoli popular in Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh. It means decoration or ornamentation. It is an ancient form of Indian tribal art found on the walls or floors of these villages. Mandanas are usually made of chalk paste on red clay walls or floors and are meant to last for longer, preferably up to a year.

Is rangoli religious?

Rangolis are part of religious practices in Hinduism as they are considered auspicious. However, they are not limited to it. Anyone who wants a beautiful, temporary piece of art to decorate their homes may make a rangoli regardless of religious affiliation.
