Different Names of Rangoli

Rangolis are mostly made on Hindu festivals like Diwali, Onam, Pongal, Sakranthi, and Ganesh Chaturthi. Though, it is most commonly made during Diwali. They’re normally made outside the main entrance’s threshold and inside pooja ghars.

Rangolis are not only made for decorating the house. It is believed that rangolis invite good luck and prosperity and keeps evil and negative energy away. Traditionally Rangoli was made using rice flour or powdered limestone. But now people create rangoli using different materials such as colored rice, dry flour, colored sand, and flower petals. 

You can make rangoli in any design. Traditional rangoli designs include peacocks, creepers, fishes, flowers, etc. But it is not compulsory to go with traditional designs. You can be creative and make any design or pattern.
