Made in Muradabad through sand casting
This brass sculpture of chowki is meant for performing puja at home, or for simply decorating your home in Hindu way. Place your favorite idol on the chowki within your home temple. Artisans of Muradabad in north India have crafted this chowki sculpture using age-old sand casting technique. In Hinduism, puja is done on a variety of occasions, frequency and settings. It may include daily puja done in the home, to occasional temple ceremonies and annual festivals, to few lifetime events such as birth of a baby or awedding, or to begin a new venture. The two main areas where puja is performed are in the home and at temples to mark certain stages of life, events or some festivals such as Durga Puja and Lakshmi Puja. Puja is not mandatory; it may be a routine daily affair for some Hindus, periodic ritual for some, and infrequent for other Hindus. In some temples, various pujas may be performed daily at various times of the day; in other temples, it may be occasional.
