    Hello folks,

    ME and my husband created this mandapam for our house in Seattle. My husband did all the wood work and I did the outer decorations.

    This picture is from our krishna Jayanthi celebrations this year.

    Let me know how is it.

    Thanks.

    Hi,
    Looks very divine.
    But why you covered the silver lamp? Will it also become black as it goes in India?
    Thanks for sharing.

    Hi Viji,

    My parents gifted me these Silver lamps this summer when I visited India. I haven't removed the cover yet, as it is waiting for an auspicious event. It might turn black, but I do have a silver shine powder to get back the shine.

    Ramya,

    We did not buy it. My husband bought the wood from homedepot and made it from scratch.

    Chitra,

    I will take pictures this weekend of the mandapam by itself and post it for you.

    Thanks everyone for the compliments.

    Hi prithvikrishna,
    This one looks beautiful.Is this seperate room in house ?

    Please be cautious with placing dhoop sticks in carpets.
    You may need to put aluminium foil when you light lamps to prevent the area getting darkened.

    Thanks
    Mangai

    Wow! Looks very nice.

    I have a small pooja area where I have kept my mandap. I wanted to check if you ladies keep your silver vessels outside on a daily basis. From the above picture I can see that she has wrapped the lamps with plastic sheet.

    Let me know how you all maintain the silver vessels and how to prevent it from becoming black. Is there any liquid available to polish it?

    Thanks
