Rangoli holds a special significance in every festival in India. It is considered auspicious to make rangoli for the Pooja place. Sometimes people make rangoli out of only haldi (turmeric powder) & rice flour to keep it natural. Diwali being an extensive festival for people all over the country and parts of the world, Diwali rangolis are certainly a little more elaborate and extensive than most Indian festivals. Rangoli is usually made at the place of the main entrance to please the Lord Kuber & Goddess Lakshmi to enter the house and bless the home for prosperity, wealth & good health. So people take special care and make extensive designs which are beautiful every year. Some opt for natural rangoli with flowers while others opt for a quick no fuss water based rangoli with flower petals and floating candles.
Everyone seems to choose unique designs to make rangoli each year. Here I thought to share some amazing rangoli design suggestions from my saved images gallery to you all so that any one of you who is out of ideas can quickly try these designs! 🙂
