Vishnu is the protector and preserver of the universe. In order to protect the universe and dharma, he descended on earth in ten different forms, or dashavatars. The purpose of such avatars is to completely destroy evil and restore dharma. During the Hindu festival of Navaratri, a traditional display of dolls or figurines depicting the ten incarnations of Lord Vishnu is known as a dasavataram Golu set.Here are some of the Features and Benefits:
• An integral part of the Golu setup is the Dasavatharam, the Purana story about the creation and end of the world and all the forms of Lord Vishnu in the process.
• Golu is a doll and figurine festival held in South India during Navaratri and Dussehra. It is a set of steps decorated with bommais (dolls) of all shapes and sizes to tell a story about a Hindu or secular cultural issue. Every Kolu needs a refreshing twist with beautiful handmade dolls.
