Tamil New Year is a lot more different than the usuale festival. Poompuhar brings out a festive range of handcrafted products that represent the fine craftsmanship of Tamil Nadu. Here are some distinctive products that will add a sparkle to the Tamil New Year.


Tamil New Year: Papier-Mache-Sitting-Thiruvalluvar

Tamil New Year

When calendars across the world show 2016, we in Tamil Nadu are ahead of times by 31 years.

To commemorate the birth anniversary of Thiruvalluvar, eminent Tamil poet and the author of the famed Thirukural, Tamil Nadu adopted the Thirvalluvar Aandu or calendar year.

What better way to begin the Tamil New Year than bring home this papier mache depiction of the saint-poet, Thiruvalluvar! The hand-crafted representation of the author is bound to usher in wisdom and peace to your new year.

Brass Uruli:


The New Year is marked with auspicious kolams or rice-flour designs on doorsteps. Get creative, and liven up your kolam with an uruli filled with flowers.

This exquisite brass uruli with its polished sheen will attract the best that the New Year has to bring. At Poompuhar, the uruli is available in different sizes and weights to suit your needs!

Brass Lamp:


Light up your home this Tamil New Year, with a bright new lamp from Poompuhar. The beautifully hand-crafted brass lamp has not one, but two layers each with provision for five wicks.

The brighter the better! The graceful Annam, mythological bird that can make out the good from the bad, guards over your house and keeps away the dark, both literally and figuratively.

Arathi holder:


A traditional puja is incomplete without an arathi, the holy fire with camphor. This unique arathi holder from Poompuhar has been designed just for the ritual puja.

Capacious enough to hold the camphor at a safe distance, and stable enough to stand on its own, this brass arathi holder will be the star of the New Year puja.



Ring in the New Year with these elegantly crafted brass set of bells, with a Ganesha engraving on three layers. While the Ganesha ushers in the good beginnings, the vibrant peal of the bells brings in the good vibrations to your home.

The clear timbre of these bells will be the perfect accompaniment to your New Year puja.
