Door Torans and Wall Hangings:

Hinduism is a rich culture which comprises of diverse traditions and rituals. These rituals play a significant role and have deep meaning. The interesting part about the rituals and traditions in Hinduism is that they are backed by scientific reasoning. In India we often see that the frame of the main door of a house or entrance of a venue is often decorated by tying colourful flower garlands, these garlands are known as ‘Torans’ or ‘Bandarwars’. The word toran is derived from Sanskrit word ‘Torana’ meaning pass. According to the ancient Buddhist architecture, the toran signifies a sacred gateway. The toran is a decorative door hanging that finds its mention in the Puranas.

Significance of Torans

In the ancient times, torans were hung on the main entrance of the home and temples to attract and appease divine energies, especially Goddess Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth. During ancient times the torans where made by stringing together fresh marigold flowers and mango leaves. The mango leaves were believed to absorb the polluted air outside the house and circulate fresh air and oxygen inside the house. Also, as per colour therapy, green colour has a calming effect on the senses and is said to ward off negative energies like stress and anxiety. Similarly, the marigold flowers orange colour symbolizes purity and wards off evil eyes. The scent of the flower keeps insects away.
