Small rathas inside big ratha!

I had been to Palghat recently to take part in the annual 'Kalpathy theru' cart festival. My host requested me to put a theru-kolam at the entrance of their house. Since I had not practised proper & traditional theru-kolam I just combined a few small rathas to make a big one!

Without any second thought you have drawn a lovely ther kolam Jaya Maam. Experience matters a lot :). Paariyin thero, mullai kodi therikirathu (Is it King Paari's chariot, could see jasmine creeper)
And as Rani/Veni combination is missing today, Nice to see Sisters jodi Smile

Please can we have the complete dot count details, for the surrounding chariots around the dotted chiku one?

wow, nice one jayaji, the way you have instant recipies for food, here is the instant chariot combo design. Good thought.
dots: 13 X 9 and then reduce in steps to reach one? Hope i have counted the dots correctly Smile ...thanks for sharing.

Kutti ther kolam super. The dot count is little confusing. U have drawn the 5 thers seperately and then filled the gap with chikkukolam I think.The 'Ther vadam' looks natural.
