<p>The auspicious event is observed in a particular manner in the city of Dindigul. Kolu dolls are revered by the local populace. These dolls are marketed and are mostly constructed of wood or clay. These dolls have been created by the artists for many years. Doll sales in Dindigul are now at an all-time high as Navratri approaches.</p>
<p>The dolls of Meenakshi Thirukalyanam, Dasavatharam, and Ashtalakshmi Karthikai are available for purchase in the Dindigul Gandhigrama shop. In addition, the stores also sell dolls of Mahatma Gandhi and a few other notable figures. Similar to how Meenakshi Sundareswarar, Chakrathathalwar, Dakshina Murthy, Annapurani, Shiva Family, Varagi Amman, Karpaka Ganesha, and Rajaganapati idols are constructed, so are the idols of other deities. While the bundle of toys costs between Rs 1,000 and Rs 4,000, the dolls cost between Rs 150 and Rs 400 each.</p>
<p>During an interview with News 18, one of the salespeople, Manikandan, stated: “This year, more Kolu toys have been placed up for sale than previous year. To worship them according to their beliefs, people purchase them alone or in sets. The collection of toys is also purchased in large quantities by those who adore these dolls. The company is now doing well. It will soar in price.</p>
<p>Other locations in Tamil Nadu where the dolls are marketed besides Dindigul are the villages of Velachery in Madurai and Virudhunagar districts. According to sources, the Virudhunagar Sarvodaya Sangam is reportedly offering a 10% discount on every toy this year, and this sale will go till Saraswati Puja.</p>
