Golu is the festival exhibit of dolls and figurines in South Asian nations throughout the season of Autumn, uniquely during the time of Navaratri of Hinduism. These displays are typically specialized for narrating a legend from a Hindu text or a secular cultural issue.
The Sapta Matrika is affiliated to Mother Shakti and Skanda, the warrior god. ‘Matrikas’ means mother and ‘Matris’ indicate the class of mothers. Thus Sapta-Matrikas means Seven Mothers. The Sapta- Matrikas are known as Brahmani (wife of Brahma), Maheshvari (wife of Shiva), Kaumari (wife of Kumara), Vaishnavi (wife of Vishnu), Varahi (wife of Varaha), Indrani (wife of Indra), and Chamunda, or Yami (wife of Yama).
