This traditional lamp is one of the exotic things available in Kerala. Every auspicious occasion in the state sees the lighting of the Nilavilakku and it is important in almost every official and unofficial function. It is believed that the lamp gets rid of all the dark energy that revolves around the person and their households. They are available in all sizes and are made out of either bronze or bell metal.
This is a handcrafted jewelry box that is quite popular since the old ages. Wood from trees like Teak was used to create these colored boxes and they were later ornamented with brass. There are many families in the state which still have the relics from their ancestors and while there are many cheaper versions available today, the relics go for quite a high price at private auctions.
While spices are available all over the country, there is no place like Kerala which was traditionally and historically popular for its spices such as black pepper, cardamom, cloves, and dried ginger. There are packets available for all these spices individually while some vendors have packets that have all of them mixed in the right ratios.
