Vaalkannadi is the most famous version of these legendary handheld mirrors,
with a sleek and compact look that is regularly used as a gift for celebrations
across all communities in God’s Own Country. Their origins lie in the quaint
temple town of Arnamula in the heart of Pathanamthitta district in Kerala. The
mobility and ease of use afforded by this masterpiece add to its appeal, along
with a very sleek and decorative design that is easy on the eyes. It is the
classic model of the Arnamula Kannadi, which can be used handheld or hung,
always a beloved pride of Kerala.
