Aranmula Kanandi – Why it is so special?

Aranmula mirrors are handmade metal-alloy mirrors, made in Aranmula, a village in the state of Kerala, India. Unlike the normal ‘silvered’ glass mirrors, being a metal-alloy mirror, it is a front surface reflection mirror, which eliminates secondary reflections and aberrations typical of back surface mirrors.The myth about the origin and secret of its composition makes it a truly fascinating craft. As traditional as the mirror-making technology is, the artisans’ belief that the composition of the metal mirror is divine and some undisclosed metals alloyed with silver, bronze, copper and tin are responsible for the distortion-free images.

Aranmula Kannadi Writeup

This is the typical write up of the aranmula kanandi.

Aranmula kannadi is a handmade metal-alloy mirror, made in Aranmula, a village in the state of Kerala, India. Unlike the normal ‘silvered’ glass mirrors, being a metal-alloy mirror, it is a front surface reflection mirror, which eliminates secondary reflections, refractions and aberrations typical of back surface mirrors. The exact metals used in the alloy is maintained as a family secret. An Aranmula mirror takes many days to make, and then is polished laboriously by hand for several days to achieve its reflective surface. Aranmula Mirror considered one among the eight auspicious items or “Ashtamangalyam” that make up a Kerala bride’s trousseau.

These unique metal mirrors are the result of Kerala’s rich cultural and metallurgical traditions, and have great historical and cultural value and are even considered to bring good luck. Produced by a single extended family in Aranmula, the origins of the Aranmula kannadi are linked with the Aranmula Parthasarathy Temple. Legend has it that eight families of experts in temple arts and crafts were brought by the royal chief to Aranmula from Tirunelveli district to work in the Parthasarathy temple centuries ago on the mirrors.

The British Museum in London has a 45 centimeter tall Aranmula metal mirror in its collection. The mirrors have received a Geographical Indication (GI) tag in 2004-05.


An Aranmula Mirror is auspicious and is the pride and prestige of Kerala. You can place the Aranmula Mirror in your Worship room or Hall showcase. If you are placing it where there may be smoke, like the Pooja room, then please enclose in plastic or glass to ensure reflection of the mirror.


Please allow 2 weeks to make the Mirror of your specifications, in case it is not readily available. Aranmula Mirror is packed in a hard colour box which itself looks gift wrapped.


All Aranmula Mirrors come with a small cloth pouch with Red Oxide powder. If you touch the mirror with your finger, or it comes in contact with heat, dust or moisture, use the cloth pouch to rub the mirror surface in vertical direction, till is regains shine.
