We are getting many queries asking – Which is the best place to keep my aranmula kannadi, in pooja room? in showcase? in the table in my office room? or any other specific places in home?
Our answer is as you wish, you can place your aranmula kannadi anywhere you like.
because, there are no specific place where you need to keep aranmula kannadi. wherever you put, it believes that it can attract positive energy thus good luck and prosperity where its kept. the only point is – keep your aranmula kannadi open and exposed to air. NEVER KEEP ARANMULA KANNADI CLOSED IN A BOX.
some people keep it in pooja room, while doing so please make sure that the kannadi part is not touching any kind of oil or corrosive liquids, if you pour any oil by mistake, immediately wipe out with a cotton and keep the surface clean and dry. same is applicable while you keep it anywhere else.
There are some directions where you can keep the aranmula kannadi to fix your vasthu problems, that we can discuss in another post.
As you know, Aranmula kannadi is made up with pure brass. so exposing it in to the atmosphere for sometime will make an oxide layer on top of the metal surface and it will loose its shiny surface after a few months. so cleaning aranmula kannadi regularly is the best way to keep them looks like fresh and shiny.
How to polish aranmula kannadi frame?
You can use any metal polish ( specially made for brass) for cleaning the aranmula kannadi surface. in Indian market two famous products are there named – Dhara and brasso. we recommend dhara since it gives more result.
you can apply a thin layer of metal polish and then polish with mild cotton clothes. as you polish more, it will be more shiny.
Can I apply the metal polish in mirror part?
yes, you can use the polish in the mirror part also. BUT IN A VERY MILD QUANTITY. also while polishing make sure that you are using very soft cotton material and make sure that there are no stones or hard materials between the mirror and the cloth. if anything like that will result scratches on the mirror surface.
Can i use the cleaning kit comes with part of mirror packet?
yes, you can use. the default cleaning kit contains red oxide powder, and which is less efficient than the metal polish we discussed above. in earlier days the metal polish was not available in the market and thats why we used to pack the cleaning kit with mirror. so now mirrors comes without the cleaning kit as well.

Valkannadi’s are the most traditional model of aranmula kannadi’s. Valkannadi is famous for its feminine touch and the old royal families had valkannadi’s in their collection.
Valkannadi means – the kannadi with a hand ( ‘Pidi’ in Malayalam). usually valkannadis are holding in hand. so its limitation was – it should kept somewhere lying in ground, or lean against a wall or something like that.
But now, every valkannadi’s comes with a hook on backside – so that you can hang it on your wall. Let it be in your visiting room, drawing room to grab the attention of your visitors.
Aranmula kannadi comes in various prices. it starts from INR1500/- to 12,50,000/- or even more. well, how the prices of aranmula kannadi is determined, and what are the factors in pricing? – Everyone may be interested to know it right?
Basically the price of aranmula kannadi is determined by the size of the mirror part ( reflective part). the size measuring in diameter. if we say 2.5 inch kannadi, it means the reflective part ( mirror part) of aranmula kannadi is in that diameter.
Also, the size and design of the frame also influence in the pricing. the size and weight of the frame along with the design and art work in the aranmula kannadi frame decides the price. more big frame with more works costs more.
Even a very small aranmula kannadi will take 3-4 days to finish its basic shape, and additional days needs to polish and adding the art works. so the total labour cost involved in making the aranmula kannadi determines the price. Remember – Aranmula kanandi is 100% handmade. no machines are using for the making. so its pure manual effort to make every aranmula kanandi from start to end. so this is very unique and every aranmula kannadi is different from one other.
