Along with the rose , lotus is the most sought after flowers for our rangoli designs.  Hridaya kamalam for example is a lotus design drawn only in the Pooja room.  Lotus is considered to represent Goddess Lakshmi .  This simple 5 dot kolam I created for our daily purpose rangoli that we need for our vasal kolangal.
