This Mini temple (Kavaad) is hand made by the Suthars of Bassi, Chittor, in Rajasthan. This size  Kavaad (mini temple) is 18cm high, 9cmwide and 8cm deep  when folded in.   Folded out it measure 30cm wide. If the larger temples are out of stock (with much patience!) you can order it larger.This tradition is unfortunately just about dead In times gone by wandering storytellers told the stories depicted in each image to the village children. These storytellers are no longer to be found but there are still a few old men making these beautifull temples.  But will their children's children carry on this beautiful tradition?  These temples measure 18cm high  You can order them bigger but it will take some patience for these temples are original and not just to be bought in a superbazar.
