Kawad: portable wooden temple containing many panels that fold out on each side, to reveal a sanctuary in the centre.
A kawad is usually painted red with 10 doors.
The Kawadia Bhatt people were bards that went from village to village. Their wandering way of life made it difficult to have a permanent temple for worship. They created these 'sanctuary-cabinets'
Kavads are often in mango or sesame wood.
