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.

Unfolded: 77 cm
Weight: 1100 g

Will be well-packaged for shipment.
The photos are very faithful.
