Hridaya Kamalam

Hridaya kamalam is a lotus obtained by fitting 16 petals. This kolam is drawn with a single line that goes through all the dots to form a representation of lotus flower and Hindu people believe that drawing this kolam in one go without removing the hand out is religiously beneficial.

Here the kolam is based on dots drawn in 8 lines radiating from the centre towards 8 directions with 45 degrees between the adjacent ones. The pattern shown below uses an arrangement of dots with 5 dots in an arm.
