India is a country known for its rich culture and tradition. Praying to idols has been a part of Indian culture for centuries ever since the time of our ancient scriptures. It’s no surprise that buying God idols is part of people’s beliefs and rituals in this country. Many people express their gratitude to God through idol worship in good times while others find respite and draw strength from the same in difficult times. Worshipping idols is a way of expressing our love and faith towards God. In bigger societies, communities and temples, purchasing the idol can be quite a daunting task for occasions and festivals.


Given the importance and sensitivity around religion in our country, there are a few things one should keep in mind while buying religious idols.

    1. Make sure the God idols are the right ones
    2. There are plenty of idols being made that are not an authentic representation of the Gods. Buying religious idols from a well-known brand such as HomeTown ensures that the smallest details are taken care of.

      Make sure that the idol you purchase has the right religious symbols and specifications to avoid offending anyone.

    3. The material used for the God Idols
    4. Buying an idol made out of sub-standard materials is being penny wise pound foolish. You must ensure that the idol is made out of premium quality materials. At HomeTown, idols made out of materials such as polyresin, brass, ceramic and metal are available.

      When choosing an idol, make sure the material used is visually appealing as well and goes well with your home décor. If you are a believer in Vaastu, an approval check from a Vaastu consultant would surely help to ensure the idol bring the right energy and positivity into your home and is placed correctly.

    5. Other things to keep in mind
    6. Every religion and God come with their own set of legends and superstitions.

      When buying a Ganesh idol, the position of the trunk is an important consideration while the position of the hands in a Buddha statue is also a vital factor.

      Depending on which God idol you are going for, do a little bit of research and talk to some religious leaders or experts in your community to get all the relevant information you need before you purchase God idols for the pooja room.
