Keyura

From Hindupedia, the Hindu Encyclopedia

By Swami Harshananda

Keyura literally means ‘bracelet’.

In iconographical works, gods and goddesses are often shown as bedecked richly with ornaments. Two such ornaments are:

  1. Kaṅkaṇa - bangle
  2. Keyura - bracelet

The keyura may be made of silver or gold and worn on the arm above the elbow. It is of different shapes.
