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.
