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:
- Kaṅkaṇa - bangle
- Keyura - bracelet
The keyura may be made of silver or gold and worn on the arm above the elbow. It is of different shapes.
