A Tall Home Temple Unit With Jaali Doors 

This is a tall temple unit that comes with an interesting design. The temple is placed at the corner of the kitchen. The idol shelf is the same as the kitchen shelf, and the unit encloses two base cabinets of the kitchen. To separate the mandir from the kitchen, we have used two tall jaali doors with a wooden frame. This encloses the temple unit and creates a modular home temple design utilising the kitchen countertop and cabinets. The background of the mandir unit has a jaali decoration that accentuates the traditional appeal.

Beneath the marble slab, there is a wooden cabinet with open and closed shelves to store the mandir essentials. The mandir comes with two big jaali wooden doors with intricate traditional decoration. The embellished wooden doors create a gorgeous effect that highlights your prayer space.
