Hinduism - What Is A Chauri?

 



 

A Chauri is used to brush flies and insects away by whisking. 


The name comes from the term "chamara," which refers to a yak's long tail hairs, from which it was originally manufactured. 


The chauri was a regal symbol in ancient India, and it may be seen in religious figures like the Didarganj Yakshi's sculptures.
