Domes play a very important part in places of worship. They represent and symbolize different aspects of the religion. Domes are found in Eastern Churches, Hindu Temples and Mosques. In Hindu Temples, the sikhara culminates with a kalasham or sacred brass receptacle (dome) at its peak. In Mosques, dome is often placed directly above the main prayer hall. Usually it consists of geometric patterns or Arabic calligraphy on the internal surface. In Eastern Churches, dome forms the roof and is placed on top of the cupola. It can either be in the shape of hemisphere, onion or conical. In Mosques and Eastern Churches, domes symbolize heaven.
Apart from worship places domes are also used in buildings, palaces, mausoleum, etc.
We manufacture interior, exterior, onion shaped, conical shaped, coffered and ornamental domes. We can also make carvings in the interior of the dome if needed.
