‘Aranmula Kannadi’ is a unique mirror made by cooling a mixture of molten tin & copper.
This rare metal mirror, the only one of its kind in the world, holds a pride of place among Kerala`s contribution to the world of art. For centuries, it has attracted scores of admirers with its awe-inspiring blend of beauty and craftsmanship. However, this enchanting piece of work remains more of an enigma to the outside world. This is so because only a few Vishwakarma families in Aranmula really know the art of making then and have kept it a closely guarded secret. The aesthetic sense with which the Kannadi has been created speaks eloquently of creative genius.
Making of Aranmula Kannadi

In an ordinary mirror, there is a mercury coating that reflects the light and thus presents the image of the object.There is no mercury coating on the Aranmula Metal Mirror. When you touch a piece of paper on the surface of an ordinary mirror, there appears a gap between the object and image, whereas, in the Aranmula Metal Mirror, there is a point of touching of object & image and exists no gap between the images.
Aranmula Kannadi received a geographical indication tag in 2004-2005. Aranmula Kannadi is reflected with complete clarity without any refraction, in as much as the image falls just on top of the surface of the metal mirror, unlike the glass mirror where the image falls on the mercury coated surface inside the glass.
The making of this mirror needs intuition, expertise, precision, a lot of dedication and to be done in a sacred atmosphere. It is believed that if a person brings this mirror home, Goddess Parvathy blesses him and will be liberated from all evil forces.
