Indian hand fans

The origins of Indian hand fans can be traced back to the ancient times, when they were used in temples to fan deities, in the royal courts and in households. There is a mention of fans in the Indian Epic poem - Mahabharat (a major Sanskrit epics of ancient India). Temple fans vary in size from tiny to large fans needing the full strength of a person to move them. The villages and towns have varieties of traditional hand fans. In each place, the fans are made of different materials and have intricate designs.
