The origin of torans can be traced to Puranas (Hindu mythological work).
Torans or bandanwaars are used to decorate the main entrance of the home. The main idea behind decorating the homes is to please and attract the goddess of wealth Lakshmiji. So the decoration of the entrance of the place which is called dwaar is also important in this regard.
The beautiful door hangings that are also known as bandanwaars,thoranam, and torans have special significance as the decoration accessories.
