Construction of the Thulasi Maadam-Part 1

An idea that has been in our head and hearts for all these years took shape (using insulation) over the last few weeks.

The Thulasi plant aka Holy Basil (Ocimum Tenuiflorum) is commonplace in most south Indian households, and typically housed in a concrete structure.(This is how ones in India typically look like-click here)

The next and the trickiest step is to encase this in cement.


  1. Did you ever get to complete this ? I am looking to start a DIY project too! Please share your experience. Thanks

  2. I havent had a chance to get to this ..yet. Hopefully it should get done in 2013 :0
