The Goddess of wisdom, Saraswati is clad in a white or shiuli flower dyed yellow or basanti colored saree. Rangoli or Indian pattern or decoration with ground rice and flowers forms an integral part of the Saraswati Pooja. The design of a fish is incorporated in the rangoli as it is considered to be auspicious. A low tool constructed out of wood and covered with a yellow cloth is used to place the idol facing towards the east direction.

It is the custom to cover the face of the idol until the priest starts to chant the mantras when the pooja begins. Eastern pot is used to hold green coconut wrapped in a red checked cloth made of cotton, called “gamocha.” Palash is a very important flower used for the worship of Goddess Saraswati, apart from marigold and rose.
