Idudiviranam (Iduthadi - Veeragranam)

The Idudiviranam is used as a mangala vadya (auspicious instrument) and accompanying percussion instrument during the ritualistic circumambulation of the temple after a melam and during the deeparadhana ritual.

A smaller version of Tabla, the Idudiviranam is used to create a divine mood. It is also called Kidupidi. A larger version called damanam (idamanam) is also used on the same occasions.
