Planter vases popularly known as Gangalams are enormous metal vessels usually made from brass, bronze or copper. These alluring vessels native to tropical regions in southern India like Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh were used to store water back in the day, as people didn’t have access to water motors or overhead storage tanks and were dependent solely on monsoon for acquiring water. Currently they are being used as planters to adorn homes. They are available in various sizes and have an assortment of different shaped handles. Using them as planter vases, or to simply decorate your house, they will definitely offer a certain flair to their surroundings.
