Heavy altar bell made of brass and wood.
Bells are used for invoking the Gods. The ringing of the bell produces what is regarded as an auspicious sound. There should be auspiciousness within and without, to gain the vision of the Lord who is all-auspiciousness.
An added significance of ringing the bell is that they help drown any in-auspicious or irrelevant noises and comments that might disturb or distract the worshippers in their devotional ardor (dedication), concentration and inner peace. It produces a harmonious and rich tonal sound when rung by hand while singing the Aarti or even chanting traditional Mantras for worship. Prayers of any kind on any occasion are incomplete without the joyous sounds and chanting of this fine Temple Bell.
