Karlakattai is a seasoned medicinal wood that is turned into a specific shape and size then further treated with medicinal oils. There is a lot of science behind the use of traditional wood, the shape and weight of the Karlakattai. It is a tool that is used to shape and look after the Temple, that is YOU. The closest English word for a Karlakattai is a wooden club.
