    The aal vilakku or banyan lamp is so called because its design is inspired by that of the banyan tree. The tiered branches and leaves of the ‘lamp-tree’ form myriad small oil holders – often an auspicious numbers such as 51,101,1001. Such lamps are usually large and reserved for ritual use in Hindu temples. Devotees donate oil or ghee for the many receptacles of the aal vilakku in return for special poojas or prayers conducted on their behalf at the temple, a phenomenon in keeping with the symbolism of the banyan in Hindu mythology as the¬†kalpavriksha or wish-fulfilling tree. In the context of its role within the temple, the many-branched banyan is likened to the shelter given by god to his devotees.
