Antique Bronze Temple Shrine Bell – Eb6 (1240Hz)

Size: 6 ¾ x 5 inches (17 x 12.5 cm) plus tongue & chain.  2 lb 13 oz (1.29 kilos)

 

This is a fabulous and heavy antique bronze bell or ghanta is of a type found hanging beside a shrine within a Buddhist or Hindu Temple.  It was sourced from an antique dealer in Kathmandu, Nepal. 

 

 

This bell has probably hung beside or over a shrine for hundreds of years, and been rung daily by countless worshipers.  Shrine bells are occasionally renewed as their rings wear thin, and sometimes a shrine might be destroyed or abandoned and their bells end up in an antique shop.

 

This ancient bronze bell is supplied as found with all its thick patina of grime and its life-story intact, and unusually it includes its ring and a length of the original hand-forged iron chain from which it was suspended.

 

Antique bronze shrine bells like this are few and far between, and are highly prized by religious practitioners, shaman, yogis, healers and sound therapists, as well as collectors.

   

When you buy, handle, and ring this antique temple bell you can be confident that it is a genuine and revered holy instrument that has played an important part in countless sacred rituals and ceremonies for at least 100 years. It is a fascinating and beautiful object in its own right, with the look and feel of great antiquity…but perhaps more importantly, when it is rung one can sense, ot imagine, the spiritual energy, power and purpose with which it is imbued, and the present ineffably connects to the past.
