In Hinduism, color is a key element. People of India use colors very much in their everyday lives. Color is used in their appearance, their home furniture, urban furniture and ornaments used in decorating places. They also use it in their make-up, their houses and their paintings. Color is seen in their statues, their urban symbols and urban vehicles (such as bicycles, motorbikes, rickshaws, taxis and buses). Interior and exterior designing of temples, either the important temples or the small ones build within tree trunks, involves many colors. White, red, orange, yellow, green, blue and black are the colors that have symbolically come together with the culture of this country as something that is part of the ethics and the religion of people. The religious and traditional life, with color as a significant element, plays such an important role in the life of the Indians that even the modern society, the well-educated and the elites have been influenced by it. Some colors, such as blue, were attributed to gods and some other colors used in painting the temples, have been extracted from nature and due to repetition have gradually become symbols and have come to be considered holy. Search for the origins of these colors and the influence of climate and ethics on their formation has shown that in the thoughtway of the Indians, some colors have been ascribed to gods. In some cases these colors have been elicited from nature, such as blue that is seen tremendously in the creation as it is the color of the skies, the seas and the oceans.
