Ghidgum is a pot stand used to keep pots and vessels filled with water, buttermilk, ghee or lassi. As it is light in weight, it can be used anywhere in the house from interior to exterior spaces. More than one pot can be placed on a ghidgum by stacking them one on top of the other because of the stability offered by the pot stand as compared to a pot ring.
