The Pakhawaj is a barrel-shaped, two-headed drum also known as “Mother of North Indian Drums”. It is also called by various names such asPakhavaj, Pakavaj, Pakuaj or Pakhvaj. It holds a religious significance as it was used by Odissi Dance Instrument Lord Ganesha.
The shell of pakhawaj is barrel-shaped and its heads look like the heads of tabla. The only difference is that the bass head does not have a black spot at the center instead it has a temporary application of paste made from mixture of flour and water.

The heads are attached to each other using a leather lacing made from calf or goat hide. It also contains wooden braces between the leather thongs and the shell so as to control the tension.
