Muktādāman (मुक्तादामन्) refers to a type of “ornaments for the loins” (śroṇī), as defined in treatises such as the Pāñcarātra, Pādmasaṃhitā and Vaikhānasa-āgamas, extensively dealing with the technical features of temple art, iconography and architecture in Vaishnavism.—Muktādāman is the collection of knotted strings which appears in the centre portion of the mekhalā. It represents the knot of the supposed to be garment (mostly invisible), which appears (assembled) in the front, with the ends being pleated between the thighs, as a sort of continuation of the knot. The Muktādāman may be embedded with gems or furnished with various types of pūrima (prominent centre-piece).
