ghaṭam (Sanskrit: घट ghaṭam "pot", Tamil: kaṭam, Kannada: ಘಟ ghaṭa, Telugu: ఘటం ghaṭaṁ) is a percussion instrument used in the Carnatic music of South India. Its analogue in Rajasthan is known as the madga and pani mataqa "water jug".

The ghaṭam is an earthenware pot; the artist uses the fingers, thumbs, palms, and heels of the hands to strike its outer surface. The ghaṭam usually accompanies a mridangam.
