Hindus attach a great deal of importance to marriages. The ceremonies are very colourful, and celebrations may extend for several days. The bride's and groom's home entrance, doors, wall, floor, roof are often decorated with colors, balloons,and other decorations.

There are a few key rituals common in North Indian Hindu weddings which involve the giving away of daughter by the father, voluntarily holding hands near the fire to signify union, and taking seven steps with each step including a promise to each other before fire.



Sue-On fit right in with her decorative Henna tattoos
A must for every wedding ceremony.


We made our exit past the adjoining Temple ruins
