festivals, weddings, important events, and

The holy city of Varanasi is holy because it is located on the healing waters of the famous Ganges River and New Delhi is a very populer place, a huge tourist attraction. Besides having awesome foods and beautiful saris, there are other things that make India the greatest place ever...like... In India traditional meals only consist of one main course. Also, many Indian courses come from Chinese recipes. For example, fried rice. In northern regions bread is a lot more important because of its dry climate. They prepare most of the food with foreign spices and sauces. Even though most meals are served with one course, desserts are still very delicious. Indian cooking blends cultures and older ages of food perfectly. Indian Wedding Ceremony The most common colors used in Indian weddings are Gold, Red, and even Purple. During the wedding ceremony photos are not allowed to be taken in the wedding temple. The style of the sari has been unchanged for thousands of years. Depending on the type of festival your going to,different types of fabrics are used. Cotton is used for all kinds of saris. For a more formal kind of fabric, chiffen is used. Both of the two can be died into the certain color of choice. Silk fabric is the most expensive, yet the finest of all. For many many years the sari has been one of the most popular kinds of dresses in the world! Many different types of prints and designs are embroided into the sari, each design to tell its own story. The sari is a wonderful piece of clothing and will hopefully be famous for many years to come. Henna-A tropical shrub that is used as dye Women mark their bodies with henna before they meet their husbands. Often, henna is tatooed onto skin for celebrations Although each wedding ceremony may be a bit different from another, this is the most common ceremony...
During the first ceremonial event, traditional Indian music is played by a flutist. This first event is called the "Mangal Vadya" Next is the "Swagatam". During this ceremonial event, the groom arrives with his family and friends and they are greeted by the bride's family and friends The groom is first greeted by the bride's younger sister or neice who holds a pot of water for him to drink and ward off evil spirits. The bride's mother then welcomes the groom and does a similar ceremony to ward off evil spirits he may have encountered on his way to the wedding. He is then told to break the saapath (the earthen clay pot) to simbolize strength. Lastly, he is led to the stage where the wedding ceremony will occur. The bride is then brought by her maternal uncle into the ceremonial room where she is seated behind a white curtain to symbolize traditional barriers. After the father gives his thanks, the curtain is removed and the couple exchange flower garlands. The garlands symbolize their acceptance of each other. After those ceremonies there are about 10 more steps until the bride and groom are married. These last steps vary and are extremely traditional.
