Kannada wedding rituals
Satkaar.com is pleased to provide an insight to these traditions...
The Kannada Wedding Rituals are very similar to the traditional Hindu weddings. The rituals are simple and allow the families to have a good time together. Different communities in Karnataka observe some different customs and traditions during the wedding and there is not much difference between them.
In a typical
Kannada Wedding, there are pre-wedding, wedding and post-wedding rituals that
are generally adhered to. In the pre-wedding rituals, there are rituals like
Nandi, Nischay Tamulam, Havan, and Kaashi Yatre. Weddings are held in Mandaps
and the Kannada Wedding Rituals during the actual ceremony are Mandap Puja,
Dhare Herdu, and finally the Saptapadi.
The Mandap Puja
is the important ritual in the entire ceremony where the place of marriage is
worshipped and then Var Puja is performed by the parentís of the bride. The
maternal uncle of the bride accompanies her to the stage and then there is the
garlanding ceremony. During this ceremony, the brideís sister covers the face of
the bride with a fan made of peacock feathers. The priest then chants the hymns.
