Exploring Wedding Traditions In Orissa

July 16, 2014

Weddings in Orissa normally take place in the months of March, April and June, and are conducted in the midst of detailed rituals, customs and community celebrations.  The state is synonymous with natural beauty and richness. I recently covered this wedding that was a blend of chhatisgarhi and Orissa culture. So, I got a great opportunity to explore the uniqueness of customes that forms a part of their wedding traditions.
One of the important wedding rituals, once the baraat arrives is of jaimala. In this, the bride is brought out to the venue where she first performs an aarti of the groom and after that the couple exchange garlands with each other.
