Back here in our country matrimony is considered to be the holiest and most celebrated events in any persons life. It is a holy union where you enter to the next stage of your mortal life. I shot this scene at a local south Indian temple that is undergoing structural renovations. The gopura, like I mentioned about once before, is supposed to be as holy as the deity inside the temple. The new addition to the gopura of this temple depicts a traditional South Indian Hindu marriage, between god, instead of humans. I wonder how grand  the celebrations would be up in the heavens!

  1. Interesting entry. Thanks for sharing and for the pingback 🙂

  2. How refreshing to hear of a culture valuing and cherishing marriage —
    I think the West pays more lip service to this, and really doesn’t cherish it as an ideal at all —
