Indian Ceremony

Immediately following the baraat at BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir in Cincinnati.

Our Hindu ceremony will take place under a mandap (four-post canopy). The key rituals involved in this ceremony involve giving away the daughter by her father (Kanyadaan), holding hands of the bride and groom near the fire to signify union (Panigrahana) and circling the fire seven times symbolizing the promises they will make to each other (Saptapadi). A full description of the ceremony will be provided the day of the wedding.
