According to the ancient texts, there is significance for every ritual that forms a part of the Indian wedding, including the haldi ceremony. This ceremony is held at both the bride and the groom’s place, on the morning of the wedding day. It is known by different names in different regions, like ubtan, mandha, tel baan, etc. It was an ancient an in-home beautification process before the wedding. In India, a lot of emphasis is given on customs and rituals.
Once the haldi is put upon the bride and the groom individually by family members and friends, they are not supposed to venture out or see each other till they meet at the wedding ceremony.
The haldi is made from the root of turmeric, mixed with rose water and a few teaspoons of sandalwood powder. It is a gooey mix, which keeps the skin rejuvenated and cool, has a strong smell and also refreshes the senses too.
