1000 marriages on a single day in Bangalore

Today as many as 1000 marriages would be solemnized in Bangalore. It is an auspicious day as per the Hindu calendar – it is Friday, the day of Akshay Tritiya, the day reserved for performing good deeds like giving the daughter away in marriage. Therefore, there is a mad rush to get the marriage completed on that day in various temples and marriage venues across the city.

Bangalore, the IT city, has over 700 large and 300 medium or small size marriage halls in the city – all of these have been booked 4 to 5 months in advance for this occasion.

Even today, marriage is a holy ceremony and the auspicious moment is determined by the way the stars are oriented in heaven. That auspicious moment is chosen to tie the nuptial knot so that the married couple can lead a happy and prosperous married life. However, no one can give any guarantee as to how long the bond would last.
