Kanyadaan



One of the most important rituals that take place on the main day of the wedding, the Kanyadaan is the actual ceremony when the parents of the bride entrust the groom and hand over the responsibility of the bride to him. This ritual is very important as it completes the wedding as well as strikes the emotions of the parents of the bride as they hand over their daughter to her husband.

This happens when the father of the bride takes the right hand of her daughter and places it in the right hand of the groom. Holy water is then poured over their hands to sanctify the union. This signifies that the responsibility is now being shifted to him. In return the groom touches the right shoulder of the bride as acceptance of the responsibility. Then the bride’s parents offer gifts to the groom in addition to their biggest gift which is their daughter.
