The Art of the Indian Haldi Ceremony

The Haldi ceremony is a ritual holy bath which is one of the pre-wedding ceremonies in India. In Indian culture, turmeric holds a special place of honor. It is known for its anti-inflammatory and other healing properties and as such is considered a popular medicine. But where it holds a sacred place is in Indian weddings.  Turmeric (haldi), oil and water are blended into a paste and then applied to both the bride and groom’s body on the morning of the wedding day. In a few cultures, this ceremony is also held a day before the wedding, after the mehendi ritual. It is known by different names in different regions, like ubtanmandhatel baan, etc. The mixture is believed to bless the couple before the wedding.
