Traditionally, Hindu weddings are celebrated at a well-decorated mandap – a four-pole canopy erected at the center of the stage. Although the Decor varies from region to region across India, the basic concept remains the same – to bless the bride and the groom, who tie the wedding knot, erected at the wedding venue, primarily to conduct rituals like tying the mangal sutra, pheras and exchange of garlands (jaimala). However, in the present time, apart from the wedding rituals, pre-wedding ceremonies, such as engagement, are also conducted at a mandap.
