The meaning and significance of Mangalsutra

A mangalasutra (from Sanskrit mangala, signifying ‘holy, promising/auspicious’, and sutra, signifying ‘thread/bond’) is a neckband that the groom ties around the bride’s neck in Indian and sub-Indian nations, in a function called Mangalya Dharanam (Sanskrit for “wearing the promising bond”), which distinguishes her as a wedded lady. It is typically a neckband with dark dabs hung from a dark or yellow string arranged with turmeric. It is a symbol of marriage worn by ladies. In specific networks, the groom ties the first knot while his sister ties whatever is left of the knots. Available in gold, white or red dots the mangalasutra is available in many choices, contingent upon provincial and personal aspirations and needs.
