About Mangalsutra 



A  Mangalsutra is a symbol of marriage in India. It is a 
sacred thread of love and goodwill by women as a symbol 
of their marriage. Specificaly the mangalsutra is considered the most revered thing of love and respect offered to the girl 
during the marriage ceremony.

It is usually a gold pendant strung from a yellow thread prepared with turmeric, a string of black beads or simply a gold chain. It is comparable to the wedding ring of the West.

 It is expected a married woman to take this thread and is the most important part of a Hindu wedding ceremony. In certain local cultures, the groom binds the first of three knots while his sisters tie the rest.

In Maharashtra it is called Mangalsutra, in tamil it is called Thaali , Mangalyasutra in Kannada
