Whole Udaipur is looking forward for the upcoming marraige of Mr Lakshyaraj Singh Mewar, son of Shriji Arvind Singh Mewar, the 76th custodian of the Mewar dynasty in Udaipur. The ceremonies will take place the same way they used to centuries ago; traditions and customs will be followed just like it was in the days gone by.

What’s happening…

While preparations for the wedding of Mr Lakshyaraj Singh Mewar with Ms Nivritti Kumari Singh Deo have been underway for a long time now, the major ceremonies will begin on January 20 with the Tel Baan Utarna ceremony followed by the Varnikasi ceremony, which signifies the departure of the barat (wedding guests from the groom’s side). In keeping with true Mewari tradition the ladies from the groom’s side will not join the barat and will stay back in Udaipur. The wedding ceremony in Odisha will be an amalgamation of royal customs as the couple is declared man and wife.

City gets bedecked

The couple will return to Udaipur on January 23 and will be welcomed in ceremonial style during the Vadhupravesh (welcoming the bride) ceremony. This will be followed by a series of rituals. However, the event that the City of Lakes is gearing up for is the Shaadi Ri Goth or wedding reception which will be held on January 24 at Shikarbadi, Udaipur. It is expected that a huge number of guests including visitors from abroad and important dignitaries from all over India will land in the city to wish the bride and groom.

The wedding ceremonies will draw to a close on January 28 with the Bidai (farewell) or ceremonial farewell given to the pundits (priests), after which the ceremonies are officially declared as having been completed as per the ancient Vedic traditions adhered to by the House of Mewar and Shriji Arvind Singh Mewar.
