Temple Wedding Venues: 6 Spiritual Destinations in India to get Married

Tripoto

Temples are soulful, so should the marriages be! I consider temples as not only the places of worship but also places of rich culture and knowledge. As far as Indian traditions are concerned, temple marriages are mostly preferred by couples who wish to have a low-key wedding, without making it too grand by embracing the simplicity of pious ceremony.

The calmness that surrounds your senses the moment you enter a temple is unarguably mystical. Indian temples are the abode of the spiritual being and most couples would love to start their new phase with the blessing of God. So, if you are one of them who have made up your mind on having a temple wedding, these are the temple wedding venues you must keep in mind.

Popularly known as Shri Radha Parthasarathi Mandir, this temple houses the idols of Lord Ram, Sita, Lord Krishna, and Radha. Sited at the top of Hare Krishna Hills, the magnificent architecture is 90 foot tall and the walls are adorned with Lord Krishna’s paintings. This temple provides the ideal ambience, spiritual vibe, and serenity for an occasion so special.

Indian’s are well aware of the fact that Tirupati Tirumala Devasthanam is one of the richest and admired temples.

Undoubtedly, getting married in a wedding set-up so divine is hundred times fancier than a 5-star property. Trust me; the backdrop is prettier than Karan Johar’s movie sets too.
