MEHENDI : Dye for Marriages

The Hindu marriage season is a special time for Henna tattoos or 'Mehendi'. Although Mehendi is generally used in many Hindu festivals and celebrations, there's no doubt that Hindu wedding has become synonymous with this beautiful reddish dye. Hindus often use the term 'Mehendi' interchangeably with marriage, and Mehendi is considered among the most auspicious 'ornaments' of a married woman.
