In Asian weddings the mandap is a canopy under which the marriage vows and ceremony is held. The priest will perform a series of rituals and customs signifying the union of the Bride and Groom who will become a newly wedded couple as per the Vedas – oldest Hindu scriptures.
Indian families follow different traditions when choosing in the mandaps, some will have traditional wooden curved, or fresh flowers, or gold or, white or silk draped. Primarily they were meant for the wedding ceremony only, however in modern times they are used for conducting pre-wedding functions / events as well.
