In Hindu tradition there is huge significance for the marriage ceremony of God and Goddess. On this day people decorate their homes with colors, especially door entrances with mango leaves. New clothes are worn and special prayers are offered to Lord Rama at home. Devotees then visit the temple to witness the marriage ceremony of Lord Rama and Sita Devi and chant their names with their complete devotion, faith, and love.

Kalyanam means well being. Come and join for pooja @Mandir or online and the blessings will bestow upon all the devotees worshipping and witnessing the auspicious celebration.
