Mangalsutra, Thaali, Thirumangalyam, Mangalyam, or Minnu. These are the many names of the sacred jewellery that the groom ties around the bride's neck as the couple solemnises their wedding in the Hindu wedding ceremony. The ritual where the groom graces the bride's neck with the Mangalsutra is both, emotional and beautiful. On that note, let's go over some South Indian Mangalyam portraits that are sure to get your happy tears rolling!

South Indian Mangalyam Portraits

Mangalsutra is made of two words, Mangal and Sutra where the former means auspicious and the latter means thread. So, the Mangalsutra literally means an auspicious thread that the bride wears for the well being of herself and her husband and for a happy married life. It is a celebrated piece of bridal jewellery that is worn across almost all parts of India, from the North to the South. In South Indian weddings, the Mangalsutra is called Thaali, Thirumangalyam, Mangalyam, or Minnu.
