Solah Shringar translates to sixteen embellishments or adornments and is one of the oldest existing traditions for a bride to be. This ritual, as mentioned in the Vedic texts, is a mandatory adornment process to be done by a woman on her wedding day.
These adornments are believed to alleviate the beauty of the woman and give her a goddess-like aura. The ritual consists of sixteen different embellishes that the woman must wear. Bindi, sindoor, maang tika, kajal, nose ring, ear ornaments, necklace, Mehendi, armband, bangles, aarsi, kamarbandh, payal, toe ring, fragrance and hair accessories are supposed to be worn by the woman, all of which end up giving her the ultimate embodiment of power and allure.
The Vedic texts also mention that these embellishments also help in attaining better health. India Imprints respects the history behind this tradition and encourages everyone to know about its significance.
