In a village the couple reaches the marriage venue on horses or baskets, while in a city marriage the couple arrives at the venue in a decorated car. Music is an essential part of marriages. The traditional music, Pachai Baja and folk songs still popular among people are played as the Nepali people believe that playing traditional music strengthens the nuptial knot and pleases God.
As per rituals, Ghale and Gurungs used to believe in Buddhist culture but later due to the change in time they follow both Buddhist and Hindu religions. Based on these the typical arranged marriage ceremony is extremely simple. It marks the beginning of the legitimate conjugal life of a man and a woman. At the bride’s house, it entails putting on the white tika (rice mixed with curd) on the foreheads of the future couple and parents and relatives wishing them a happy life.
