Very sacred indeed. A fine closeup with lovely details. It is also one of the symbols of the Indian culture and traditions of value. Well done

more interesting docs. leading to the question "What is the auspicious time?"

@grouser: Everydqay has an auspicious timing...a couple of hours which are considered best for specific occasions and we follow these hours..It could be any time between 5 a m and 11 a m. It is believed that things done at this time have good potential...but ofcourse..everything depends on on's destiny...and there are divorces happening even when good days and auspicious timings are observed !
