Ethereal feel fills the air at royal wedding

The wedding of the scion of the erstwhile Mysuru royal family Yaduveer Krishnadatta Chamaraja Wadiyar with Trishika Kumari Singh of Dungarpur, Rajasthan was held as per the schedule at 10.20 am at the Mysuru Palace on Monday.

It was a perfect fairytale wedding attendant with all the glitter and smiles. Most of the guests were in traditional dress and wore antique jewellery. They were all greeting each other and were involved in the wedding-related rituals as if they were in another world.

Trishika is the second daughter of Harshwardhan Singh and Maheshree Kumari.
Yaduveer’s ‘dibbana’ (wedding party) arrived from the Madan Vilas entrance of the Palace at around 6.30 am and he was welcomed by the members of the bride’s family at the Savaar Thotti, an enclosure, which also opens at Ane Bagilu. Meanwhile, the bride had performed the Gowri puja.

Yaduveer occupied the ‘hasemane’ (wedding seat) at Mayura mantapa of the kalyana mantapa at 7 pm. The bride arrived at 9.05 am, during the auspicious ‘Karkataka lagna’ and ‘Savitra’ muhurta and joined him in the rituals. Even though the muhurta was till 9.35 am, the ‘mangalya dharana’ (tying of the nuptial knot) was possible only at 10.20 am. An astrologer involved in the ceremony said, only the beginning of the rituals should be within the muhurta.

Later, the couple conducted the ‘laja homa’ and received the greetings of relatives and friends. Priests from nearly 30 temples, both within the Palace precincts and outside, had performed puja and brought the prasada, which was offered to the couple.

All rituals were conducted in front of the late scion Srikantadatta Narasimharaja Wadiyar’s garlanded portrait, under the guidance of Pramodadevi. Yaduveer’s grandaunt Indrani Devi and granduncle Rajachandra sat beside the groom as guardians and guided him through the rituals. Pramodadevi looked elated and happy as she was managing the affairs with ease and was also greeting the guests, most of them from erstwhile royal families from Andhra Pradesh, Gujarat, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Punjab.

Pramodadevi was also seeking the guidance of her mother Puttarathnammanni. Srikantadatta’s sisters Kamakshi Devi and Vishalakshi Devi, brothers-in-law, nephews and nieces, Yaduveer’s biological parents Swaroop Anand Gopalraj Urs and Tripurasundari Devi were present.
