Next time you’re visiting the Taj Mahal, here’s something that you can do:
Two young Swedish women tied the knot at the weekend in the first known lesbian wedding at the Taj Mahal, India’s ethereal monument to love.
The couple, known only as Sandra and Sarah, followed Hindu rituals during the ceremony, which was conducted by a priest at the Mahadeva Shiva temple near the Taj Mahal in the town of Agra.
After exchanging garlands, Sandra, 19, marked the head of 18-year-old Sarah with vermilion. They then made seven circuits around a fire in the traditional marriage custom.
The priest, Dharm Das, initially refused to marry the couple but relented after they gave an offering to the temple and said they would be his life-long disciples, reports said.
