MUKTI GUPTESHWAR HINDU TEMPLE MINTO - INDIAN WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY SYDNEY
The day was 5th May 2011, and I drove down to Minto which was quite a drive from North Strathfield. Luckily it was after the peak rush period and the roads were fairly empty. It was a bright winter day as I reached Minto's Mukti-Gupteshwar Mandir located at eagle-view road.

Everyone was set for the ritual and the house was being decorated with colourful patterns on the floor.
The female members of the family then started preparing for the PITHI ritual where turmeric along with other herbs is applied to the groom-to-be's hands and face. They sang traditional wedding songs which were very interesting. Once all the rituals were complete, we left for the wedding ceremony at the Glenwood/Parklea GURUDWARA.
