Frog Wedding In Assam - Bhekuli Biya

Frog Wedding Assam Bhekuli Biya

An Assamese wedding where the couple is married and then left in the lake! It all makes sense when the bride and the groom happen to be frogs.

Assam's unique wedding, 'Bhekuli Biya', is the practice of marrying wild frogs. It stems from an old belief that marrying wild frogs helps bring rainfall. All the traditional Indian rituals are followed like any other human wedding.

And the cost for the wedding is shared by the entire village. Attended by the old and young alike, this wedding serves a dual purpose. A joyous celebration and a good harvest for everyone!
