Bridegroom on horse

These are a few photographs taken in Pushkar, Rajasthan, of a bridegroom atop a horse, in a baraat. It is a traditional custom in North India for the bridegroom to travel on a horse to reach the house of the bride. Family and friends accompany the bridegroom in a procession which often includes a live band. Dancing and singing in the streets during the wedding procession is the traditional way. Fireworks are common.

The procession takes place in the evening. It's a crowded street and the procession blocks the road.
