Astonishingly beautiful, Indian brides wear a hair ornament that is like a pendant for the forhead. It is called a maang tika. They’re a longstanding Indian bridal tradition with a storied history in painting and sculpture. Maang tikas have a hook that attaches to your hair so that the maang (string) can rest in the center of your head and dangle the jewelry (tika) onto your forehead. It looks gorgeous, and also carries a great deal of significance in Ayurvedic medicine, a traditional Indian healing practice, which has spread to other parts of the world.
