Arya Vysya people follow the ancient Vasavi Puranam. The people reside in Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Maharashtra and Orissa. During their marriages interesting rituals like the Enne Shastra (carried out early morning which requires the bride and her parents to be oiled) and Kashi Yatra (the groom pretends to go to kashi and the bride's brother stops him by his sister's hand in marriage) are celebrated. Then, Gowri Pooja takes place and devotional songs are recited to make the wedding auspicious. Next Ganesh Pooja is done, followed by Kanyadaan and Kanya Daan Akshata thus, completing the beautiful Arya Vysya Matrimony Ceremony.
