Talking about her wedding Kavita says, “There are no cards printed, no frenzy, no do’s and don’ts and no invites. I know it’s not possible to take all my family and friends up to the Himalayas in this weather where it’s snowing n freezing and most roads closed only hike-able, so just 15 of us are making this trip up hence I hope you understand this and extend your love and blessings our way.”

Significance of Triyuginarayan Temple
The Triyuginarayan temple dedicated to Lord Vishnu is a holy site where Lord Shiva and Parvati got married. This glorious wedding was formalised by Lord Vishnu who became Parvati’s brother and Lord Brahma became the priest. The couple took saat pheras or the seven steps at the holy fire in the temple’s front which eternally burns till today.
Due to this perpetual fire, the Triyuginarayan temple is also known as ‘Akand Dhuni temple’. Many pilgrims who visit this temple offer wood in the fire and take away the holy ash which is considered to be propitious for marriage. The Brahma Shila in front of the temple marks the exact place of the wedding. There are silver idols of Lord Vishnu, Goddess Lakshmi and Goddess Saraswati located inside the temple.
