Learning Goal:Know and understand the history, beliefs, and process of mehendi, a custom that is part of a traditional Indian wedding ceremony.



Your own explanation and visual representation


History of Mehendi

Take Off—Touch Down

  • Henna is made by grinding the leaves of the henna tree to a paste.

  • Mehendi is the application of henna in intricate designs, usually to the palms, back of the hands, and sometimes the feet.

  • Historians are certain that mehendi originated in India.

  • Henna artists generally come from the farming caste.

  • The deeper the color, the longer the love between the couple will last.


  • Write three facts you learned about mehendi.

  • Share your statements with your partner.

pp. 103-119

Compare the Mehendi to the Western custom of wearing a white wedding dress.
