Description:
Ehee, also known as Bel bibaha is a ceremony in Nepal in which pre-adolescent girls are ‘married’ to the bel fruit tree, which is a symbol of the god Shiva , ensuring that the girl becomes and remains fertile. It is believed that if the girl’s husband dies later in her life, she is not considered a widow because she is married to Shiva , and so already has a husband that is believed to be still alive.
