Kanyadaan is Sanskrit word that signifies 
'giving the daughter away.' 

It is the custom or rite in which parents give
 their daughter to the husband, as the name
 implies. The Hindu community's religious 
system is deeply steeped in symbolism.

The bride is thought to be manifestation of 

Goddess Laxmi, while the groom is 

manifestation of Lord Vishnu, during wedding ritual.

Through this ceremony, the bride's parents 

are launching the marriage of two Gods.

The bride's parents' consent to accept the 
groom as their son-in-law is also symbolized by the kanydaan rite. 

It also indicates asking the groom to accept 
their daughter as wife, according to various 
interpretations.
