New Delhi, Oct. 30 (ANI): A Spanish couple, inspired by Indian culture, married in accordance with Hindu rituals in Agra, the city of the world famous Taj Mahal.

Salvia tied 'mangalsutra', a Hindu symbol of marriage around the neck of Maria and put vermilion on her forehead, a sign of marital status of a Hindu woman.

"First is probably the kindness and love ness of this religion makes you feel very welcome and first of all I need to learn so many things but the spirituality of the religion is the main thing I feel attracted about," said Salvia.

"I feel very strong in this... because it gives me love and happiness for life always," said Maria.
