By India Today Web Desk: Several weddings in Chennai were postponed after the city was hit by incessant rainfall on Friday. At the Anjineyar Temple in the Pulianthope area of Chennai, five weddings were postponed due to flooding at the temple.
But couples, who had planned their wedding months ago, braved the extreme weather and made it to the temple to tie the knot.
A video from outside the temple shows a couple holding umbrellas and walking down the swampy street before entering the flooded temple grounds.
Even in the midst of the downpour, the couple seemed elated—with smiles on their faces—as they entered the temple, which was also flooded.
Several parts of Chennai and some of the neighboring districts received moderate to heavy rainfall on Friday. Schools and colleges in several districts, including Chennai, Chengalpet, Kancheepuram, Tiruvallur and Villupuram, were temporarily closed.
The Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) forecast heavy rainfall across the southern peninsula from Thursday to Sunday due to a low-pressure system that has formed over the southwestern Bay of Bengal off the coast of Sri Lanka.
