What is Tamil matrimony?

Tamil matrimony (தமிழ் திருமணம்) takes place between a bride and groom who both have Tamil as their mother tongue. Tamil was the first Indian language to receive the classical designation from the Government of India. It has official status in Tamil Nadu, the Andaman and Nicobar Islands as well as Puducherry. It is one of the oldest surviving languages in the world.

Tamil literature dates back more than two thousand years. In 1578, Tamil became the first Indian language to be printed and published.
