Mangal Dosh

As per Indian Astrology, the position of the planets and their placement in certain houses has a lot of importance in our lives. Saying so, one of the biggest apprehensions in our matrimonial alliance is the presence of planet Mars, which can cause Manglik or Mangal Dosa in a person’s horoscope.

As per the Indian astrological system, planet Mars is considered a hostile and inauspicious planet by many. It is believed to have a negative influence on our marriage life, and anyone who is affected by its influence, either stays unmarried or faces other negative impacts in their life concerning their health, wealth, and happiness from a marriage alliance. Such persons are termed as 'Manglik'.
