While Adhaar is mandatory for several government schemes these days,  Almora’s Golu Devta temple decided to make it mandatory for marriages so as to make sure that both the groom and bride are not under-age.

What is more, no other ID proofs like Driving licence, Voter ID card or PAN cards are not accepted here as Aadhaar cards provide more background information about a person.

The priests at this temple first check the original Aadhaar so as to make sure incidents of child marriages don’t take place at the temple and only then lets the couple marry.

A popular place to get married, many young couples, even few from Nepal visit the temple so as to solemnise their marriage.

With so many people approaching them for marriage, the priests faced an extremely difficult time doing a background check on each and every couple.
