The Hindu faith has no central authority regarding the LGBTQ community, with opinions largely varying between different temples.

'Wedding crasher' on the loose, allegedly stealing couples’ gifts, authorities say

'Wedding crasher' on the loose, allegedly stealing couples’ gifts, authorities say The "wedding crasher" has been targeting weddings around Comal County in Texas, authorities say.

But according to the Human Rights Campaign, 'some Hindu communities continue to be unwelcoming of LGBTQ people, often reflecting attitudes imported from conquering nations, such as the British Empire in India.'

The couple referenced how groundbreaking it was to not only marry each other in a Hindu temple but also celebrate the moment in photographs online.

'It was such a big moment in our lives, and the photos capture our feelings to perfection,' they told the publication about the viral pictures. 'It might also be because the wedding took place in a Hindu temple, and that hasn't been seen by the world with same-sex marriages.'

Heartfelt messages poured onto the multiple posts shared on both Madiraju and Shah's Instagram pages.

'Love always wins! Congratulations to you both and wishing you a lifetime of happiness together,' one commenter wrote.

Another person wrote: 'That's such a beautiful picture. Loads of love from a stranger!'

The couple loved the responses they were receiving from strangers who were touched by their traditional nuptials at the Hindu temple.

'The response has given a whole new meaning to our marriage, and we are excited about the social changes this will help make,' they said.

India has made strides in recent years to support the LGBTQ community, but same-sex marriage is still not legal in the country. But it does not prohibit same-sex marriages.

'We didn't realize the impact a simple wedding at a temple would have on people around the world looking for hope,' the couple wrote in a heartfelt Instagram post.
