Pheras are performed in front of the small havankund where fire is lit .The bride’s end of the dupatta or her saree’s small edge is tied with groom’s edge of an auspicious robe after which they move around the fire lit havankund . This completes the phera ceremonies. The bride and groom’s moving around the havankund, is probably the reason this ceremony has been named as phera ceremony. Usually total pheras are seven in number, which also signify in hindu religion togetherness for seven births.  Fire or agni as mentioned in hindi is considered the most pure element of mother nature, hence it is used in wedding ceremonies.
