According to the latest report on Aljazeera.com, in the unique 700-year-old tradition, the aspiring husbands stand in public display with a modest dowry tag, and the male guardians of girls, usually the father or brother, select the groom. Generally, the bride has no say in the process as their families who have the last word, ultimately choosing the bachelor that strikes a good balance between affordability and an impressive resumé.

Every year, according to the strange news report on Oddity Central, thousands of men gather under the Pipal trees in the local market area of Madhubani district, India’s Bihar state, and wait to be chosen by prospective brides. Called Saurath Mela or Sabhagachhi, the 9-day groom market was allegedly started by Raja Hari Singh of the Karnat dynasty over seven centuries ago to make it easier for women to find the right husband from a diverse group of men. Each groom is priced based on their capability, including their educational qualifications and family background.
