Prince Siddhartha Gets Married

Dandapani, a noblemen in a nearby kingdom held a swayamvar (ceremony where bride chooses husband) for her daughter Yashodhara and many royal families attend, including Prince Siddhartha and his father.

Yashodhara chose the young prince, but many of the other princes present felt this was not a good move as he wasn’t a trained warrior. This included Yashodhara’s own father.

Siddhartha offered Dandapani the chance to hold an archery and horse riding challenge so that he may prove his skill and he beat all other competitors in both events.

They lived in the palace and the king tried to provide them with all the luxuries possible. Soon they had a son together, Rahula.
