Since the ancient times to the present, incense burning has been playing an important role in religious ceremonies worldwide.
Besides homes and institutions, governed by a variety of beliefs, it is used as a part of the ceremonies, be it temples, monasteries, shrines and other places of reverence or worship.
Incense sticks (Agarbattis) and their silky swirling smoke are visible as a customary rite at all kinds of places, gatherings and occasions considered holy and sacred.
While offering special prayers, celebrating anniversaries and in a range of related religious activities among different cultures the usage of incense sticks remain popular. The simple reason is perhaps, people evolve in their living habits and behaviour but change little in practicing their respective religion.
