Aryaman is the god of horses and mares. He is called protector of mares. Aryaman represents friendship along with Mitra. He was the third son born to Aditi. He represents the Sun’s dharma and dutiful nature and is representative of the Sun. This is why Aryaman is invoked to witness and administer Hindu marriage oaths.
