Red dots

What are those red dots Indian women have on their foreheads? I've always been curious to know.

  • This is what I found: 

     "It depends on the part of India you are referring to. In certain regions it means the woman is married, in others it is simply a body decoration. It is in between the eyebrows because this area is a major nerve center in the human body. It is also the sixth chakra, the third-eye chakra. It is the seat of wisdom and is related to clear insight. "

    I never new about the third eye symbol.  =D
