Rajasthani Turbans

Although a large part of Rajasthan is a desert, it surprisingly is very colorful! One of the best examples is the Rajasthani Turban. It's very much colorful and vibrant, and adds a unique look to the person who wears it. On my Rajasthan Tour arranged with UnseenRajasthan.com of Bharat Khatri, I couldn't believe when Bharat made more than 20 types of different turbans on his head by himself!

When in the markets, I saw many varieties of Rajasthani Turbans, and photographed them. Below are the photos of Rajasthani Turbans. To take a trial, I wore one and my wife took my photo :) The last photo is mine.
