Rajasthan Tour-Rajasthan's Pride-Turban.

Turbans are the pride of Rajasthan.It is the symbol of Pride,Loyalty,Respect and Status.Rajasthan is incomplete without Turbans.I went to Pushkar Fair in last week which is world's biggest cattle fair and there i got the opportunity to capture some beautiful turbans of Rajasthan.


















This is Real Rajasthan.

This is a whole collection of turbans, with your kind explanation it's a bit easier to see through this. Excellent series of portraits!

ladyviral said...

why do they use turbans to represent "pride, Respect and Loyalty"?

Is there a particular way that it is wore that shows differently?

Ferreira-Pinto said...

Great collection of turbans.
And with amazing colours.
Can you pick any colour or does each one have a special meaning?

joo said...

Anya said...

Hi Bharat
Those turbans are FANTASTIC & so colorful :))))

valeria said...

I'd have a red one!

Babli said...

You have taken beautiful shots of different types of turbans which are unique and colourful. Without a turban, the people of Rajasthan are incomplete. It is their pride. I always think how heavy it is to wear on their head but they are habituated and it is their custom and tradition to wear turban.

exposemaximum said...

your work is simply different and unique. kudos

Carver said...

Those are all beautiful turbans and interesting to learn about them.

George said...

The variety of turbans is fascinating, but they are all colorful.

Jacob said...

These are wonderful photos...the turbans are glorious! I think, though, that there is also some competition for great moustaches!

LadyFi said...

Such beautifully vibrant colours!

Hi Unseen! I’m back home and happy to come here!! This is the most impressive collection I've seen. Not even in Jaipur there was such a diversity!!

Meanwhile Blogtrotter is showing you an incredible sea symphony of colours. Enjoy and have a great weekend!

Robert V. Sobczak said...

It's a unique cultural heritage, to us on the outside we see them, but we don't know what they mean. So many things are like that.

SandyCarlson said...

These are very beautiful portraits of some strikingly handsome men. What colors on those turbans, too!

Hilary said...

There sure are some beauties among them. Thanks for sharing these.

Joyce said...

Colorful and intersting photos. Love your blog:)

♥ Braja said...

Oh no!!! You didn't include my favorite, that Rajasthani HOT PINK :)) I loved those; always in Jaipur when I lived there, so many men would be wearing them. Actually most particularly outside of Jaipur, on the Agra road....riding their bullock carts or camel carts, their bright pink turban proudly wrapped around their heads. Loved it....

Kilauea Poetry said...

Hi there. I like all the colors..which are similar here in that they are considered royalty. Fabulous photos! I'm adding your link too- have a great weekend-

tossan® said...

Wonderful post. Well done!

robert said...

There is a true story from Hamburg, Germany, when a man, who was wearing a turban wanted to get his driving license for a motorbike, but couldn't wear a helmet - the judges allowed him to drive without...his helmet.
A wonderful weekend for you.

Maria Valadas said...

They are differents.
Colors are beautiful.

Sonia Schmorantz said...

Muito obrigado por tua visita, estas imagens estão muito bonitas!
Um abraço, ótimo final de semana

altadenahiker said...

Wonderful portraits. As so many of your posts do, it leads to other questions. In this case, do colors and styles indicate status, family, or wealth?

Andor Marton said...

Interesting ... is the moustache too such a pride?

fufu said...

what a lovely and colourful turbans there... cnat wait to visit india...

neide said...

Passing pra to wish you a blessed weekend.

Bjss dear friend.

Everson Russo said...

Good weekend for you my friend.

Lady Di Tn said...

When you say cattle fair, I think of cows but all I saw in the back ground were camels. How much material is in a turban and I noticed none were wrapped the same. Also, several of the men were wearing ear rings. How long has this been custom as the men in US are just in the past few years started wearing them. The collection of turbans were very colorful. Peace

Araceli said...

Great collection of Turbana. A nice way to meet your people.

Tammie Lee said...

It is quite wonderful to see all these styles of wrapping and color in a turban. Thank you for sharing!

RuneE said...

They were a gorgeous find - a treasure in every way. I hope they don't "modernize" them away.

Vamsee Modugula said...

What a cool compilation of turbans. Lovely colors - great post.

Rosa's Yummy Yums said...

Nice colorful turbans!

Cheers,

Gata Verde said...

Lovely...
;))

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Hi There, What gorgeous colors of the turbans, Raj. I did notice that most of the men are OLDER. Do the younger men wear them also--or is the respect learned as they get older?

Thanks.
Betsy

James said...

This is an excellent collection of turbins and mustaches too.

Janie said...

What a lot of different styles and colors. I can see that all the men take pride in them.

AB said...

It seems no turban is complete without matching moustache or beard!

b said...

I WANT ONE LIKE THAT IN THE FOTOS....
IT'S TRUE!

ShySongbird said...

What a great post Bharat! The turbans are all so colourful and they look incredibly difficult to tie/wrap. What a selection of characterful faces as well!

I also loved your previous post about the market. I would love to be 'let loose' there, among all the sumptous fabrics and beautiful jewellery. I once dreamt that I was in a place just like that... full of colour and atmosphere...I have never forgotten that dream and your vivid photos have brought it to life!

Carla said...

nice faces
kiss

Maria, Simplesmente said...

Very beautiful

Marcos Campos said...

Hello '!
Very beautiful photos, really the color of your country is too much!
And then the turbans, super cool, I'm well connected in using things in mind, but nothing like a cultural reason ...
Bye!

Talon said...

You weren't kidding about the color - they're amazing! Great photographs, Bharat!

aa said...

Colors are very vibrant...! Excellent collection
of turbans in very expressive faces!

grace said...

Pushkar fair hmmm... you make me jealous. On a serious note, lovely pics. I didn't know that there are so many different ways of tying a turban. Its actually quite beautiful to find pride so entwined with tradition.
I appreciate your sensitivity to these minute elements of the life and culture of people.
Looking forward to more excitement on your blog!

aa said...

Thank you for the award Unseen Rajasthan! I will take with pleasure.

Beth Niquette said...

How amazing this is. I am just blown away. That these men allowed you to photograph them is also quite a statement.

These photos fill my eyes, which is the greatest compliment I can give.

Conceição Duarte said...

Amigo,
Thank you for your visit and I'm glad he liked the video, there's a little of our samba. You translate the text? Well, the work of a samba school that has more than 4500 people on the avenue is impressive, and full of sacrifices for beauty on the carnaval in the parade which is televised to the world /

The post of his turban, is a wonder to see the custom of other people. The color is wonderful and it must have a sense of protection very large due to SOL. Wonder photos. Congratulations!

Sorry - my english...

Hi Bharat:)

Many thanks for showing so many varieties of turbans with lovely colors. The different ways of tying the turban also astonished me. In Kochi no one wears turban. Rajasthani culture is marvelous.

Have a nice day:)

St Ives Birds & Photo Journal said...

That is a fantastic set of turbans. I love the colours (I have only seen people wearing white ones in Britain).
They look very dignified in the same way that dreadlocks do.

Olivier said...

I love how different they are and all those bright colours. Must be quite a sight in a crowd.

Babzy said...

wow , this is an awsome serie , very good idea , nice portraits !

Splendid Little Stars said...

They are beautiful and so interesting!

Blogaire said...

I never realized turbans came in so many different colors. Does the particular color have any significance for the wearer? It is interesting too that men are wearing such bright colors, because in Western countries men generally wear dark, conservative clothes.

foongpc said...

Oh! So many different types and style of turbans and in different colours too! : )
