For an absolutely unique experience, Rajputana Splendour
takes you to a visit to the Turban Museum in Jaipur.
One of the premier tourist attractions in the city, the Jaipur
Turban Museum houses the largest collection of turbans in
The turban is known to be a must for the men of Rajasthan.
There are two categories of turbans. The ten-meter long Safa
is tied everyday. It is said to be the symbol of a man's personality,
his position and ancestry. The 22-meter long Pag is tied once
and worn till it needs a wash.
A trip of the Turban Museum in Jaipur reveals that the turbans
are still very much in use in the inner parts of Jaipur and
Rajasthan as a whole. In fact, in many places it is considered
to be bad etiquette to come out of the house without a turban.
The Jaipur Turban Museum has all kinds of turbans in thousands
of color combinations. Made of a variety of fabrics, different
turbans are used for different occasions.
Bright colors signify birth of a child, or marriage in the
family. Dark colors mean there's been a death. In fact, you
can become a laughing stock if you wear the wrong kind of
turban at a wrong place.
During the Rajputana Splendour tour of the Turban Museum
in Jaipur, you can buy reasonably priced turbans. There are
quite a few men who will readily teach you how to tie a turban.
So, when in Rajasthan, you can easily be a Rajasthani.
