Rajasthani Women

rajasthan woman 01

Rajasthani Women are possible one of the finest decorated on my travels in north India. Their women are always dressed in vivid colored ghaghra or saree made by either silk or cotton. These dresses are usually in bright colors such as blue , orange and red. A peice of cloth is often used to cover the head from desert sun heat for modesty purpose.

I love how finely jewellery decorated these woman are right from the head, neck to waist to the legs. These jewellery represent some kind of status for Rajasthan women.  The one on top of her head would be called Bor. The nose chain represents her marital status

We received an invitation from this Rajasthani woman who then tried to sell us stuffs that we don’t need from her, however we gave some money to her although she’s still pissed off. Always be vary of house visitation offer when you are in India.
