Rajasthani Youth wearing turbans
The turbans of Rajasthan are the most colorful and impressive in whole of the India. The use of turbans was basically started by the Rajput community, who reside in the Indian state of Rajasthan. They used to wear distinct turbans and the Hindi pronunciation of turban is Paag, Safa or Pagri. Once you experience the royal culture of Rajasthan, you will be amazed with the variations of colorful turbans.
It is said that the style of the turban changes with every 15 km you travel within the geographical boundaries of Rajasthan. In some parts of the region, the sizes of turban indicate the position of the person in the society they live.

A very good trio of young men looking at something we cannot see. The turbans create a very colourful pattern here in this excellent picture.
