It was traditionally considered an essential part of a man’s clothing, and to appear in public without one was a sign of bad behavior. The color, pattern, and style of tying a Turban vary according to community, and even district. Thus it is said that the dialect of men’s Turbans changes every 12 miles in Rajasthan.
