Mysore Peta/Turban



The traditional indigenous attire of Mysore Peta/ Turban reflects the imperial royal heritage and cultural antecedents of the bygone golden era. Since times immemorial, the colorful turbans were worn by men who swayed considerable importance in matters of state administration.

In the modern times, turbans are worn during special festive occasions of religious, social or cultural importance. A relic of the past era, the Mysore Peta, popularly referred to as the turbans reflect the strong hold of cultural traditions among the native population of the modern society.

Made up of silk or cotton, the attractive and colorful turbans are often decorated with golden or silver laces and beautiful metal pendants that adds to its old glory and grandeur. During the ancient times, an individual's position in the social hierarchy depended on his particular kind of turban. With the passage of time and inclusion of modern values, the importance of turban has declined to a considerable degree. However, the turbans still occupy a prominent position during weddings and other social gatherings when social parameters of wealth and status become important.

The colorful turbans are matched with the color of the long coat that an individual wears during special occasions. Any social or religious ritual is incomplete without the traditional attire of turban. Wearing a turban during religious ceremonies portrays the respect and reverence of the local inhabitants towards the Supreme Being.

Reflecting the old glory and grandeur of the princely state, the beautifully decorated and colorful Mysore Peta/ Turban have become a fashionable dress item of the modern society. The turbans speak volumes about Mysore during the olden times.
