Photo of the Day: Indian Turbans

by Beth Whitman (December 11th, 2009)

I took this video at Jaisalmer Fort. He was quite adept at wrapping that turban – and so fast, too!

Apparently, this gentleman in Jaisalmer is the most photographed man in Rajasthan. Quite handsome, isn’t he?

Rajasthan Man with Moustache

Maybe not the most photographed, but he was fun.

And here’s as still of the guy after he wrapped his turban in the video.

Travel Well!

    Cool! I had no idea that so much fabric was involved, or how it was wrapped.

    I like the fact that he wraps it himself. I hate the cliche you see in movies and TV shows of men not being able to tie a necktie and women having to do it for them. Seriously? In real life, I don’t have the first clue how to tie a necktie, while my husband is quite proficient, despite not wearing one every day. He can do full or half Windsor.

    Heather – he DOES know he’s cool. Don’t know if he can tie a necktie but he does a great job with that turban!

    This should be accompanied by a “DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME” message.

    Hm. I can just imagine the mess I’d get into trying to do this for the first time. I’d be half blind or strangled by the time I’d walked two paces along the road as it all collapsed…
    Wonderful colours – thanks for this.
