About this photo
Traditional Indian dress varies between religion, geography, festivals and rituals. The typical dress for women in the southern state of Hyderabad, India, is a sari. Often brightly coloured with embroidery, the highest quality saris are made from silk. Jewellery is also worn in various forms; each piece is said to aid the body in some way. Bangles, for example, help with circulation and energy levels. Observe the differences in traditional dress on Insight Guides’ India’s Monuments and Tigers trip.
