Bangles - Indian Discovery

Bangles or Churi are traditional ornaments worn by Indian women, especially Hindus. They are worn after marriage to signify matrimony. It is tradition that the bride will try to wear as many small glass bangles as possible at her wedding and the honeymoon will end when the last bangle breaks.

Rajasthani traditional Bangles

Some men wear a single bangle on the arm or wrist called as kada or kara. In Sikhism, The father of a Sikh bride will give the groom a gold ring, a kara (steel or iron bangle), and a mohra. Chooda is a kind of bangle that is worn by Punjabi women on her wedding day. It is a set of white and red bangles with stone work.



Glass bangles are mostly produced in the old Indian city of Firozabad in North India. Hyderabad also has a historic market for bangles named the Laad Bazaar.
