  5. @spacedlaw, these are used for any celebration including marriages and during festive times there are plays based on myths and legends in which the characters use these costumes.

  14. @ Your EG Tour Guide,
    The turban is a headdress consisting of a long scarf-like single piece of cloth wound around the head. To check out the different types of turbans check out http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turban
