Nautch: Dancers in Kashmir

“The women of the Vale of Kashmir, one of the loveliest places in the world, have long been considered among the most beautiful in India. The languorous and exotic nautch dancers, with their jeweled headdresses and their richly embroidered costumes, play a conspicuous part in Kashmir ceremonies, particularly on those occasions when the Maharaja squanders a fortune for the celebration of some August event.” 1928
