So here it is then, the Dustarbanga Turban. Resembling a large megaphone placed upside down, I was beginning to wonder how it stayed put on anyone's head. We have been in Amritsar for over two days now- this is turban country- and we have been to several places around the city, including to the haloed Harmandir Sahib, or Golden Temple, which is the holiest place for the Sikhs. I do not recall ever having spotted anyone wearing a Dustarbanga turban, even those ceremonial folk in the Golden Temple. I assume it is ancient Sikh war gear, no longer in active use.
