Hand Knotted Jashn-e-Chiraghan Carpet
The Mughals, during the early days of their empire celebrated the victorious return of Rama back to his kingdom with a festival of lights similar to the present day Diwali. Jashn-e-Chiraghan as they called it, much like Diwali was celebrated with feasts and fireworks. It became a part of the cultural ethos that Mughals had developed in Hindustan. This Erased Ancestry Carpet with it's glorious and celebratory appeal depicts the Mughal Diwali.
