Anarkali suits are and have been one of the most coveted ethnic outfits since the Mughal Era. The long flowing attire fitted at the bust has been modified over the years to match the trends. The word “Anarkali” literally means “bud of the pomegranate tree”. The etymology of the term Anarkali is as fascinating as the ensemble itself. Legend has it that Anarkali, also known as Nadir Begum, was a beautiful courtesan in the fort of Emperor Akbar. He was enamored by her splendor and she was his fondest concubine. She was murdered at his orders when Akbar condemned her affair with his son Prince Salim. They say she was buried alive between two walls in Lahore, Pakistan. Prince Salim, later known as Jahangir, when enthroned, erected a tomb in her loving memory. The words “Could I behold the face of my beloved once more, I would thank God until the day of resurrection.” adorn the magnificent sepulcher situated in the midst of a pomegranate garden.
