Matha Patti is a traditional Indian bridal jewelry piece. Matha means head and Patti means band. So the meaning of the word Matha Patti is a decorated head band for the hair.
Jahangir was the fourth Mughal Emperor, who ruled from 1605 until his death in 1627. He scandalised the orthodox clergy in Mughal India with these zodiac coins. After his death, his wife Nur Jahan gained control over the empire and began issuing coins in her name—Nur Jahani coins. We named this matha patti after her. Can you spot the Zodiac signs?
