Traditions of Minab, Hormozgan

By March 19, 2020 Online Community

The first time I was in Minab, I was wondering why in that unbearable extreme hot weather why the women put on Borqe (Mask) and then two travelers asked me about that; I said probably it’s because they are very religious. But, I was wrong, at least to a degree I was wrong.
That Borqe is for protecting from hot weather, probably their skin would burn ( and that is important for women) And from the colors of Borqe you can find out a lot things; purple borqe means the girl is unmarried, red ones mean married or just married, orange ones mean they are married and have children, dark ones mean aged and maybe widow. I am not very sure about colours; like other men.
