comment What was normal attire for Hindu kings in the 15th century?
@BarathBushan: In fact I really wonder if Chola kings were fair at all - I remember reading somewhere that they looked very dark. Moreover these pictures seem to contradict the travellers' accounts which say even women roamed around bare-breasted on the streets.

@BarathBushan: Thanks for the answer. While I appreciate the depiction on Kumaragupta's coin (provided it is genuine), the other evidence that you are present are flimsy at best. Portraits of Chola kings are not real and were drawn by artists who had a free rein on their imagination.

comment What was normal attire for Hindu kings in the 15th century?
@Jayaram: All available documents of medieval travellers like Marco Polo, Ibn Battutta, Ferishta, etc agree with this point. I have reasons to suspect the Wiki article on saree and the references therein.

@Luke: Covering most of the body, perhaps. Something significantly more expansive than loincloth or two-piece, eg.
