  thobe

 

Nepal

Muslim boys in Nepal wearing a knee-long light blue thobe, a traditional Islamic outer garment similar to the jubbah (fig.), and which is commonly worn over a pair of loose trousers. These boys also wear a crochet taqiyah, and thus are covering the entire body, except for the feet, hands and face, as is required by Islamic law.
