I would like to know the origin of “Mekkamothiram”, “Kunuk” (heavy gilt gold ring) and “Girdles Aranjanam” of Syrian Christian women and “Silk Jubba”, Kasav Mundu” etc. of men.
Is it originated from Brahmin culture or is from migrated Jewish culture?
When I read the Chapter “Genesis & Exodus”, in the Bible the children of Jacob were asked by Moses to borrow the ornaments of Egyptians while they flee from Egypt.
Is the “Kunuk or Mekkamothiram” have any relevance with Efgyptian culture? Please clarify.
