The Story of Charbagh Carpet
Charbagh silk carpet design is having a central medallion and floral motifs with arches, represent the 'concept of paradise'. These patterns fall under the category of Charbagh (this is a Hindi Term) motif, where 'char' means Four and 'bagh' means Garden. Which basically means that there will be four gardens in the carpet. And, this is the same concept on which the Taj Mahal was built.
In religion, it is believed that there would be a day of judgment. The day when every body, who is dead would rise from their graves. Then, god would descend and decide who is going to heaven and who is going to hell.
The kings and queens who supposedly did all the right things in their life shall always have the chance to go to heaven. A paradise is created on the earth until the day of judgment.
If we consider it from the mindset of the people come from the desert region, near Iran (Mughals). They presume a paradise, there would be a center residing place covered by gardens on all four sides. It would have the gateway for the entry of the god and supplementary garden on the outer of it.
The same is the concept of this silk carpet. It has the center medallion representing the residing place. The floral works represent the garden, the arches represent the gates, and the border represents the supplementary garden.
