Jiretope is an unique cone-shaped pagdi with a tura. Shivaji Maharaj used to wear this headgear which was not worn by anybody else in his kingdom. It was a symbol of his gharana.
One of the most important elements of this pagdi is a lace of good quality pearl strings which hangs on the front portion of the pagdi. Some decorative jewels are also added to ornate it. Brooch (kalgi) adds the glory to this pagdi.
