Sherwani (Urdu: Ø´ÛŒØ±ÙˆØ§Ù†ÛŒ ) is a long coat-like garment worn in South Asia, very similar to an Achkan or doublet. It is worn over the Kurta and Churidar, Khara pajama, a salwar, or, in India, a dhoti. The Sherwani originated in Central Asia and was the court dress of nobles of Turkish and Persian origin in the Delhi Sultanate and Mughal Empire, before being more generally adopted in the late eighteenth century.
