The lehenga, lehnga or langa, (also known as Ghagra or gagra, Chaniya, Pavadai and Lacha) is a form of full ankle-length skirt worn by women in India. It has long been part of the Hindu tradition and was believed to awaken the spiritual chakras of the body. It is secured at the waist and leaves the lower back and midriff bare. Different patterns and styles of traditional embroidery work are used to decorate the lehenga all across the Indian subcontinent. Gota patti embroidery is often used for festivals and weddings. The now outdated, Ghagra-choli, was predominantly worn by young girls. Even today, in Gujarat and Rajasthan, young girls and adult women still wear lehenga. It is the traditional dress of women belonging to the Bettiah Christian community of Champaran and is also worn by Marwari women. Lehenga is considered to be an appropriate garment according to Hindu culture and is also considered a sattvik garment at the spiritual level. Lehenga is worn as the lower portion of a Gagra choli or Langa Voni.
