Ganjifa is a card game and type of playing cards that are most associated with Persia and India. The wet cotton rags are layered and pasted into cloth roundels with glue. The designs of these forgotten cards have not changed at all in the last one thousand years. After Ganjifa cards fell out of use in Iran before the twentieth century, India became the last country to produce them. The form prevalent in Odisha is Ganjapa. The earliest origins of the cards remain uncertain, but Ganjifa cards as they are known today are believed to have originated in Persia hence it has traveled miles to reach India. The game became popular at the Mughal court and standardized by emperor Akbar. The game later spread to the general public. The Ganjifa cards once commonly played in Nepal, India, Turkey, Iran and some Arab lands, the game has become desolate now.
