A kanger (Kashmiri: कांगर (Devanagari), کانگر (Nastaleeq); also known as kangri or kangid or kangir)[1] is an earthen pot woven around with wicker filled with hot embers used by Kashmiris and Himachalis beneath their traditional clothing to keep the chill at bay,[2] which is also regarded as a work of art.[3] In Kashmir, it is normally kept inside the Phiran, the Kashmiri cloak,[4] or inside a blanket.[5] If a person is wearing a jacket, it may be used as a hand warmer.[6] It is about 6 inches (150 mm) in diameter and reaches a temperature of about 150 °F (66 °C). It comes in different variants, small ones for children and large ones for adults. In Kangra and Chamba districts of Himachal Pradesh, the Kangri is used as a personal heater, albeit now the use has declined there to almost non-existent.
