Prayer or Mihrab is one of the major rug designs woven in central and western Asia, used by believers primarily to cover the bare ground or floor while they pray. Prayer rugs are characterized by the prayer niche, or Mihrab, an arch-shaped design at one end of the carpet. The Mihrab, which probably derives from the prayer niche in mosques, must point toward Mecca while the rug is in use. Mihrabs may appear in a variety of forms. Those on the prayer rugs of Caucasus, where the greatest number of these rugs have been made, are usually pointed and often have a step motif along their sides. Mihrabs on Persian rugs, however, are characteristically curvilinear and elegant, while those on Caucasian and Turkmen rugs are invariably rectilinear.
