Looking for costume references

This has to do with character design for a fantasy universe, so I suppose I can put it here.

I'm looking for costume references, illustrated, for historical India. I'm not looking at a particular period since this is really just idea-hunting. I'm really, really interested in finding high-quality images. Online resources are definitely preferred, but if you have a favorite book with lots of illustrations that's affordable to recommend, I'll look into buying it.

(I've been to the Costumer's Manifesto site, but a lot of the links are broken or contain poor quality images that are hard to figure out.)

Edit: As for region, I'm looking at costume that belongs to the same tradition as the stereotypical sari (although I'm definitely looking for variations in costume!). So any region where this type of costume is/was worn.
