The concept of hookah is thought to have originated in medieval India. In ancient times the hookah bowls are completely hand made by clay. Aristocrat peoples were using the terracotta bowls. Now there are lots of bowls with different shapes. A hookah consists of several components, four of which are essential for its operation. Bowl is one of the most important components.
Hookah Bowl. Also known as the head of the hookah, the bowl is a small box, usually made out of clay, marble, or glass that holds the coal and molasses during the hookah session. The bowl is loaded with tobacco then enclosed by perforated aluminium foil.
Bowls have evolved in recent years to incorporate new designs that keep juices in the tobacco from running down the stem. Different Hookah bowls can create a different impact on the quality of hookah session. There are many shapes of hookah bowls,
