Default Traditional House

Typical South Indian traditional house, as built and maintained at Dakshinachitra by the Madras Craft Foundation.

The central courtyard of the Chettinad house (look at the granite slabs where water falls from the roof):

Looking out from inside:

The spacious verandah and the impressive wooden pillars:

Extensive wood work in the door frame:

Mezzanine window in a typical Kerala wood house:

Brass padlock (two photos merged to create this composite):

Grill-covered courtyard of Tanjore house:


Hope you like these.
