ancient

Very nice pictures of our ancient amazing houses which are being sadly lost to modern ugly concrete structures. Anybody know if it is still possible to buy such houses?

Goorgeous gorgeous woodwork. This brought me to tears almost. I am so happy places like this exist! Maybe more modern Indians would build houses this way if they could see them!
