Village Fence

A village fence, which was built to guard their houses, also plays a role of hanger where they put cloths for dry.

Pictures were captured at Mannavanur, a mountain village near Kodaikanal that overlooks rolling grassland and another side with terrace farming. Due to great source of meadow wild bison (Indian guar) frequent this area and thus also called as bison valley.

The houses here mostly seemed to build using clay mud and bricks and roofs thatched in iron sheets, which I perhaps believe is to withstand the cold weather and mountain terrain.

A fence makes a good place to dry clothes.

You keep surprising me with the different terrains of India. I never imagined you will have this kind of area in your country. Great photos of the fences with backgrounds. I hang my extra shirt on a plant while I am mowing the yard. Thanks for stopping by my blogs. I really do appreciate it.

I would be excited to see the real houses built from clay and mud. I have been hearing this for a long time.

Good use of the fence for drying laundry on. Very different housing from what we see in the US.
