Thatched house village

Near Anantnag, Kashmir

A small medieval village in the foothills of the Kashmir valley. The houses are adobe (mud) with straw thatching for roofs, arranged helter-skelter on meandering streets, without straight lines -- that is without the need for vehicles. This picture was taken about 1976.
