  1. A mesh of interlocking horizontal cedar(locally, deodar) wooden locks are created -and in this dressed or raw stone is packed.
  2. The most common type of Kath-Kuni wall is made by laying apart two square sections wooden wall beams longitudinally parallel to each other to define the width of the wall.



  1. These are lap-jointed or nailed by the cross joist.
  2. The whole framework done is known as Cheol.
  3. With inherent elasticity, the design has an enormous seismic response.
  4. When tremors have dislodged the stones from the frame, and later, have been hammered back into the intact mesh of wood houses and temples


  1. Style is present in the districts of Shimla,

Kinnaur and Kullu.

    Long time supporter, and thought I’d drop a comment.

    Your wordpress site is very sleek – hope you don’t mind
    me asking what theme you’re using? (and don’t mind if I steal it?


    I just launched my site –also built in wordpress like yours– but the theme slows (!) the site down quite
    a bit.

    In case you have a minute, you can find it by searching for “royal cbd” on Google (would appreciate any feedback) – it’s still in the works.

    Keep up the good work– and hope you all take care
    of yourself during the coronavirus scare!

    I am really loving the theme/design of your blog. Do you ever run into any internet browser compatibility
    problems? A few of my blog readers have complained about
    my site not operating correctly in Explorer but looks
    great in Safari. Do you have any suggestions to help fix this issue?
