Traditional Chitrali House

Pictured above is the traditional Chitrali house called 'baipash'. It has 6 strong pillars supporting the entire structure. The design of the house is so strong that it can stand even if walls around it will be taken away. The structure is quite skillfully adapted to the seismic condition of the Chitral valley, which is traditional receives more shocks of earthquake. The house has a hole right on the roof to let the smoke out and daylight in. It has hearth at the center where women cook food and all the people in the house get around the fire to get heat in winter. There are two sleeping place on both side and wood storage near the entrance.
