A house in Shani Shinganapur, India, where virtually all homes lack doors. Shani, the Hindu god to whom the local temple is devoted, is said to keep vigil over Shani Shinganapur, a town of around 15,000 people in western India, preventing crime and punishing criminals. The town's name means'seven hills' in Marathi, the language spoken here.
People in this part of India are known for being generous and willing to help others, which is why it isn't surprising that most houses have at least one door. However, not all houses have keys, lock their doors, or even know how to open them when they come home. This is because almost every household has at least one child who has been asked by someone else to check up on them if they don't return after nightfall.
In conclusion, houses in India as well as everywhere else in the world usually contain two things: walls and windows. Walls can be used to protect what you want to hide from other people or to mark off separate rooms, while windows allow in light and give viewings of the outside world. Although doors can also be useful, they tend to be expensive and only find use in larger houses with many servants who can afford them.
The majority of the evidence for ancient Indian homes comes from ruins in this area. These residences were designed with comfort and security in mind. They were basic buildings clustered around a central common space. They had few windows and narrow entrances. Urban dwellings with a w... loading... in the Indus Valley, about 5,000 years ago.
Modern researchers have used mathematical models to try and work out how people lived in these houses. The results show that they could only accommodate four people at a time. This suggests that ancient Indians may not have been as comfortable living in large groups as we think today.
Here is some evidence for ancient Indian houses:
Excavations at Harappa in Pakistan have revealed hundreds of these dwellings built between 3500 and 3000 BC. They are made up of walls and floors surrounded by traces of burned wood and stone. There are no metals used in their construction which makes them easy to destroy.
At Gobekli Tepe in Turkey, archaeologists have found more than 100 temples dating back to about 9600 BC. Inside these temples, there are no images of gods but rather giant statues of men with their arms crossed. Researchers believe that these statues were used as calendars to help farmers grow crops at the right time of year.
People started making more elaborate houses about 4000 BC. These houses had bigger rooms and were located away from the village center.
The main entrance to a home, according to Vastu Shastra, is not just the entry point for the family, but also for energy. The main door, which is regarded as the "archway to triumph and progress in life," should face north, east, or north-east. It should be wide enough for cars to enter easily, and it should have two locks: one for inside use and another for outside use.
In addition, the floor above the main entrance should be flat so that people can walk up them without stairs. If there are steps going up, this could be seen as an insult by the Vastu Shastra experts, who believe that money and success should be earned through hard work and not through inheritance.
The main entrance should be the most attractive aspect of the home, so any improvements or alterations should be taken into account when selecting materials. For example, if the family uses incense to welcome guests, then wood or bamboo is recommended for the door because these materials are considered to be sacred by many Hindus. A stone wall around the property and a tree in the front yard further enhance the appearance of the home. These elements are all included in determining how good the home is with its architecture.
It is important to remember that the main entrance should be functional as well as decorative.
