TROPENMUSEUM

AMSTERDAM

A TRADITIONAL HOUSE OF THE SWAT VALLEY OF NORTH PAKISTAN

Houses in the Swat valley used to be built from
wood earth and stones. Nowadays concrete has
replaced the wood.

 

In the  North of Pakistan the houses are on the
slopes in the valleys. Natural stone and wood
were the most important building materials.
The wood has now been replaced by concrete.
The wooden chairs racks cupboards and boxes
are decorated with carving in which curls and
floral patterns dominate.
