One of the interesting and unique items in the outdoor section is the typical stone building of Kothi- the dwelling complexes of Shimla, Himachal Pradesh. Another interesting house type from Uttrakhand is the Chokhat which is a towering four storied house with a roof of stone slates. The house is well known for its resistance quality. The imposing entrance gate known as Parol or Paraud has been constructed to protect and lend beauty to this open air exhibition. The process of developing this exhibition area is being continued with the addition of various other house types from the Himalayan region.
