MINIMUM (RITUAL) CITY

The city arrives through stark landscape of mountain range from distance and large reservoir. The stark landscape of rock formation makes city fabric far more humble and humane. The entire city is walk-able and it maintains its minimum infrastructure. The formation of bazaar within its main spine is distinguishable form many other similar ritual cities. The recent development of new, generic building types & enterprises are marginally visible. The homogeneous facade and perforated interior spaces still have charm of carefully preserved spatial value. 

It is one of the most sacred city of India with wonderful rock formation as arrival feature to the town, abundant water resources adds to its character. The belief to attain salvation as per mythology from the depleted deteriorating fabric,  type & characteristic of ritual city, are perhaps another reality of such minimum city.
