I finally got to see everything you had posted. The colors in this one are amazing. But then again, you live in a very colorful place....
Tea plantations...right? But quite a hut. For living
or rather what is the story. I never seen during my traveling in Kerala and TN....Nice pic!
You may not have seen such huts because they are very few. Toda is a tribe that lives in the higher reaches of the Nilgiri Highlands. They have preserved a few of their original huts like this one here which is actually a shrine/temple. The deities here are the Pandavas of Mahabaratha.
this one is not a hut its a temple of that communities who are known as THODAS.
this temple is more than 1000 years old
there u can see a small way to get in.
they will open it only on fridays.
also u can see there some round stones.
one who wants to marry a girl of that community should weigh that stone on his shoulder.

My native is Ooty, Its so amazing to see the Toda hut on google earth.
My home is very close to this tribal community,
Me and my childhood friends use Toda community people's path way to reach
Toda people's community is at the edge of the Botanical garden and its a rear entry point
for us to get into the Botanical garden....
Those were wonderful day, when we pass by these community members residence peeping into their amazing home and chased by their dogs.....
Great days to remember....
just imagine sitting there, pondering in the peace and looking at the beautiful view...AH!...C
