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.

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 Botanical Garden......

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....
