UTT  Village Homestay near Jageshwar Dham

Mountains and nature always fascinated me, as if they were a part of me. Brought up in the City, I was always drawn to nature and villages. Traveling to many places, it was an amazing moment when I finally decided to settle down in our Village Kunja Guth near Jageshwar Dham, I was astonished by its beauty and that was the time that village became mine forever. 
Settling down and getting used to the village environment, there were many ideas that came to my mind. One of which was the amazing, rare and unmodified village homes with their immense architectural beauty.
Traditional houses seem very rare in the villages. Almost all houses have been renovated and old architecture rich homes seem to be modernised in full. The old dwellings are very few. With the thought to protect those rare architectural masterpieces, we planned to form Village Homestay in them where people can see the rare beauty of the old village homes of Uttarakhand which are slowly and completely being modernised by people.
Our vintage home with traditional architecture was something we thought everyone should see. Thus we planned to make it a traditional homestay with only required modifications. Everything is pure and Original, which adds immense beauty to our Homestay.
Uttarakhand Travel Tourism brings you UTT Village Homestay and it is the most amazing homestay of all time giving special attention to the old and traditional architecture, keeping them as it is with no modification or minimum required modifications. 
Our homestay will bring you to proper village life where you can experience the actual village-style food, living, and traditions near Jageshwar Dham in Almora. Uttarakhand Travel Tourism homestays provide meaning to what actual village homestays are.

Beauty of UTT Village Homestay

Though it’s impossible to describe the beauty of this homestay in words but still trying my best to convey the most amazing place to you through my words. Describes every part of its traditional architectural beauty and some very old forms of designs that are very rare. The Rest of the beauty can only be felt, so we have handcrafted an amazing range of Jageshwar Packages for you which includes:
Most of the traditional houses of Uttarakhand Villages are identically designed and made of Stone Walls, Mud Floors, Slate/Wooden roofs, and Storerooms known as Bhad and Patangan( Courtyard of flat stones). There are mainly 4 rooms in every home containing one living room, one-bedroom, and a kitchen. The 4th room was made in the basement for cattle along with many other domestic animals helping as a source of mundane lifestyles and food.

Living Room Architecture of Kumaoni Homes


The traditional Kumaon home contains a small living room with an entry door beautifully carved with the wooden architecture of that time. Most doors and windows are painted blue in hilly areas of Uttarakhand, the reason is not quite specified but it is believed color, which plays a major part in traditional user’s awareness and is an important aspect of traditional architecture, is connected to the community, understanding, vision, and convictions. 
The blue colour of traditional homes indicates that they have not only aesthetic appeal but have political, moral or therapeutic qualities too.  In general, cool colours are said to indicate serenity, harmony, devotion, and other gentle trials owned by citizens. The use of color may mean that the inhabitants are peaceful people. 
Right next to the door is the masterpiece of these houses and my favourite part is the window (Dhei). The Window consists of the amazing architecture of wooden carvings. The External part of the window is beautifully carved with designs. When you sit inside and view the amazing scenery from the window, it feels like heaven.
The upper part of the window is the temple-like architecture of hilly areas with cone-shaped window locks made of wood and are very efficient. Just below the window is a flat wooden bench which was made to enjoy the weather and scenery from inside the house and to just sit & chill.
Just after entering the living room, there is another masterpiece of wooden art which is the Almirah, which is now converted into Mini-Library.

Let’s come to the last but not the least part of the living room which is known as “Blank”, which displays such an amazing piece of art. This masterpiece is beautifully carved and designed when viewed from the external part of the home, from inside this particular piece had a very important role to play.
When you see this piece from inside the home, it is a square/rectangular hollow area built to keep the lighting facility available at that time which is known as lamphun (Lamp) as electricity was not available to villagers at that time and back then they used to survive on this lamp. This piece is so beautifully built that when you put a lamp inside it, the whole room lightens up.

Bedroom Architecture of Kumaoni Homes

So the bedroom is exactly the same compared to the living room but can also differ as per the family size. The Bedroom consists of 2-3 “Blanks and  1 open Almirah carved in the stone walls of the house. Almira was mostly made for the purpose to build a temple place in it or putting some handy items. 
In the upper section of the home, there is a big storeroom known as “Baad” which is a hollow space made above the roof of the first room(Living room). Baad is used to store all the extra and sometimes important useful items in it.
There is also a phrase in Kumaoni culture, whenever we are fed up with something or people, we say “ Bhaad mai ja” which means “Go with the leftover things”. It’s funny I often used this phrase but it was later in my life in my 20s when I really understood the meaning of it ……hahaha.
The Roof of the house is made from huge wooden logs and stone slates. Nowadays people are using tin roofs to protect their houses from major harm from natural calamities. 

Kitchen Architecture of Kumaoni Homes

The Kitchen is the gossiping ground for ladies with so much work to do and a little time to chit-chat while cooking. The Kitchen comprises one big fireplace, which was used to cook food and sit around in heavy snowfall seasons in winter. The fireplace architecture is pentagon-shaped painted with mud. The chimney follows outside the house providing proper evacuation. 

Courtyard Architecture of Kumaoni Homes


The house tour does not end here but more exciting things are yet to arrive. Outside the house is one big courtyard (Patangan) and the reason that it is so big  is that people used to tie their cattle in this place. This one thing has not changed yet and you will see every house is pampering their cattle in the courtyard from bathing to feeding, every act is performed here. 
The Courtyard is made up of flat stones with a boundary surrounding it and the same boundary can be used for the sitting/ relaxing purpose also. The view of the mountains is breathtaking with all the homegrown and organic fruits, vegetables, grains, Etc. 

Garden Area to Meditate Under This Tree


This was the only part where we are enhancing the whole look of the front-end garden for our customers. The garden is beautifully enhanced with few stone chairs and tables with beautiful flowers and trees around it. We have one very holy tree just like the Bodhi tree but not the same. This is the main attraction of our garden, where you can sit just below the tree and meditate for hours alone.
The garden is facilitated with special dinner arrangements like Candle light dinner, Romantic dinner Etc. You can just sit in the garden area alone or with friends and can chill around with the amazing mountain views just in front of the garden area. People can also enjoy seasonal fruits in our gardens like Sweet Lime, Apricot, Plums, Walnuts Etc.
