  3. 3. Geography of Himachal Pradesh • Himachal Pradesh is spread over an area 55,673 km². It is bordered by Jammu and Kashmir on the north, Punjab on the southwest, Haryana on the south, Uttarakhand on the southeast and Tibet on the east. • Himachal is a mountainous region, rich in its natural resources. Elevation ranges from 450 meters to 6,500 meters above sea level. • The general physiographic divisions from south to north are:  1. The outer Himalayas (Shivaliks)  2. The lesser Himalayas (central zone)  3. The Great Himalayas (northern zone) • The Shivalik range consists of lower hills (elevation — 600 m above sea level). • The lesser Himalayas are spotted by a gradual elevation towards the Dhauladhar and the Pir Panjal ranges. • The Kangra valley is a longitudinal trough which is at the foot of the Dhauladhar range. • The Great Himalayan range (5,000 to 6,000 meters) runs along the eastern boundary and is slashed across by the Sutlej. • The Zaskar Range, the easternmost range, separates Kinnaur and Spiti from Tibet. It has peaks rising over an elevation up to 6,500 m. MOUNTAIN RANGES AROUND BEAS BASIN • The Shivalik range consists of lower hills (elevation — 600 m above sea level). The hills of the region are composed of highly unconsolidated deposits which results in a high rate of erosion and deforestation. • The lesser Himalayas are spotted by a gradual elevation towards the Dhauladhar and the Pir Panjal ranges. The rise is more rapid in the Shimla hills, to the south of which is the high peak of church — Chandni (3647 m). North of the river Sutlej, the rise is steady. • The Kangra valley is a longitudinal trough which is at the foot of the Dhauladhar range. Dhauladhar (which means the The White Peak) has a mean elevation of nearly 4,550 meters. It has a rapid rise of 3,600 m above the Kangra valley. Image. 1- Physical Map of HP
  4. 4. Nature of Soil and Minerals found in Himachal • Some of the common types of soil found in the state are Sedimentary, brown, as well as brownish grey soils. These soils are found in the agriculture rich districts of Una, Solan, Bilaspur, Hamirpur, Shimla, Kullu and Kangra. • The state has rich mineral resources spread across various districts and terrains. Some of the abundantly found mineral -ore include lead, slate, gypsum, mica, limestone, salt, clays and iron ore.

  7. 7. RIVER COURSE The river rises in the Himalayas in central Himachal Pradesh, India, and flows for some 470 kilometres (290 mi) to the Sutlej River in the Indian state of Punjab. • The river rises 4,361 metres (14,308 Ft.) above sea-level on the southern face of Rohtang Pass in Kullu . • Near Reh in Kangra District it divides into three channels, which reunite after passing Mirthal, 300 metres (980 Ft.) above sea-level. And then enters Punjab. BEAS RIVER IMPORTANT TRIBUTARIES OF RIVER BEAS • Awa River : Rises from the Dhauladhar range in the Kangra valley of Himachal Pradesh. It flows in a South-Westerly direction before joining the river Beas. • Banner River : It is also known as Baner Khad. It is a tributary of the Beas river and drains the central part of the Kangra valley. The Baner Khad rises as a small snow fed channel on the Southern slopes of the Dhauladhar range near Palampur. • Chakki River : It drains the South-Western part of Himachal Pradesh. The Chakki river rises as a small snow-fed and rain fed stream from the Southern slopes of the Dhauladhar range. The river enters Punjab near Pathankot and joins the Beas river. • Parbati River : It rises in the snowy Wastes upstream of Manikaran on the foothills of the main Himalayan range in Kullu district. The glacier which feeds this river descends down from the steep Southern slopes of the main Himalayas. It joins the river Beas at Shamshi in Kullu valley.

  11. 11. HISTORY OF MANALI Manali is an ancient territory of North India. The history of Manali goes back to the first century when it is believed to have been founded by Behangamani Pal of Tripura. The legendary tale says that the Thakurs (chiefs) of Spiti were harassing the residents who were anxious to avenge them. • Behangamani Pal initiated the revolt from Jagatsukh. With the help of a local astrologer and by the blessings of Goddess Hadimba they won the fight. • Since then the Goddess is called the `grandmother and the patron-deity' of the Kullu rulers. This led to the establishment of the Pal dynasty with Jagatsukh as its capital. The dynasty ruled over Kullu district for the next ten generations. • The capital was later shifted to Naggar and finally Kullu. Later the Thakurs and the Ranas slowly gained powers defeating the Pals. • Raja Jagat Singh captured the area from 1637-1672. A deep follower of Lord Rama, the Raja moved the famous idol of Raghunathji (Lord Rama) to a temple at Sultanpur (Kullu). The strange thing during his reign was that the king placed the God's idol on his throne and continued his rule. Since then, the kings of Kullu ruled the state in the name of Raghunathji. • Manali was ruled by Raja Sidh Singh in the 17th century. The Sikh rule continued until the 18th century, when the entire area was taken over by the British in 1846. • The residents of the area participated in the freedom struggle though not very aggressively. It was only post-independence that Manali was accessible easily by people of other cities. This long isolation actually helped the place to conserve its tradition and purity. • Manali has great mythological importance as the place was believed to be the abode of the Saptarishi (the seven renowned Sages). • It is said that the valley was inhabited by a tribe of hunters called the "Rakshas". • Later a few shepherds came from the Kangra Valley and started cultivation here. • The "naur" or the "nar" also lived in the valley. Mythological evidences say that the Pandavas also lived her during their secret exile. • Rishi Vyas also meditated in these valleys and the site is called the "Vyas Kund" It was this meditation that gave the Vipasha River the name `Seas River". • The Icing of Kalut (Kullu) fought against Arjuna in the battle of Mahabharata and was killed. Coins have been found from the area belonging to the king. Kullu and Manali were made a sub-division of Kangra District and Lahaul-Spiti was attached to Kullu for administration. In 1960 Lahaul-Spiti was a separate district. In 1963 Kullu was declared as a district of Punjab up to October 1966. On 1st November 1966, Kullu was moved from Punjab to Himachal Pradesh as a separate district with Kullu City as its district headquarters and Manali as a city. 1. Hidimba Devi Temple 2.

  12. 12. -KATH- KUNNI CONSTRUCTION • The design of buildings in this zone is influenced by the elements of snow fall, chilly winter and heavy rain fall. The building materials available in inaccessible areas are stone and wood. ln this zone, most better-class houses and even poor ones are built with stone and wood, without mortar. • The typical Himalayan house of this region consists of two or more stories with cattles in the ground floor, grains in the middle floor and dwelling in upper floor surrounded by a deep over hanging veranda which is used for various purposes such as living and storage of fuel wood and fodder. • The typical feature of vernacular architecture in this zone is the projection of upper floor. • The walls construction is done with stone and wood without mortar. • In this traditional Himalayan method of construction the wooden beams extend to the whole length of the wall, one beam on the outside and another on the inside, the space in between filled up with stone. • This type of construction is mainly found in the higher ranges of Kinnaur and Kullu districts of Himachal. 3. Views of Kath- Kunni Construction 1. Typical Kath- Kunni House • The walls are constructed of alternate layers of wood and stone. The wood battens 0.10-0.15 m thick extend beyond the wall length and interlock with the wood on perpendicular wall. • The wooden planks are interlocked by lap joint. Floors are made of wood not more than 2.10- 2.40 m high for better insulation. The upper floors project out of the stone wall with wooden balconies creating a sun space for sitting. Thus maximizes the heat gain. • This type of construction is earthquake resistant as the wooden battens form a framework which is well bonded and gives ductility to the otherwise rigid stone wall HOUSE ARCHITECTURE Images Source - Traditional and Vernacular buildings, (IJCEBS) Volume 1, Issue 4 (2013) Sandeep Sharma and Puneet Sharma 2.

  42. 42. CONSTRUCTION MATERIALs & METHODs IN KANGRA • The orientation of the buildings in this zone is mostly East and South. The slope of the land is from 0 to 30* approximately. • Materials available for construction are stone slabs for flooring and roofing, stone and earth for walls and wooden plank supports on wooden joists for intermediate floors. • A typical innovative technique for construction of earthen walls is use of a bottomless wooden box 0.60X0.90 m, with a height of 0.23 m in which earth is filled and rammed thus creating 0.23 m layer of rammed earth at every stage for the construction of a wall which is 0.60 m thick. • The another innovative techniques is the use of locally available slate stone which are used for sloping roof and are placed on heavy wooden supports with overlapping of 0.0254 - 0.0308 m. • These slates are not fixed to wooden supports but remain in place by weight only or sometimes they nailed to the wooden joists/rafters. The slope of roof is confined to maximum 22.5 degree. A. Traditionnel Construction Techniques - Mud Construction : • Mud construction is prevalent in Himachal in two types, • rammed earth conduction • sun dried mud brick construction. • Sun dried mud bricks are used in the Kangra region where good quality of mud is available from the river beds. • The walls are made of sun dried bricks about 0.60 – 0.90 Mt . thick plastered with mud phuska. • These walls are susceptible to erosion due to rain thus the buildings are raised over stone or plastered to avoid erosion. • The floors are made of wood plastered with mud enabling insulation (Fig. 2).
  43. 43. Mud Construction : B. Traditionnel Construction Techniques - Dry Stone Construction : • Dry stone construction is common in Kangra region where slate is in abundance (Fig.3). However this type of construction is also common in Kinnaur district where good quality stone can be quarried. • Different sized stones are placed over each other and compacted without the mortar. Through stones are used at regular intervals. • A stronger bond is achieved by interlocking the stone rather than adding smaller stones in gaps. Interior surface may be mud plastered. • The stone masonry structural walls take main lateral and gravity load. The walls uniformly distribute the load in both orthogonal directions.
  44. 44. Traditional Builders • Traditional Artisans are employed. There knowledge is transferred orally from master artisan to apprentice. Mostly people procure materials from their surroundings and build houses with the help of relatives and neighbors. This has fostered an empirical knowledge of construction material, tools and technology and all of these are reflected in traditional building techniques. 44 Planning Techniques • Factors that govern the planning are - climatic conditions, - cultural influences, - topography(heights), • More: orientation, traffic movement, available usable spaces, sources of water supply, natural drains and paths. Climate Influence • Due to the composite climate, The orientation of the houses should be such that, penetration of the sun rays max in winter & min. in summer. • The path of the sun, controls the height of building, as the sun is needed for each dwelling unit. • Small window size and low ceiling height to prevent heat loss and keep the interiors warmer. • Site susceptible to high winds, storms, floods and landslides should be avoided. • Roof in all around the building should have proper slope for efficient drainage, in heavy rain fall. Cultural influence • The house which constitutes many stores has been built for storage of grains which formed the back bone of the agrarian family. • Generally cow-shed and kitchen forms a separate unit. • The Indian calendar months of Baisakh, Poh, Magh and Phalgun are regarded as auspicious for the start of construction. • Ideally, the main aspect of the house should face east and the rising sun. • As a general rule the houses do not have a boundary wall.
  45. 45. Topography • Area falls in the region of high to very high seismic hazard. • Unlike plains, here a new dimension or a height variation to the ground poses additional problem. 45 Planning • Ground floor: Kitchen and Living area • First Floor: Generally Storage area. • Low Height of the rooms (2.1 – 2.5 m), keeps interiors warmer from heat released by individuals, also low surface to volume ratio reducing heat loss from surfaces. • Inner walls thickness is 6 inch and outer wall thickness is 12 inch(Adobe Bricks). Ground Floor Plan (Used as Living, Bedroom and Kitchen) First Floor Plan (Used as Storage Area)
  46. 46. Flooring • In the ground level mud & cow-dung were used for flooring above the plinth made of random rubble masonry. • The upper floors are made of timber planks and timber-joists and bamboo. 46 Roofing • Pitched roof with locally available timber. Slate used for roof covering. Below the roof a ceiling is constructed with timber. This attic is used as a storage space. • The light-weight roof construction and the air between the roofing and attic-floor provided a very good thermal insulation against the passage of heat. • Low pitched roof provides a good solution to drain off the rain-water from the dwellings. Masroor Rock Cut Temple : TEMPLES : • Within the Masroor Rock Cut Temple complex, there are 15 rock-cut temples in Indo-Aryan style and are richly carved. It is a unique monolithic structure in the sub-Himalayan region. • The main shrine contains three stone images of Rama, Lakshmana and Sita.
