Old Muslim Neighbourhood in North India.

An example of the architecture and layout of homes in centuries old Muslim neighbourhoods in North India. It consisted of an open courtyard with a few fruit trees bounded by verandah and rooms on several sides. It was connected to another building with a similar layout where guests were received. Access to them came from a pedestrian lane called “gali”. The lanes were connected to a collector road (sarak). This layout in one form or other exists from India to North Africa. The layout of homes in old neighbourhoods in China was similar, However, the architectural details were different.
