Ganderbal (Jammu and Kashmir) [India], October 13 (ANI): Aligning with the history and heritage of Jammu and Kashmir, the youth are now venturing into new business models while also keeping up with the traditional businesses in the valley, according to a report.

According to the report, these houses are made of mud from the outside, and they are equipped with all the facilities of a hotel from the inside.
Ahmed said that he has built three mud houses and that he has had the idea of doing so for a long time, a thought that would connect him with his roots.
These mid-houses give a sense of old-style living along with the ambience, while the modern facilities in the interior do not create any difficulties for tourists, the report said.


Highlighting Kashmir's "simple and unique" lifestyle, he said that the houses were made of mud in ancient times and people were using traditional earthenware for various purposes, however, in modern times, there have been a lot of changes in the way of life of the people.
