Woman and her basket

A stroll in the afternoon


"Elaborate ancient woodcarvings decorate every door, window, beam, pillar... Houses are built with teak and red bricks, and they last hundreds of years. Nearly at every corner you could see carvings that amaze you. They still build houses the same way. Thanks to a German funded preservation project, the city maintains the same old beautiful look. Not many vehicles run on the streets. You can basically walk from one end of the city to the other end in 20 minutes."
