  • 2. INTRODUCTION A term used to categorize methods of construction which use locally available resources and traditions to address local needs. We see that vernacular architecture in India’s diverse regions has evolved a unique way of responding to the climate and the environment that is sustainable, shows an intelligent approach to the problems of climate and is a delicate balance of social and cultural factors through spatial vocabulary such as walls, courtyards, floors and semi-private and private spaces. Climate, of course is a predominant factor in determining the forms of vernacular architecture in India.
  • 3. NAGALAND One of India's most colourful states is Nagaland, located on the eastern margin of the Himalayan range in Northeast India.
  • 4. Nagas have a hoary past, which is reflected in the village patterns, locales and house constructions.
  • 5. Nagas are hill dwellers and their settlements are highly inaccessible as they are located on hill slopes or the highest possible points along a hill slope.
  • 6. Climate was yet another factor which influenced Naga settlement pattern. Below 500 m the climate is hot and unhealthy; Above 1500 m it is unpleasant – cold in winter, And during monsoon, cloud is perpetual. Abundant springs are infrequent above 1500 m and water tends to be scare. Due to these climatic factors most of the Naga villages are located along the hill slope.
  • 7. TYPICAL NAGA HOUSE A typical Naga house is an elongated rectangular plan, a short length forming the side . A few tribes built in circular shapes as well. The houses traditionally faces eastern direction.
