This hut is typical of that which would be used by a Kulumbi family, hailing from the Goan hinterland. The Kulumbi people are an agricultural community. They are not only renowned for their strict adherence to their age-old traditions and customs but also their sweet nature and simplicity. The huts of the Kulumbi are mud-walled and roofed with terracotta tiles.
The living quarters of the Kulumbi hut are situated in a central core, which is circumnavigated by the core from the outside world, thereby keeping the living area within very cool and airy.
