Photographer's Note

The houses of the water village are built close to each other and very often it is separated only by the walkway as seen in this shot. This is so because the early inhabitants only need to get the permission from the village headman to build their houses. Therefore, whatever available space is used to the maximum. The land does not belong to the house owners neither can it be sold.
Due to its close proximity to one another, a fire can cause extensive damage. This had happened many times due to the negligence of some house owners. It is said that the women folks never leave their gold and jewelleries in their house but instead wear it on their body. I am not sure if this is safe too!
