Narrative:
Bangar is a village located in the Pauri Garhwal district of Uttarakhand. It has a total population of about 280 people wherein 60% of it is dominated by the women of the village. This village, located on the banks of River Nayar, is almost 700-900 years old. Most of the villagers are involved in
agriculture and defence as their core occupation.
It is a very old settlement with a rich cultural heritage. The settlement started at the age of the kings and continued to survive till date due to their rich cultural and traditional practices. The local Garhwali style of architecture is adopted in all their structures. In spite of the advent of urbanisation and modernisation, they still continue to use the traditional old materials and methods of construction keeping the traditional architecture intact. However, due to lack of services and opportunities, migration has become a major issue resulting in the gradual shrinking of the village.

The settlements are homogeneous and it is this single tie which holds the entire village together.
Bangar is the only village in the Garhwal district which is located in the valley. Over the years, there has been geographical and historical evolution in house planning as well as in street planning. There has also been unique construction and intricate detailing done, which have been documented and studied in detail.
