The Northern Thai Village หมู่บ้านไทยภาคเหนือ

The Northern Thai Village หมู่บ้านไทยภาคเหนือ
From the architectural point of view, the northern Thai house is distinguished from its coun ter part in the central region by the cross at the tip of the gables, known as Ga-Lae. Tra di tion al ly, the Ga-Lae are delicately carved with intricate motifs, unlike the plain triangular gables nor mal ly found in the villages of the central plain area. In the north, a house is normally roofed with small ceramic tiles. The windows are normally small in order to keep people warm during the winter.
