The mud tiled roofs of Kodagu land have somehow captured my imagination. All the houses in this tropical paradise, whether big or small, have an unique aura about them and I guess it is these mud tiled roofs that contribute to that aura.
There are quite a few specialities of these mud tiles. First, they are environment friendly. Second, they are the most efficient form of roofing in this high rainfall terrain. And third, they are fairly inexpensive and are easily available.
And they are extremely appealing to the eye either when they are shiny and new or when they are covered with bright green moss.
