Things to see and do in Pachewar
Pachewar village has a lake which attracts many birds, cenotaphs, blue pottery kiln, metal toy makers and interesting surroundings.
It is a treat to go for a walk through the village, seeing some traditional artisans at work. Generally a guide from the fort accompanies you on these so that you get the best of the interaction with the villagers. Here, you will get to see the timeless skills of village craftsmen and watch people going about their daily lives.
The houses in Pachewar are mud-plastered and are decorated with white lime paste. Typically, there is a small, low entrance where one has to bend to enter. Inside is the informal courtyard which is the centre of the family activity. Every family has goats and livestock that freely roam around in the courtyard. Family elders may be relaxing on the low cotton woven cots, while women are busy at some work and the children run in and out of the home. This is the quintessential picture of a rural home in India.
You could also enjoy a cookery lesson in one of the local houses, and learn how to really make the most of Indian spices.
