This kothi was originally constructed as a granary and is now being used to store personal belongings. It was decorated using elaborate mud-relief work on its facade with motifs of Ganesha (a Hindu god), flowers and leaves. Old electric bulbs and compact discs were part of the accessories used for decoration.
