A kuthla is a cylindrical granary used to store grains. It is made in various shapes and sizes. It was recorded in the same residence as the previous kothi. Smaller portion of grains required for the month are transferred into the kuthla from the kothi. It was raised up on stones to avoid moisture seeping into it, that would spoil the grains.
