This ornamented palaindi had two pillars over which the arched top was constructed. It was recorded in the baithak of the residence which was converted into a space where the family made mudda. This palaindi was no longer in use. A floral bunting might have adorned the top when it was being used. In place of it, a pattern resembling the bunting was painted in red colour.
