The takhat in this region are similar to the paata in terms of proportions and designs. The variation is in the local name of the furniture. This takhat was recorded in the fort at Kanvaliyas village, where it was placed on a raised plinth near the entrance. It was used by the caretakers to sit or sleep on.
