Pali Ghar: A Time Capsule of Simpler Times


In this day and age there it is hard to get a moment of respite. The air we breathe is thick with pollution, our thoughts are clouded with anxieties, and everything we do, we do for the rat race that is city life. A fantasy harbored by many is a wish to escape, escape to a place where they can breathe again, feel at peace again, and live in the moment. For the ones who’ve had enough of the daily grind and need a break, Pali Ghar is the answer.
