Some readers requested to see the interior of the Mongolian yurt.
As indicated in my previous post, the inside is pretty basic.
It has a bed, a small table, an overhead lamp, no TV, a poorly furnished bathroom with cold water supply but didn’t seem to have facilities for shower, no windows but there was a ventilation opening protected from direct wind and sand – that’s about all.
The inside space was column free and I was wondering what holds up the roof.
The image shows many curved members meeting at a top carved timber ring – this is the meeting point or node where these members meet together. The walls and roof are supported off these curvilinear members.
Sorry that I do not have any more photos showing the interior, as I didn’t even consider it worthwhile taking any photos apart from the fantastic roof design!
