The most of the houses in the Southern India have a pyall constructed before their house. Pyall is said to be about two-and-half feet in height and three feet in breath. It is the first reception place of all visitors or strangers.
It is a tradition in South India to build a pyall in the exterior of every house so that any outsider cannot pollute the house and bring any misfortune. Thus any stranger before entering the house must stop near the pyall until his business and caste are known.
In the hot weather conditions the males of the family usually sleep on the pyall.
