This historical architecture is prevalent in Ghizer for more than 500 years.
A raja named Sumalik used to live in Vershigone. He was exiled to Tajikistan due to some internal conflicts. Upon his return to the valley after completion of his exile period, he brought with him a carpenter Yasin Malik.
Yasin Malik was an expert carpenter. Seeing the existing architecture of the houses of people in Vershigone, he was determined to create ease and betterment for the locals. He introduced a new form of wooden structure that brought a credible change in the lives of the people. It was due to his efforts that this valley was named Yasin valley after him.
This wooden architecture still prevails in the region, and people construct their houses based on the four pillared structure.
