Membership at this akhara is in the hundreds, but some wrestlers only attend practice occasionally. The pit is only big enough for a few wrestlers to train at one time.

Indeed a very inpiring collection. There are men and boys who are training on bare earth. No clutter of weights and no snobbish atmosphere of spa or gym but yet they have well built bodies. of which akhara the spaps are? its exact location? Run By?
