An akhada is a gym for pehlwani, an Indian style of wrestling.

Traditional Indian wrestling isn't just a sport - it's an ancient subculture where wrestlers follow strict rules.

The sport is on the decline, but there are still many akhada left and some dedicated people who are working to keep this ancient part of Indian culture alive.
