I love you the best

Better than all the rest

 

I love you the best

 

Better than all the rest

 

That I meet in the summer

 

Indian summer

 

That I meet in the summer

 

Indian summer

 

I love you the best

 

Better than all the rest

 

 

 

Song by Doors

 

 

 

what a nice coincidence! Here are some more Doors! 😀

 

 

 

 

 

Grand entry

 

Door with faux jharokas (window)

Entry way masquerading as a peacock

 
Ornate door in a soothing shade of green

A door as a door is supposed to be…strong!

And a beautiful entry to a humble abode

And when it comes to doors, you also think about…

 

Bolts

Locks

and maybe a sentry or two if you like hiding treasures…


This was a glimpse into some of the doors as seen in old palaces and forts in India…more towards North India. In upcoming posts, I will also cover doors from other parts of India 🙂

  1. Thanks for dropping by Sabiha 🙂
    These are from Rajasthan and old tombs/forts in Delhi.

  2. They are beautiful, were they taken in Rajasthan?

  3. awesome, awesome, awesome! U r the best bhavna! amazing song amazing doors amazing connect. Loved that lock! and against such an unusual clour too. And those Jaipur doors- one for each season- I could do a study and thesis on each of them separately- what brilliant designers those were- who wrought them with such love.

  4. 🙂 Glad you liked the post MA!

    I love both of them too Katie! 🙂

  5. What a great post! I love The Doors and your doors!

  6. Heart be still! These doors are evocative and soulful. I especially love the purple one with the intricate lock/latch.

  7. I agree Tara…how so ever well done, a reproduction does not have the ‘feel’ or the ‘experience’ of an original..

    Thanks Purple! Good to see you back 🙂

  8. Great images, wonderful doors, so beautiful and fascinating!!

  9. Oh what beautiful doors! I take photos of doors like this whenever I travel – they are so gorgeous and have survived such history! The modern reproductions just don’t have the same patina or look.
