Thursday Doors

Thursday Doors

All these doors I photographed at the weekend in Hauz Khas, a very old part of Delhi which was sacked by the Mongols in 1400AD. It has been gentrified and renovated. This makes a change from the usual wrecks of doors I post.

Here is the office door. Inside are bales of stuff wrapped in newspaper. Odd.

This is the tomb of Firoz Shah Tughlaq. Note the lack of a keystone in the door archway.

Modern glass door to a restaurant (“eating panorama”), guarded by Lord Shiva’s mount, Nandi the bull. Below are more modern doors with some illustrations.

  1. How lovely to see doors from Delhi. The last one with the peacocks is my fave. It’s so colorful. You’d never find a door like that here in Finland!
