Thursday Doors

Goodbye Old Delhi. Hello Chhatarpur Temple Complex in South Delhi. You can read more about my visit here last month in my blog. If the link doesn’t work, try this URL


Doors in polished wood or beaten silver, opulent and splendid.


I think these door are rather amusing with their pink nipples (or are they navels?). The bells/shower heads strung from the lintel are an interesting decoration.


These blue doors must be the biggest I have ever posted. Even larger than the Delhi Gate of the Red Fort. Look at the size of the lock. Inserting a key could pose problems. And I have no idea what is on the other side of the door.

  1. Oh my goodness Ian, you have truly outdone yourself this week. Each one is stunning for its own unique reasons and that last one is simply ginormous 😮
    Well done!

  2. They’re all so beautiful, and then WOW on those blue doors. Good gravy, looks like someone hung a handbag on the door! What a mystery!
