This selection of doors features the surrounds, especially above the doors. All from Delhi, it goes without saying. The first door has a curious sedimentary rock surround, with faded garlands strung from a pole. The door is incidental, metal.
Homage to the Nehru/Gandhi dynasty. There is even a painting of the Sikh guard who murdered Indira. He is the bare-chested chap with a gun in the belt of his white trews.
Here’s a nice bit of carved stone, painted orange.
SKS India – for a clue look at the image on the top right.
I’d be happy if I went to a school with a powder blue door and a pink fancy stoop.
I honestly haven’t a clue about the decoration above this door in Old Delhi.
This doorway is very posh, with beautiful Mughal motifs around a pointed door.
Those of you who follow my normal (non-Door) blog will know that this sign is advertising the accoutrements of an Indian wedding. The fancy tiered light with coloured glass and the bedecked horse for the groom. The rider wouldn’t get down this alley.
Tailor and Drapper (sic) for both ladies and gents. The doorway doesn’t really inspire much confidence in the skills of the proprietor.
Unfortunately, the balcony/walkway outside the pale blue door has collapsed, leaving just the supporting ribs jutting out. There’s a fine old wreck of a door below.
And a beauty to end on. Elle’s beauty salon, in several shades of blue, with fancy plaster work picked out in gold and green. The open door gives a tantalising view into another door in a courtyard. I need another haircut, methinks.
