Thanks to my recent trip to Rajasthan, which I started documenting Travel: Rajasthan Diaries, I can now participate in Thursday Doors. Rajasthan, a city in the North West of India, had lots of beautiful doors. It’s only natural considering it is a city of palaces and famous for its craftsmanship in woodwork. I know of friends who’ve come from abroad and taken an entire carved door back home to add a decorative item to their homes. Some have used the door to convert into a dining table by adding legs, and some have used it to create an illusion of a room beyond it by affixing it to the wall.
Here are a few pictures of doors that I took on the trip.
There is something so fascinating about palace doors- it’s not just the sturdiness of the doors and the size but that these doors open up to a world that is so different from that of the common man.
I’ll share the remaining pictures of doors I took, in subsequent posts. I hope you enjoyed seeing these beautiful doors from Jaipur, the ‘Pink’ city of India.
This post is for the Thursday Doors challenge.
