Here are some more pictures of doors from my Rajasthan visit. The city is a door lover’s delight. Carved or not, king’s or common man’s – every door in the place is a work of art and can make anybody turn into a photographer.
A door at Hawa Mahal (Wind Palace) in Jaipur. There is something so beautiful about this door though it does need upkeep.
The doors at the forts are wooden doors encased in metal and have elaborately carved arched doorways. The entrance doors to the forts had metal spikes to prevent elephants from ramming into them during wars.

Thanks for this beautiful tour, Smitha. I particularly like the Hawa Mahal door for the scalloped edges around the top, plus the color combination. You are right — all of them are art. Hugs on the wing.
These are exquisite doors, Smitha! Thank you for checking out my blog post. I’m glad to have found you and learned that you’ve moved to India and you’ve published a poetry book with a blogging friend. I worked in a bank for three months as a summer job. It was when we counted the pennies by hand at the end of the day to balance my tray!! I was off by a little on one day and recounted the pennies t reconcile with the deposit slips! 🙂
Glad to have reconnected,Miriam🙂. We were in touch earlier…when I was in Dubai,prior to 2018. Then, I guess,I lost touch. Hope to stay connected, henceforth.
Lol…thank you for sharing your experience in the bank. You got me smiling. Reconciling can be so hard especially at the end of the day,when all you want to do, is go home.
Have a wonderful day!
How stunningly gorgeous and unique these doors are, Smitha! What a priceless heritage of architecture and art! Thank you so much for posting these lovely photos! ❤ I will never have the opportunity to visit India, so I appreciate seeing your photos very much. 🙂
Dear Cheryl, it makes me happy you could see Rajasthan through my eyes. If you check my previous posts, you’ll get to see some videos I’ve added. They’ll make you feel you’re right there🙂. I’m suggesting it since you said you don’t think you would ever have the opportunity of visiting❤. Rajasthan’s architecture and vibe is unique.
Thank you for your appreciation of the post. It means a lot.
Wow! Checking these out was so interesting and they’re so beautiful. Thank you for sharing. I have been a bit intermittent at Thursday Doors for awhile and I had forgotten the joy of going from country to country and exploring other cultures through the medium of the door. I live in Sydney, but have been doing some traveling through Ireland lately via Google Earth and ended up in the small village of Carriagaholt, I’ve shared some photos of the doors but go into more detail in the previous post which includes links to Irish music played there.
I have largely been in covid lockdown due to my health since June last year but am still able to get out into nature.
Hope you have a good week.
Thank you, Rowena for visiting. It’s wonderful that we can travel and see all the beauty this world has to offer without hopping on a flight, thanks to Google and the rest of social media. ‘Ended up in the small village of Carriagaholt’ – that sounds perfect. It’s made me curious. I’ll hop over to your post and check out the doors there.
I’m glad you’re feeling better now. Do take care.
