I love you the best

Better than all the rest

I love you the best

Better than all the rest

That I meet in the summer

Indian summer

That I meet in the summer

Indian summer

I love you the best

Better than all the rest

Song by Doors

what a nice coincidence! Here are some more Doors! :-D

Grand entry

Door with faux jharokas (window)

Entry way masquerading as a peacock
Ornate door in a soothing shade of green

A door as a door is supposed to be...strong!

And a beautiful entry to a humble abode

And when it comes to doors, you also think about...



and maybe a sentry or two if you like hiding treasures...

This was a glimpse into some of the doors as seen in old palaces and forts in India...more towards North India. In upcoming posts, I will also cover doors from other parts of India :-)

STUNNING! They would make a wonderful framed series. Simply inspiring!

melissa @ the inspired room said...

Those are gorgeous, simply beautiful doors!

Bhavna said...

Thanks Patricia! I would actually love to try a DIY with a wooden chest of drawers...maybe with suzani fabric :-)

Glad you liked the intro Robyn...I was in a mood to be a bit cheeky

Bhavna said...

Hello Gillian! Isn't the lock just fascinating!? :-)

Thanks Kate!...you might remember similar doors from your stay in Asia!

Bhavna said...

Thanks Affinity :)

Thats a super idea Amber...I did not think of using these images in a framed series! Thanks!

Bhavna said...

Yes, 'gorgeous' describes these doors Melissa :-) Glad you liked them!

Oh what beautiful doors! I take photos of doors like this whenever I travel - they are so gorgeous and have survived such history! The modern reproductions just don't have the same patina or look.

purple said...

Great images, wonderful doors, so beautiful and fascinating!!

Bhavna said...

I agree Tara...how so ever well done, a reproduction does not have the 'feel' or the 'experience' of an original..

Thanks Purple! Good to see you back :-)

Mary Ann said...

Heart be still! These doors are evocative and soulful. I especially love the purple one with the intricate lock/latch.

katiedid said...

Bhavna said...

I love both of them too Katie! :)

vineeta said...

awesome, awesome, awesome! U r the best bhavna! amazing song amazing doors amazing connect. Loved that lock! and against such an unusual clour too. And those Jaipur doors- one for each season- I could do a study and thesis on each of them separately- what brilliant designers those were- who wrought them with such love.

Sabiha said...

These are from Rajasthan and old tombs/forts in Delhi.
