Doors and Entries Of Northern India and Nepal


One day in August 2014, after much planning and arranging accommodation, train journeys and flights, etc., I arrived in India for the second time. I had decided to include a quick trip to Nepal to see the sun rise over Everest from Nagarkot, a short distance from Kathmandu, which at the time of planning, held little interest to me. How Kathmandu changed my mind! Some of the world’s most beautiful and interesting architectures are there, apart from the magnificence of the surrounding Himalayas. The majority of my stay was in India, especially Rajasthan, which must surely contain some of the world’s most glorious collection of forts and palaces and, of course, doors, which I found intriguing. I have always thought doors held romantic mystery and fascination along with a certain amount of curiosity. How many doors have we seen slightly ajar and tried to peer in? Having replaced my old camera with a reasonable one and a good mobile phone camera, I set off on my hot and sweaty peregrination into the depths of India. August and September are not the best months for travelling the subcontinent due to the heat and humidity at that time of year. I had, however, escaped the cold and wet of a Tasmanian winter. I clicked merrily along, covering a distance of then thousand kilometers and snapping over four thousand photographs, many of which I deleted on arriving back in Australia. As I was showing my photographs to a friend, it was suggested that I had beautiful pictures of doors—and why don’t I publish them? So here we have a collection of doors of India and Nepal that I hope you, dear reader, have as much pleasure in viewing as I had photographing them.
