Doors and windows from ancient towns have always fascinated me; not only for the aesthetic beauty but also the architecture style and cultural richness that they depict.
Some of my favourite doors of Varanasi
Click on the above to have a closer look at these wonderful doors in the lanes of Varanasi.
Riot of colours; my heart did a little dance when I compiled this post.
A traditional door with a more modern one in the right frame, each has its own charm.
To make sure this doesn’t become a humongous post, this is the only alternative I have. After all, four doors are better than one, no!!

Pretty interesting! The top 3 (as per me) are the last one with the bright yellow color; the one you clicked while on an auto ride and for sure the Nepali temple doors. Enjoyed going through the photo blog Shubham!
Those are my favourite too! Thanks for the appreciation. Big smile 🙂
Thanks for the share bro. Though I have been to Varanasi last time, I didn’t see even one of such wonderfully designed and intricate doors. It seems I have missed parts of that ancient town.
So so glad you liked them Sherab. You must go again and walk through these timeless lanes to experience the beauty. Best wishes – Shubham
you managed to find some hidden treasures as always.. Loved the pictures, they talk of the history which Varanasi is known for !!
Many many thanks for the continued appreciation. Varanasi is indeed a timeless place.
AH! This took me back. To the tiny lanes, to the crowded ghats, to the colours and the umpteen variety of doors<3 Planning to do a long pending post on Varanasi doors. Will tag yours when I do:) Also check out Nostalgichobos post on doors of Varanasi. She's done a fab one too!
