AN OPENING IN ALL DIRECTIONS

Today is Eid and I wish all the readers across the world EID MUBARAK or literally translated Congratulations on the auspicious day of EID.

I was fortunate to take these pictures en route  to the Qutab Minar at Mehrauli, Delhi.

The Rhesus Macaques were playing with a door ( barrier)  which was strewn over the green lawns. Were they telling me something?

Barriers broken and the simians celebtrate

The pictures above and those that  follow are of a  Mosque  ( now forgotten and pushed aside )  from MEDIEVAL INDIA

( probably between 11th-14th Century).

You must pass through a Dome prior to entering the main area of the mosque.

This Dome has doorways opening in all directions. Is it a message to us from the past?

Each doorway reveals a different view.All the views are lovely are they not?

West

This doorway leads to the mosque which cam be viewed in the featured image.

South

Do notice the view changes but the arches of the  doorways are the same.

What is the message we are receiving from the past ?

Even after 1000 years  is it not more than relevant.

Do be liberal with your comments and opinions.
