So here I am, taking part in another fun challenge – Thursday Doors featuring door lovers to post their favorite doors and post photos of the same. Come to think of it, a door signifies an entrance to a new beginning or grander things in life.
So for this challenge, I have picked out my five favorite doors – entrances to great historical monuments that I have visited and loved every part of it.
- Shaniwar Wada Pune
Shaniwar Wada is a historical fortification in the city of Pune in Maharashtra, India. Built in 1732, it was the seat of the Peshwas of the Maratha Empire.
- Pratapgarh Fort, Mahableshwar
Pratapgad literally ‘Valour Fort’ is a large fort located in Satara district, in the western Indian state of Maharashtra.
- Gateway of India, Mumbai
The Gateway of India is an arch monument built during the 20th century in Bombay, India. The monument was erected to commemorate the landing of King George V and Queen Mary at Apollo Bunder on their visit to India in 1911.
The Bhor Rajwada itself is a gorgeous building with large imposing pillars in its courtyard. Many rooms align along the square courtyard and there is an inner courtyard as well, perhaps for the family.
- Karla caves, Lonavala
The Karla Caves, Karli Caves, Karle Caves or Karla Cells, are a complex of ancient Buddhist Indian rock-cut caves at Karli near Lonavala, Maharashtra. The shrines were developed over the period – from the 2nd century BC to the 5th century AD.
Hope you would love visiting these places. Enjoy your day!
