FriFotos theme: Windows of the World
Friday, September 14th, 2012

By Sudha Mathew

Inspired by this blog post by Sophie of Gabbingaway, I decided to do one too on my selection of windows (the real kind folks, not the virtual ones). They are from all my travels around India and the world. I have split them into historical monuments and heritage homes. After searching through all my albums for window shots, I felt like I had gone on a quick world trip. So here goes…

Windows in historical monuments

The Blue Mosque in Istanbul is such a peaceful and inclusive space.
Harem window at Topkapi Palace, Istanbul
Colourful windows flanked by intricate tiles at Topkapi Palace, Istanbul
The five levels at Panch Mahal built by Akbar for his queens at Fatehpur Sikri
The queen’s attendants used to sit by these windows at the Queen’s Bath, Hampi
Colour in Ladakh at Hemis monastery

Windows in heritage homes

Detailed carved wooden windows at Kollengode Kottaram in Palakkad
150 year old Syrian Christian house near Alleppey, Kerala
The closed windows of Olappamanna illam are mute witnesses to 300 years of history
A bicycle, the most popular transport in Pondicherry stands by a colourful window in the French Quarter
