decorated door of old house (india)

This was the beautiful old door of my hostel (Kedar Lodge) in the maze of tiny passages in the old city of Varanasi (India).­

The hostel was set in an old private house, with an inside courtyard and its own private water well.­ It was a good place to stay, run be a very nice family.­
