a doorway, gate, or other entrance, especially a large and imposing one.
The historic French quarter of Pondichery (South India) is quite popular among tourists. And with good reason- the mix of old and new buildings showcase a melange of colonial and local architecture. During my most recent visit to the city, I went around walking through the streets photographing the colourful doors and gates to these buildings. Some of these doors are recent fashioned in the old style. Whereas others are truly old. Do you have any favourites?
