This is the original from that of the previous page. I think i pushed that one a bit too far.
This window comes from a building in the Shalimar Gardens in Srinagar, Kashmir. It is a relic from the Moghul Empire, dating back before 16th Century. I should check the dates though. The gardens were surprisingly English/European. Formal and with familiar plants. It was only the buildings that were Exotic.
Salman Rushdie wrote a book called Shalimar the Clown. That story, which i haven't read is based in Srinagar, I understand. I started to read it but i wasn't in the right mood to keep on with it. I hope to try again some day.
