Gates of Sheki...

This is a picture of the gates of Sheki Caravanserai that I mentioned earlier in my blog.
The gates are wooden and can be opened if for example horses must enter...the open part that you see in the middle of the gates is actually the door to be used to enter and leave

This style for gates is still used in Sheki but now usually the actual door part of the gates is made bigger, wider and higher for comfortable use.

Excuse me for the quality of the photo...

This is an interesting post. I enjoyed reading it and looking at your photograph.

If you have not seen a big ant then it might be worth seeing my post this morning.
