Secret pathways in Qutb complex...?

Posted by
Sunder (Chennai, India) on 25 April 2011 in Architecture and Portfolio.

Last in this series...

These iron grills cover stone staircase leading somewhere. They were too dark to capture the steps in this photo.

It is well known that there have been hidden underground tunnels between castles and monuments to help escape in times of war.....

Not sure if these stairs lead to one such tunnel..May be it does..
( I must confess that there is no sign to that effect- its probably just my imagination working overtime - )

Ah, but isn't the imagination the best bit?! I love these places that might be this, or maybe that! It's the difference between reading a novel, and seeing the film....

Awesome capture of textures! Just finished reading "The Hangman's Daughter" and there were secret tunnels under the church in the story. This just brought the story to life.

A beautiful story is told by your words and wonderful photo. Lest we
make haste down the stairs, as our carriage awaits in the distance.

Looks like it would be one hard fall down those stairs if one wasn't watching where he/she was walking. Nice lighting and textures in the stone.
