Window to another world

A blue sky in Delhi is a rarity, and I certainly hit the jackpot. Indo-Islamic architecture is something else, isn’t it? Pictured is the sandstone façade of an interior building within the Purana Qila (Old Fort) complex. The Medieval equivalent of a bay window (on the left) is capped with a half-chattri (umbrella, or in this case, awning). Above, drain spouts prevented seepage during the monsoon, and the windows and tiny vents (some, perhaps shaped like tiny arches?) let in summer breezes.
