This is a passaga way inside BhulBhulaiya, in Lucknow, India. Bhulbhulayia was built in the 18th century by the Nawabs (kings) of Lucknow. 45 steps of stairs lead to this place, where at each corner there are 3 identical doors, one door is the right path, the other two may lead one to his/her death if the person cannot find her/his way out of the maze. This is a place full of corridors and hidden doors and walls through which whispers of people who are whispering hundreds of feet away can be heard ! There is also a tunnel used in old times which connects Delhi, Agra and Calcutta. Now it has been closed after it claimed the lives of many who entered it and then could not find their way out. All these were built during British invasion of Lucknow.
This picture is of one such corridoor with a door at the end....

Interesting..well seen and good presentation..Like how the sunlight pours through the walls of the corridors
Maybe the light could have been managed well to give a mystic affect..as the content is fairly simple with minimal elements
Good one anyway
