Kasbah Des Qudayas - Door Two - Yaseen Andrewsen

The breadth of the Garden is reached through the narrow door of humility.

- Abdul-Hakim Murad

This is part of an ongoing series by Yaseen Andrewsen the stops look at the beauty in the mundane. Doors are portals to something yet unknown.

Some doors that are well ornamented may may hide less beautiful secrets, while some simple doors may be the modest covering of the most enchanting of secrets; for others, the extended beauty is in line with the internal.

This particular door is in the historic kasbah of Udayah, overlooking the Bou River and the old city of Sale. It is adjacent to the magnificent garden of the kasbah. Through the years, it has been resilient and it whispers, through a window at the top, of the secrets it ho,ds but it does not boast its beauty louder than the garden it admires.
