This building is so pretty it almost looks edible. I notice it's behind a wall. Can you visit the building, or is it private?

Destitute Rebel said...

Petrea the building is part of a Sikh Gurdwara complex, access is only available to followers of the Sikh religion.

superbe architecture, cela me rappelle, les dessins d'Hergé dans les cigares du pharaons et le lotus bleu, dans lesquelles Tintin devient l'hôte du Maharadjah de Rawhajpoutalah
