Can windows be far behind…

The above is from the Abakh Khoja Tomb, Kashgar, that some consider the holiest Muslim site in the Xinjiang province. It is a beautiful glazed tile structure in jade green and blue.

The next picture is from the Id Kah Mosque. Kashgar again. Every friday, about 10,000 people come here to pray. It was a lovely quite oasis in the middle of a bustling marketplace. Thick walls separate it from all the noise, dust and heat. Tree lined pathways, and long carpeted corridors with dark green pillars.


The next window (on a door) is from the Hanging Temple in Datong. And the last window within a window from our hostel in a Beijing Hutong.
