Zanzibar door


The mystery of Zanzibar. In Stonetown, the ancient hand-carved doors are numbered and protected as they get restored over the years. Numbering almost 1000, the doors are wide in variety, beauty, and intricacy. The spikes were to subvert the elephants that were used during the wars to ram the doors.
