Door in the wall

Very nice, isn't it? 'Hotel Bindu' is not easy to find. It primarily serves the armymen based in Fort St George - and I am not sure if it is still in business, it does look as though the door hasn't been opened for a long while.

The hotel has walls that are at least a couple of feet thick, especially the wall opposite this door. They have to be, because the hotel is set in the outer walls of Fort St George!

I love those stone walls! Must be cool to stay in a hotel that used to be a fort — a different experience, to say the least.

@ Hilda: Ah! Like Jacob, you've also been misled by the Indian use of the word 'Hotel' - more often than not, you will not be able to stay at such 'Hotels'; we use them only because it takes too much time to say 'Restaurants' :)
