Ah, that is intriguing!!
Am not sure but is does look a bit like it
am not sure but it does looks like a fire place
A bit odd to have a open fireplace in Mumbai considering the monsoons.
These are the ruins of a centuries old fort and the roof has fallen off.
Not sure... Maybe. We still have those old fashioned kitchens in some houses in Kerala (like a chulha, but not exactly that). The structure looks similar.
quite possible that it could be kitchen...
Looks like a coal fireplace.
My vote goes for kitchen:)
Hari OMDefinitely for firing something - kitchen as good a purpose as any!!! YAM xx
yeh possibly but that huge window there would put the fire off instantly! Nice capture!
I'd say it probably needs a renovation. I mean, really, I don't even see a dishwasher!
What a beautiful capture and indeed something to wonder about but I figure the concept of a standing kitchen wasn't popular then. The arches indicate that they are short pillars supporting some kind of a podium. I'd imagine its simply a mounted platform to a lookout point or where the warriors stood and fired the cannon.Im following this thread, in case some historian does give us an answer! :)
They sure look like the 'chulhas' of olden times.
Are we talking ovens here? If it was in the States, I'd probably say urinals. Sorry.
It certainly looks like it.
