The ornate decorations that frame the door on the top, as well as the arches seem to have no significance for the people who stay in the premises as it is obvious from the string that this space is used to hang clothes.

Architecture · Doors · Heritage · Monument

A common sight with respect to Heritage Buildings in the city. I will leave you to try figure out which building this is. Hint : There is enough evidence of European influence(hence it could be from the Asaf Jahi era)

K K

Not just any other door/window. It is possibly how/why King Kothi got its name.

A nobleman by the name Kamal Khan constructed the palace as his personal residence. And had engraved the initials K K on the doors, windows, and other furniture. The Nizam VII Mir Osman Ali Khan was impressed with the mansion, acquired it and declared it his Royal Residence. But it went against the Nizam’s pride to have the initials of some other nobleman at his Royal Residence, and it would involve lot of rework to replace the glass/furniture. He issued a farman declaring that the K K was now King Kothi meaning King’s Mansion. That is how the name King Kothi came to be.

‘Tis but an hour ago since it was nine, and after one hour more twill be eleven. And so from hour to hour we ripe and ripe, and then from hour to hour we rot and rot. and thereby hangs a tale. – William Shakespeare
