Mosque Green Door

By nonur  
Another image of a door. It was taken in Karaman, a city to the South of Konya. It has been processed today before uploading. The colour green, as you might well know, is considered to be holy in Islamic countries. It is generally the colour of the paint used in mosques, on vehicles conveying funerals, coffin covering palls, prayer rugs, even on the flags of some Islamic countries, etc. Some people call this particular tone of the green colour used on this door 'the mosque green', as it is the very tone of green that is accepted as holy.

Thank you for seeing, and thank you all for the clicks and kind comments on my previous image. I am especially thankful to Steven, Billy and Peter for their generous awards. All are much valued and appreciated.
