Maha Vaasala

Through these doors many noble men have walked in , with pride that they are one of the very few privileged to walk in. They come as mortal gods with their retinue up to the door of the Maha Vaasala. But through the door they enter alone. With their heads bowed in respect. But what they really felt, they only knew.

They came to choose kings. They came to pay their last respects to dead rulers. They came when they were summoned, to be punished .

Inside sat the mortal God , often wandering what actually went on, beyond the doors.
