Knockers for Male and Female - Kish, Azerbaijan

In the village of Kish, just outside of Shaki, doors are traditionally equipped with two knockers - a larger one for male visitors and a smaller one for female visitors. This apparently allows the hosts to know who is coming and who should answer the door. ..When we asked what happens when a female uses the male knocker, the woman looked at us incomprehensibly, like that could never happen. Guess Kish isn't into practical jokes... Read about our visit to Shaki.
