An entryway to the upper floor stands like a forgotten sentinel, its once grand purpose now surrendered to the passage of time. The walls, bathed in an ethereal dark blue, whisper tales of a vibrant past, their color deepening as it absorbs the scarcity of light. The fading hues imbue a sense of mystery and melancholy, reminding the viewer of the church’s dormant majesty.
