  1. That’s a great piece of information. I believe even in India Jharokha must have come from middle east because purdah concept was alien to India initially!

    1. Thanks Arvind. We can see lots of Jharokhas in Rajasthan. Hawa Mahal is a stunning marvel of architecture. Jharokhas are elements of Indo-Islamic architecture. Indo-Islamic architecture began with the Ghori’s occupation of India at the close of the 12th century. Jharokhas in Rajasthan have many Hindu ornamentations. The Hindu style of ornamentation is largely naturalistic showing human and animal forms and the luxuriant vegetation life.
