The Jharokha is a type of overhanging enclosed balcony used in Indian Architecture, typically Rajputana Architecture, Mughal Architecture, and Rajasthani Architecture. Jharokhas jutting forward from the wall plane could be used both for adding to the architectural beauty of the building itself or for a specific purpose. One of the most important functions it served was to allow women in purdah to see the events outside without being seen themselves. The projected Jharokha is an essential element of Rajasthani Architecture, both as decoration and as a viewing platform. The Jharokha increases protection from both the summer sun and monsoon rain. Jharokhas are mainly used in Palaces, Havelis and Temples.
