Jharokha

A Jharokha is a type of overhanging walled terrace used in Indian architecture, typically Rajputana architecture, Mughal architecture, and Rajasthani architecture. Jharokhas projecting frontward from the wall plane could be used for adding to the aesthetic magnificence of the building itself. One of the most important functions it served was to allow veiled women to see the events outside without being seen themselves. These pieces are a miniature version of the Architectural Jharokhas and can be used for framing traditional paintings or mirrors. By themselves, they make beautiful pieces of wall decor.
