Zenana Enclosure

, Hampi

Zenana Enclosure is part of Royal Enclosures
The Zenana Enclosure, or the women's quarters meant for solitude rather than protection, is an early form of high-walled relaxing places. It is said that the queen and king's companions lived here.

There are four significant structures inside the enclosure; the largest is Queen's Palace, which is in a ruined state present. Two buildings served as watch towers are placed in the north and south-east of this enclosure.

The architectural manner of these watch towers tells that these were used by the ladies for viewing proceedings occurring outside.

Lotus palace, a pretty monument located in this area, is supposed to be the Zenana Enclosure. The two-storied palace looks like a lotus and is assumed to be the meeting place for the royal women folks. Its architecture shows a display of Indian and Islamic influences.
