  Lotus Mahal in Zenana Enclosure, Royal Centre
by Liatris1

A beautiful gem in otherwise ruined Zenana Enclosure. The archways and the balcony with the domed construction resemble a half opened lotus bud. Also is the lotus bud shape carved on to the center dome.

Zenana was the womens place, and I could picture the beautiful curtains that use to hang in the archways here at Lotus Mahal, in the glory days, and many beautiful women in colorful saries in the gardens around.

Also called Chitragani Mahal and Kamal Mahal.

Address: Inside the Zenana Enclosure, Royal Centre.
Directions: From Hampi bazaar you go/drive south to the Royal centre.
