The king used to see his darbaar from this jharokha which faces a large courtyard. There is nothing great about it and can be easily avoided.

The big open balconies of Nahar Jharokha opens into a big courtyard. The guide says the public gathered in the courtyard and meet the king who is seated in the big open balconies which look like big french windows. The other theory is this is the king's hunting palace where from the lion / tiger are viewed from the balcony to hunt them. Whatever the history is fascinating and these structures stand witness to India's past history

Nahar means Lion in hindi.
Jharokha means window, so a window to see lion/ tiger for hunting purpose.
Adjacent to Hindola mahal

Nahar Jharokha is a balcony of a mahal near to Hindola Mahal used by the Sultan of Malwa to enable his subjects to see him . In those days an effigy of a tiger was supporting the balcony and hence it was called Nahar Jharokha .The courtyard of the building has a square water tank at the centre wlth the traces of a fountain . An aquaduct led the rooftop rain water to the tank . Wherever you go you would be impressed by the techniques of rain water harvesting used by our forefathers . They really valued water even though at that time the population was fraction of today’s population . In contrast we criminally waste water when our sisters are thirsting for even a drop of water .
