Zenana Enclosure, Hampi Overview

Designed as an area for the Queen and her cohorts, the Zenana Enclosure was primarily the Women's Quarters as well. Constructed during the heights of the Vijayanagara Empire, the Zenana Enclosure has a medley of features and includes the Lotus Mahal, the Basement of the Queen's Palace, a water pavilion, and three guard towers that ensured that no male was allowed to enter the premises besides the king. There is some dispute regarding the true use of the enclosure as some archaeologists have posed that it may have been used as a place for the king's council to convene. It is located close to the Ranga Temple.
