Thimithi – The Fire-Walking Festival of Tamil Nadu!

Badal Mahal, Kumbhalgarh


Badal Mahal, also known as the 'Palace of Clouds' is located atop the Kumbhalgarh Fort. This palace has two storeys, and the whole building is divided into two interconnected segments called the Mardana Mahal and the Zanana Mahal. The rooms of these palaces are painted with pastel-coloured murals, representing the period of the 19th century. Turquoise, green and white are the main colours of the grandiose rooms.

Tourists can see stone jalis in the Zanana Mahal; these jalis were used by the queens to see the court proceedings. The creative air conditioning system of the chamber is a fascinating thing to see. The system is facilitated with a series of duct pipes which allows cool air into the beautiful rooms, further ventilating them from the bottom.
