The Zanana, or women’s quarters, in Samode Palace is an exquisite section showcasing intricate artistry and opulent decor designed for the royal women. Adorned with elaborate frescoes, delicate mirror work, and vibrant paintings, the Zanana reflects the refined tastes and lifestyle of the royal ladies.
