JAUHAR PITS : -  Mostly closed to visitors, these were basement pits ringed with a ramp. It was here that the women of the zenana and small children would leap to a fiery death in the event of their armies losing a battle, It was not unusual for thousands to commit jauhar at any point.

CHHATRI :  -  A cenotaph or memorial raised to a dead ruler or feudal chief

BAORI : Stepwell considered of great significance in this dry country and therefore embellished with ornamentation, Stepwells were mostly dug and build as acts of philanthrophy.

POL : Entrance or gateway Though defensive by nature, they were usually also decorated.
