Zenana Mahal, the erstwhile royal abode of Jodhpur queens, is an integral part of the majestic Mehrangarh Fort. In the yesteryears, nearly two-third area of the fort was reserved for the zenana(women). One of the prominent courts dedicated to the Jodhpur queens was the Moti Mahal Chowk, which displays architectural splendour of the bygone era. A number of jharokhas (windows) with jali screens and bangaldar eaves can be seen in the three wings of this court.

Within the fort premises, there is another zenana court towards the south, lying adjacent to the Moti Vilas. A large area towards the east of the aforementioned courts forms a major part of the Zenana Mahal. It covers the area surrounding Shringar Chowk, commonly known as the Coronation Courtyard. In the regal era, women used to watch proceedings conducted in Shringar Chowk through the facade of its upper storey.
