Rare sandstone panel used in Indo-Persian architecture as a caesura element for the zenani-dyodhī, the part of the house reserved for women of Islamic religion and culture. The friezes have been carved from a single block of stone, and feature a high quality, deeply engraved fretwork pattern on both sides. The decoration develops in a radiant fashion, which originates from the intricate decoration of full and empty spaces following one after the other, of square intaglios enclosed in octagonal elements which are perfectly inserted and connected between each other. The top of the jali features an arch emulating the mihrab.
