Sukh Mandir : Amber Fort
The Sukh Mandir palace was kept cool in the summer by covering its arched openings with screens woven with the roots of the aromatic grass called khas. The screens were moistened periodically with water, air passing through the screens was thus cooled, and carried also the fragrance of the grass into the palace-chambers.
In front of the sheesh mahal is a parterred little garden in the classic mughal pattern called char-bagh or four gardens. Facing the sheesh mahal is sukh-Niwas (pleasure palace), the raja’s private apartments where he retired to rest.
