The concept of Jali Sutra
‘Jali’ is the term for perforated stone or latticed screen, usually with an ornamental pattern. It was constructed by carving into stone and applied in Indian and middle eastern architecture. ‘Jali’, casting long decorative shadows on walls and the floors, helped in lowering the temperature by tempering sunlight and compressing air through the holes, and to reduce visibility from outside. ‘Sutra’ is a sacred thread or teaching or execution of a ritual.
