Die Zenana Absperrung blieb den Frauen des königlichen Hofes vorbehalten. Heute locken dessen Ruinen viele Touristen an. Der Harem im Inneren bestand aus einem zweistöckigem Pavillon der in pastellfarbenen Tönen bemalt war. Daneben gibt es noch den Palast der Königin, welcher den größten Palast in Hampi darstellte. Außerdem gibt es eine Art Badepavillon, welches das erste Gebäude ist, das man zu sehen bekommt wenn man die Zenana Anlage besucht. Am Rande des umzäunten Gebäudes stehen drei Wachtürme, die in einem indo-islamischen Stil erbaut sind. Auffallend ist auch, das die königliche Schatzkammer im Inneren des Zenana Anwesens liegt.
