Originally designed to be a multi-structure campus, the Rajkumari Ratnavati School serves hundreds of girls below the poverty line, equipping them with tools for education and independence.

Constructed with hand-cut local sandstone in the shape of an oval, the building’s form reflects the curvilinear shapes of the local forts, as well as symbols of female strength.
