Jahaz means ship, Hawai Jahaz means plane, Hawai adda means airport.

Situated between two artificial lakes in Mandu Madhya Pradesh, Jahaz Mahal is a two storied architectural marvel and is so named as it appears as a ship floating in water. Built by Sultan Ghiyas-ud-din-Khalji, it served as a harem for the sultan. This is The Water Palace shown in Fisher’s Drawing Room Scrap Book, 1832 together with a poetical illustration by Letitia Elizabeth Landon.
