A jali (or jaali) is the term for a perforated stone or lattice screen, usually with an ornamental pattern constructed through the use of calligraphy and geometry. Early work was performed by carving into stone, while the later more elegant used by the Mughals employed the technique of inlay, using marble and semi-precious stones.

This architectural decoration was used in Islamic architecture as well as in Indian architecture.
