Question:

Why do the houses in Rajasthan have thick walls and flat roofs?

Answer:

For being a desert area, Rajasthan weather is very hot with less rainfall. Here, in winter, the temperature remains very low while in summer, the temperature remains very high. Thick walls insulate the whole house against the heat in summers and extreme cold in winters. Flat roofs are constructed for protection from dust storms. These roofs are easy to construct because there is not much rainfall so these rooftops help in collecting water.
