Because of the harsh climate of Rajasthan.
- It has thick walls in order to keep the house cool. Thick walls stops the heat entering inside the house somewhere in between them and so the house remains cold.
- Houses do have flat roofs because there is less or no rainfaal in that area and people sprinkle water above their roofs so that when it dries it takes the latent heat with it leaving behind a cooling effect.
houses have flat roofs to prevent direct sunlight, does not have slanting roof because water can't be collected in dry area but it is flat so that water can be sprinkled to give cooling effect.
