Not just any other door/window. It is possibly how/why King Kothi got its name.

A nobleman by the name Kamal Khan constructed the palace as his personal residence. And had engraved the initials K K on the doors, windows, and other furniture. The Nizam VII Mir Osman Ali Khan was impressed with the mansion, acquired it and declared it his Royal Residence. But it went against the Nizam’s pride to have the initials of some other nobleman at his Royal Residence, and it would involve lot of rework to replace the glass/furniture. He issued a farman declaring that the K K was now King Kothi meaning King’s Mansion. That is how the name King Kothi came to be.
