Hawa Mahal, Palace of Wind in Jaipur

Hawa Mahal - Jaipur

Hawa Mahal - Jaipur

Hawa Mahal (Palace of Winds) is the iconic palace symbolizing Jaipur. Was build by Sawai Pratap Singh. The facade seen here, was used by the royal ladies so that they can have a look outside without being seen thought the numerous small windows (close to 1000 windows). It gets its name because these windows allow enough air to flow though and keep the palace cool.

 

Stood really close to the facade and raised my camera to almost 80 degree to click this.
