When we visited Jaipur Pink City last time, our schedule didn't allow us to visit Hawa Mahal, but this time we made sure it is on our list.
Hawa Mahal is an architectural marvel, you will be in awe after witnessing the beauty and engineering of the palace.
The structure was built in 1799 by Maharaja Sawai Pratap Singh. It was designed by Lal Chand Ustad in the form of the crown of Krishna, the Hindu god.
Its unique five-story exterior is akin to the honeycomb of a beehive with its 953 small windows called jharokhas
The original intention of the lattice was to allow royal ladies to observe everyday life in the street below without being seen since they had to obey strict "purdah" (face cover).
Windows (Jharokha) has colorful panes so it will light the hallways with different colors.
