Hawa Mahal

Hawa (breeze) Mahal (Palace of the Winds) located in Jaipur city, Rajasthan. It has 953  windows facing towards the street outside the palace.Due to the circulation of breeze through these windows, the palace is kept cool in summer, hence the name. The high screen wall allows the women in the royal household to observe the street festivals while unseen from outside. It is best viewed early in the morning during sunrise with a golden light reflection on the palace. From the top of the palace, you can get great views of the old city of Jaipur.
