Jaipur is the Capital and largest city of Rajasthan.

It draws lot of tourists from all over the world. Hawa Mahal or ”Palace of Breeze” in the center of the city is a great attraction. This imposing structure was built by Sawai Pratap Singh in 1788.

The women of the royal family never appeared in public and this  palace structure was constructed to give them an opportunity to enjoy and view the day to day life/scenes through the windows . The Hawa Mahal has 5 floors 953 windows known as Jharokhas .

An amazing structure..do not miss if you ever wish to visit Jaipur. This is the face of Jaipur I would say.
