Hawa Mahal

Hawa Mahal, "Palace of Winds" or “Palace of the Breeze”, is a palace in Jaipur, India. It was built in 1799 by Maharaja Sawai Pratap Singh, and designed by Lal Chand Usta in the form of the crown of Krishna, the Hindu god. Its unique exterior is also akin to the honeycomb of the beehive with its 953 small windows called Jharokhas that are decorated with intricate lattice work.
