Latticed Windows of Hawa Mahal in Jaipur City

Hawa Mahal (  "Palace of Winds" / “Palace of the Breeze” )

is designed in the form of the crown of the Hindu god Krishna.

Its five-story exterior also resembles the honeycomb of a beehive

with its small windows decorated with intricate lattice work. 

The intention was to allow royal ladies to observe everyday life without being seen

since they had to observe "purdah" ( face cover ).

The red and pink sandstone of the palace is particularly striking when viewed at sunrise.
