Certainly iconic, one of the must visit places in Jaipur is Hawa Mahal. Built in 1798, the five-storey building follows an enticing honeycomb pattern. There are 953 small lattice work windows here called jharokas and the palace is supposed to represent the crown of Lord Krishna. The interesting aspect about this palace is that the windows have been designed in such a way that there’s always a cool breeze gently wafting inside. The latticed windows had another function in the pink hued building. In the old days, when women were not meant to be seen, they could stand at the windows and look at the world outside but no one else could see them while they were inside.
