We live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty, charm and adventure. There is no end to the adventures we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open. -J. Nehru
Considered to be one the 7 wonders of India, visiting the Hawa Mahal or “Palace of the Winds” was the highlight of my trip to Jaipur. It was built in 1799, as a continuation on the palace. Nobody resided in these walls, but rather, the ladies of the royal court who practiced strict “purdah” (woman staying visually hidden from men) would relax here and be able to peek out through the 365 small windows and lattice work to observe daily city life, ceremonial processions, or even elephant fights.
