The Impressive Architecture - Hawa Mahal
In Jaipur, the facades seem to have become as ornate as the interiors and sometimes, as in the case of the Hawa Mahal, Even more so. The Hawa Mahal, part of the Jaipur city palace complex is a familiar landmark, and is ties of pierced windows overlooking the street below.

In fact, the façade pretty much characterises what for, on the inside the building is no more than a series of corridors with windows overlooking the street. Its purpose was simply to allow the royal women a view of ceremonial processions while seated behind the small windows. Allowing them to look out without themselves being seen.

Famous for it's beehive like structure, the Hava Mahal is interplay of red and pink sand stone, carefully and painstakingly outlined with white borders and motifs. The palaces and forts of yesteryears, which were witness to the royal processions and splendours are now living monuments, accepted quite naturally into the lifestyle of the people of Jaipur.
