Must Do

Hawa Mahal  

Hawa Mahal is an incredible piece of architecture too and is one of Jaipur's iconic monuments. Made of pink sandstone, this five-storey structure is in the heart of Jaipur's main bazaar area. Its main attractions are the 953 jharokkhas (windows), which stack up like a pyramid, and were built to allow the women of the royal family to take a peek at the streets below without being seen. The windows are designed to let the breeze be distributed uniformly throughout the structure. Shamsher Singh
