A Deeper Shade of Pink
A street child stands below the facade of Hawa Mahal, Jaipur’s famous ‘Palace of the Winds’. Built in the late 18th century to enable the women of the court to watch street processions without being seen, the palace’s distinctive, tapering facade contains nearly 600 screened windows and balconies overlooking the busy market street below.
Seen here when the early-morning sun rays first colour it a deeper shade of pink, Hawa Mahal is one of Rajasthan’s most iconic architectural sights.
