View of the colourful front facade of the Hawa Mahal 'Palace of Winds' in the centre of Badi Chaupar in Jaipur. It's front facade makes Hawa Mahal look more like a delicate screen than a palace. The five-story, pyramid-shaped structure has tier after tier of 953 small casements, each with tiny lattice worked (Jali), pink windows, small balconies and arched roofs with hanging cornices, exquisitely modeled and carved. These small windows circulate cool air (Hawa) even in hot months.
