Photographer's Note

Palace of winds also known as the Hawa mahal or Palace of the breeze, is a high screen wall in Jaipur. In earlier times, the royal ladies were not allowed to give public appearances. The palace was built in 1799 to let the ladies of the court view the daily activities in the streets and the areas in the vicinity, without being noticed by anyone. Constructed of red and pink sandstone, the palace sits on the edge of the city palace, and extends to the zenana. Source : wiki
