It is a city with a timeless quality to it, a city where the ancient and the modern coexist in complete harmony. The palace of winds “Hawa Mahal” is a remarkable structure which overlooks one of the main streets and also provides some excellent views of the city. In the not-too-distant past, ladies of the court found it convenient to watch the activities on the streets below without being observed themselves. Dedicated to lord Krishna, it is shaped like a crown, which adorns the lord’s head. It has over 900 ninches and is quite an unusual structure the likes of which are not to be found anywhere else.
