HAWA MAHAL ( Palace of Winds or Palace of the Breeze )
is a palace in Jaipur, Rajasthan, India, so named because
it was essentially a high screen wall built so the women
of the royal household could observe street festivals
while unseen from the outside. Constructed of red and pink
sandstone, the palace sits on the edge of the City Palace,
and extends to the zanana, or women's chambers.
