Transcript

Jaipurs Palace of Winds was built in 1799 as part of the citys royal residences. This beehive-like structure is shaped like the crown of the Hindu deity Krishna. It was built for the royal women who could not venture outside into the streets. Window screens allowed them to look out onto the everyday life and common folks. The palace also served as a summer retreat for the rest of the royal family. Walls of marble and sandstone surround fountains in the inner courtyard. The majesty of this Indo-Islamic palace stands testament to a forgotten empire.
