Transcript
  HAWA MAHAL , JAIPUR   It was built in 1799 by Maharaja Sawai Pratap Singh, and designed by Lal Chand Ustad in the form of the crown of Krishna, the Hindu god.  Its unique five-storey exterior is also akin to the honeycomb of the beehive with its 953 small windows called jharokhas   that are decorated with intricate latticework  .   Though no historical record is available to its exact history, it is conjectured that Royal family ladies, who were under strict observance of purdah (the practice of preventing women from being seen by men) had to be given opportunity to witness  proceedings in the market centre and watch the royal  processions and festivities sitting behind the stone carved screens.    Hawa Mahal     did just that in style, amidst its luxurious comforts and behind strict screened exclusivity,  unseen by outsiders.
