En route to Amber, there will be a brief photo stop at the ‘Hawa Mahal’, known as the Palace of Winds. Built in 1799, it is a remarkable facade structure, constructed of red sandstone overlooking one of the main streets, spe-cifically meant for the ladies of the Royal family, who would sit behind the trellis screens and comfortably ob-serve the activities on the streets without being seen.
Proceed to city of Jaipur, known as the ‘Pink City’ of Rajasthan, since so many of its buildings are painted in a lovely pink hue. The City Palace, with its museum, is still the home of the Maharaja of Jaipur. On show are an ex-tensive collection of art, carpets, textiles and weapons, all beautifully preserved.
