India - Jaipur - Hawa Mahal (Palace of Winds)


Jaipur is known as the “pink city”, as many of the buildings within the walls of the old town are painted a dusky rose pink. The story goes that Maharaja
Jai Singh ordered that all the buildings be painted pink to welcome Prince Albert and Queen Elizabeth II to the city in 1876, and the buildings have remained pink since. The Amer Fort was my favorite site in Jaipur, with the Jaipur City Palace being a close second.
