Jaipur, known as the Pink City, is the state capital of Rajasthan. Jaipur is famous for its collection of magnificent fortes, palaces, temples and vibrant culture.

Hawa Mahal (above photo) is a must see during any trip to the Pink City. This palace was built in 1799. Its unique design incorporates the arranged windows in such a way which circulates cool air through the building. Hence the name which directly translates to “Palace of the Breeze”.

In this particular photo of Hawa Mahal, the sun was high and the sandy colours were illuminating a bright burnt orange. As the sun the lowers, the colours change to a warm pink.
