Hawa Mahal (Hindi: हवा महल, translation: "Palace of Winds" or “Palace of the Breeze”), is a palace in Jaipur, India. It was built in 1798 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.

We walk through this amazing light display every Christmas at The Roosevelt in New Orleans. The cafe right off this hallway is a great stop for some hot chocolate & a treat afterwards. The gingerbread village on display is fabulous too. If you have time stop by the gift shop or make a spa appointment. Find fine art photos of NOLA at therdbcollection.com
