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.

Sacred Indian cows - Cows in India are not worshipped, Cows are honoured in gratitude for their generosity, value, and gentleness. They provide people in India with milk, yoghurt, paneer, ghee etc..and taking nothing but water, grass and grain. Hindus view the cow as a maternal figure, who contributes unconditionally and in so many ways to the daily sustenance of humanity. As non violence and non killing are the highest code of ethics for Hindus, 87% of India are vegetarians.
