Hawa Mahal (Palace of Winds), Jaipur, Rajasthan, India.   It was built in 1799 by Maharaja Sawai Pratap Singh, 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 that are decorated with intricate lattice work. The original intention of the lattice was to allow royal ladies to observe everyday life in the street below without being seen, since they had to observe strict "purdah".
