Jaipur, capital of Rajasthan. An absolutely remarkable fort, the best preserved 17th century astronomical complex in all of India and the palace of its Maharajah (City Palace)

 

 

The Jaipur Wind Palace was built by Maharajah Sawai Pratap Singh at the end of the 18th century.

Its main function was to allow the women of his harem to see what is happening in town without being seen.

This palace is in fact mainly made up of a finely carved and perforated facade to serve its original destination: to see without being seen.

 

The Maradjahs lost their title and became hotel owners. The elephants no longer work for them, but did they gain by the way ... Not sure ...

They are probably more badly treated in their new attributions, the folk transport of tourists.
