Hawa Mahal was build in 1799 and is a spectacular landmark in Jaipur Old City. The name Hawa Mahal means "The Palace of the Winds". The building has a pink-sandstone architecture with 1000 small windows. There are 5 storeys inside without stairs, only a series of ramps.

Jaipur is an exciting and historical place. But it's also a typical place where you meet many tourist. Some of the pictures are taken with a GPS enabled camera. You can track the coordinates in f.ex Google Earth.

Jai Mahal is the lake palace on the road between Jaipur and Amber Fort. It's looks beautiful in the middle of Man Sagar Lake. All guided tours from Jaipur to Amber Fort stops at this place so you can take your photos. However it is not possible go inside the building, and no people lives there.

The horse carriage was located in a tourists area of Jaipur. Forget about bicycle rickshaw if you want a pompous ride.
