  Hawa mahal - Jaipur - India

I'm not going to repeat everything you can read in most Vter postings about this palace, in Wikipedia, or something alike.

My special feeling, besides the confirmation of the beauty of its facade, was the way it is integrated with the city, dominating the image of the area, but very well integrated in the whole.

Not the usual outstanding luxury apart from the city and contrasting with it, but something being part of the street, living with it, still hiding the faces of gone women, behind its delicate windows.
