I love that contrast of deep blue to the intense pink, great composition
Great subject 🙂
Great colors, Sophie…
Wow! What a beautiful picture. Why is it called the Palace of Winds?
I was told it was because of the many windows and screens (almost 1000) letting the wind in and keeping it cool.
We, unfortunately, bypassed Jaipur on our first stop in India. Love your vintage post-processing on the palace.
Jaipur is such a colourful part of India.
Such detail … I wonder how long it took to make this wonderful place!
It was finished in 1799, but I’m afraid I don’t know how long it took to build.
Lovely Picture, I will use it and give you credits when I write a blog post on Hawa Mahal.
