Construction notes: the Hawa Mahal or the Palace of Winds

Hawa Mahal is one of the most beloved and revered places for tourists coming to India. Located in Jaipur, the castle resembles an original casket with numerous jewels. The decorations are glass and colored stained glass, of which there are countless in the building.

Part of a complex of palaces belonging to Maharaja Sawai Pratap Singh, it impresses with its elegance and style. Initially, the building was intended to be dedicated to the Supreme ruler Krishna, so it was created in the likeness of the headdress of a religious idol. But then the ruler changed its purpose, placing in it his unique squad of concubines and wives.
The second name of the Palace of Winds was given to the building due to the unique ventilation system. More than nine hundred Windows are designed in such a way that in any room of the castle there is a feeling of wind and coolness. Given the hot climate and the constant impact of high temperatures on the inhabitants of the area, this design helped them feel comfortable and cozy while living in the castle.

Stained glass Windows and Windows are made of colored glass, made by special order of the ruler. They perform not only the role of decoration of the building, but also were designed to protect the residents of the harem from the Intrusive attention of strangers.

According to existing legends, girls were forbidden to leave their territory, but wanting to see the world around them, they spent a large amount of time at non-transparent Windows. Observing the actions of the courtiers, they themselves remained invisible to all. Therefore, Windows and balconies on the inside provide good visibility and open up wonderful views created to delight the eyes of numerous wives of the Maharaja.http://fiatforum.lv/http://fiatforum.lv/
