Hawa Mahal (हवा महल “Palace of Winds” or “Palace of the Breeze”), is a palace built from red and pink sandstone and lies in Jaipur’s Pink City. The original intention of the latticed windows was to allow royal ladies to observe everyday life in the street below without being seen since they had to obey strict “parda” (face cover). It was built in 1799 in red and pink coloured sand stone, tying in with other monuments in the city that give Jaipur the name “Pink City“.

India has always been exalted and remembered fondly as the country of symbolic colors. To an outsider, its colorful culture, streets, and stories seem like a page out of an ancient folk tale. But color, in essence, has been a large part of the Indian consciousness

Religions are classified according to their beliefs in God: Atheism – no God, Monotheism – One God, Polytheism – Many Gods. While most of the popular religions fall into one of the three categories mentioned above, Hinduism is the only religion which can be accurately, yet not fully described individually, by all these terms: Hinduism is Atheist at the same time as it is Polytheist at the same time as it is Monotheist, as well as henotheistic, i.e. belief in one major God with other subsidiary Gods “worshippable” too! Oh, and Hinduism can also be considered “monist” i.e. the belief that all the seemingly disparate elements in this universe can be reduced to one single unity. So there you have it: Hinduism is perhaps the only religion in the world to which all kinds of epithets such as above apply, and yet fall short of suitably encompassing its definition! That’s what aliving history of 4000 years does to a religion
