The “Palace of Winds” was part of the City Palace, an extension of the Zenana or chambers in the complex. Its original intention was to allow royal ladies to observe everyday life in the street below without being seen. Constructed of red and pink sandstone highlighted with white lime, the five-storied facade is peppered with many small windows. The breeze (hawa) that comes through the windows keeps it cool even in hot months, and gives the palace its name.
