Hawa Mahal Palace
Hawa Mahal means the Wind Palace, built in 1799 as an extension of the Royal Palace in the “pink city” of Jaipur. In order to meet the strict regulations at the time, this special architectural space was designed so that even women sitting in the palace could still observe the streets below without being seen by outsiders.

Like a giant iconic mirror in Kashmir, Dal Lake truly mirrors the colorful “boat houses” of the locals and the majestic snow-capped Himalayas in the distance.
In the winter, Dal Lake may freeze. In July-August, countless lotus blooms here to form a colorful “carpet” covering the surface of the lake. Dal Lake is also known for its floating markets full of flowers and local vegetables.
Located in Agra city, Uttar Pradesh state, the magnificent Taj Mahal is one of the most famous destinations in India, attracting tourists from everywhere to admire. Completed in the mid-17th century, the Taj Mahal seemed to be all the love that the Mughal emperor Shah Jahan had for Mumtaz Mahal, his late wife.
With its unique symmetrical design and meticulous and elaborate decorative details, the Taj Mahal is considered a priceless art masterpiece. Thanks to the white marble construction, the tomb can reflect and change colors miraculously with each light time of day. In 1983, UNESCO honored this “jewel” of Indian Islamic art as a world heritage site.
