Through Jaipur

When you were born, you cried, and the world rejoiced. Live your life in such a manner that when you die, the world cries and you rejoice.

– As repeated by the Jaipur tour guide during a tour of the City Palace and Observatory


The Wind Palace – Not a palace in and of itself but a section of the City Palace. The women of the royal family would come and sit in the windows to see what was happening in the market without being seen. The construction was made in such a way that the natural winds brought in a cooling breeze…hence Wind Palace.
