This unique building has 953 small windows, called jharokas, decorated with intricate lattice work. The entire palace represents the crown of the Hindu God, Lord Krishna.

The windows of this palace have been designed in such a way that irrespective of the time or season of year, cool breeze always persists inside the palace. Due to this reason, Hawa Mahal was the favourite summer holiday destination of the Rajput family, and is today a popular place to visit in Jaipur.

As an honour to this holy devotee of god, a temple with seven holy kunds (ponds) was constructed at the site. Galta Kund is the most sacred among these seven kunds and it never gets dry. Galtaji also has temples dedicated to Lord Ram, Krishna and Hanuman.

      Even though the list of gardens in Jaipur is quite long, Central Park blooms out to be one of the largest and most colourful gardens in Jaipur. Located in the heart of Jaipur, this lush garden has a 5 km walking and jogging track. Rambagh Polo Ground and Rambagh Golf Club also lie within the colourful premises of this park. The park is the best place to enjoy all the colours of nature among various species of birds; in fact, this park is a paradise for birdwatchers.

      Other attractions of this park include the tallest tricolour in India and a temple, which is very popular among the natives of Jaipur. The mast of the national flag in this park measures 206 feet in length and is the tallest in the country. The flag hoisted in this mast is 48 feet in width and 72 feet in length, and weighs more than 25 kg.

      Soaked with evergreen trees, plants and herbs, this park is the best way to bring solace to the mind after a monotonous schedule. The Jaipur Development Authority (JDA) takes care of this park.  JDA is introducing some of the modern amenities into it in the course of shaping it into a modern theme park.
