A beautiful amalgamation of the Mughal and Rajputana styles of architecture, charmingly carved out of red and pink sandstone, this palace in Jaipur is one of Rajasthan's most famous monuments.
It was built by Maharaja Sawai Pratap Singh in 1799 A.D. and has close to 953 windows through which the breeze passes, keeping the palace cool!
But the most interesting part is that this marvelous 5-storeyed structure actually stands without a foundation!
Yes, the monument stands upright because of its pyramidal shape! It is curved and leans at an angle of 87 degrees!
