Hawa Mahal ("Palace of Winds" or "Palace of Breeze") located in the heart of the beautiful Pink City of Jaipur in Rajasthan, India, is one of the most famous tourist attractions and a prominent landmark of the city that is renowned for its rich cultural and architectural history.

Built in 1799 by Maharaja Sawai Pratap Singh of the Kachhwaha Rajput dynasty, this beautiful structure is predominantly a high screen wall made of pink and red sandstone that facilitated royal women to get an eyeful of the street festivals and busy city life while remaining out of the view of public.

Situated on the edge of the City Palace, this pyramidal structure was built in the shape of a crown of Lord Krishna with 953 jharokhas (or overhanging balconies from where cool and fresh air can pass) and a beautifully decorated façade resembling a honeycomb of a beehive that gives one a feel of the rich heritage of the Rajputs.

Despite the large number of windows, each of them are size of a peep hole such that the royal ladies were not to be seen by the public.
There's a small museum within the complex of Hawa Mahal, which houses famous items like miniature paintings and ceremonial armor.

The Sun Temple, a sandstone temple dating back to the 11th century, located at Modhera village, in Gujarat, India, is one of the few shrines that are dedicated to the solar deity Surya.

Set along the backdrop of River Pushpavati, surrounded by a terra-formed garden of flowering trees and songs of birds, the exclusively carved temple complex was built in 1026 during the reign of King Bhimdev of the Solanki Dynasty (believed to be the descendants of the lineage of Sun God)

The brilliant architecture of the temple is one of its own class. The edifice is divided into three main sections, namely Surya Kund, Sabha Mandap and Guda Mandap. The 'Toranas' (Archways) that lead to the main halls overshadow the absence of spires or shikhars.

The exterior walls are engraved with intricate carvings, boasting about the mastery of art in those times. Every single inch of the structure, both inside and outside, is covered with the sculptural patterns of Gods, Goddesses, birds, beasts and flowers.

Erected on a high platform, the Sun Temple at Modhera appears majestic with its grand structure. The shrine was designed in a manner, so that the first rays of the Sun cast on the image of the Lord Surya.
