Count the windows

This picture was taken at Hawa Mahal or Palace of Winds in Jaipur, Rajasthan, India. This monument was built in 18th century. It is a five-storey building with 953 small windows. The purpose to build these windows was to let royal women enjoy the view of the market below the palace without being seen by public as the women used to follow strict ‘purdah’ system (face cover).
