Carlos Manzano

Jaipur is the capital of Rajasthan state. Built of pink stucco in imitation of sandstone, the city is remarkable among pre-modern Indian cities for the width and regularity of its streets which are laid out into six quarters separated by broad streets 34 m wide. The urban quarters are further divided by networks of gridded streets. The Palace quarter encloses a sprawling palace complex (the Hawa Mahal, or palace of winds), formal gardens, and a small lake (wikipedia).
