The students who often brush ins and travel notes must be familiar with this pink castle. The castle is located in Jaipur, Indias Pink City. In 1876, in order to welcome the then Prince of Wales, the Indian monarch ordered the whole city to paint the side of the street pink. Today, it is still one of the most beautiful cities in India.
The pink Castle pictured above is called the Palace of the Wind. It has five floors, each of which is covered with small windows, adding up to 953 honeycomb windows.
