Fort is beautiful however you can skip going inside and instead just watch it from road like most of the other travellers.

A nice place to visit, the windows out to the street are lovely. Difficult to get to the top as only one person wide staircases with little safety railing so not for the faint hearted but beautiful inside and out. Would recommend for a visit

Hawa Mahal is set of windows which was used by female members of Darbar to watch processions passing on the main market. Photographers delight.

A nice building in Jaipur that let your imagination run in these days when the women living here, had these windows to "live: in the outer world. Not many things to see.

In my experience, early morning or late afternoon. The colour of the walls will be different in your photos depending on the position of the sun. Enjoy!
