The city has a great Fort/Palace (Amber Fort), City Museum with the history of the area, and palace (closed) in the middle of a lake and many marble and historical painting.
I produced a short video (starts out in black) the opening shows the Hawa Mahal ("Palace of Winds") which was built in 1799, its unique five stories exterior is also akin to the honeycomb of the beehive with its 953 small windows that are decorated with intricate lattice work. The original intention of the lattice was to allow royal ladies to observe everyday life in the street below without being seen, since they had to observe strict "purdah" (face cover). Next is the Amber Fort/Palace and the city itself.
Daytime temperature is about 70F (21C) and since we are in the desert after sunset the temperature drops very quickly to about 50F (10C).
