must-see scenic spots in Jaipur
风宫（Hawa Mahal）算得上斋浦尔的一大标志，它是一个童话般的非同寻常的红沙石建筑，看起来就像是一个精致的蜂巢，窗户数百，通风透光。顶部一座座拱形圆塔，彼此相连，宛如一座塔山。正面有无数扇用红砂岩镂空雕成的八角形窗户，密如蜂巢，拱形窗楣，雕以各式图案。炎夏之时，室内徐徐凉飘过，故有“风宫”之称。Wind Palace (Hawa Mahal) is a symbol of Jaipur, it is a extraordinary fairy tale red sandstone building, reminiscent of a delicate hive with hundreds of windows, ventilation and transmittance. Arched Round Towers connected to each other on the top, like a hill. In the front there are countless octagonal windows hollow-out carved with red sandstone. It is also like nests, arched window lintel carved with various patterns. In hot summer, cool wind would come through indoors. That is why it is called the "Wind Palace".
The whole building is tall and imposing. Though wit over 200 years' of history, it gives an impression that it only constructed recently. Imagining taking a ride of time travel, becoming the imperial concubine at that time, in loneliess, overlooking through the bustling street through balconies and windows.
琥珀堡一改旧城的粉红色调，主要由乳白、浅黄、桃红、纯白的色调构成，犹如琥珀，故称之为琥珀堡。城堡内有许多不同用途的宫殿，全都华丽、精美。最巧夺天工的是“镜之宫”，整个宫殿用上万块形态各异的碎玻璃镶嵌出各种图案，阳光下反射出奇异的光芒，据说夜间只需一根蜡烛就可以让整个宫殿熠熠生辉。Different from the pink tone of old town, Amber Fort mainly consists of milky white, yellow, peach, pure white tones. It looks like amber, which also results in its name Amber Fort. There are places for different uses, all gorgeous and exquisite. The most wonderful place is sheesh Mahal, inlayed with tens thousands pieces of mosaic-shape broken glass of various patterns, which reflects the light under the sun. It is said only one candle is required to light up the whole palace during the night.在琥珀堡（Amber Palace）骑大象构成了我们对这座城市最美好期待之一。斋浦尔的大象脸上描有美丽的彩绘，而据说胡里节（洒红节）前夕这儿要过“大象节”——会给大象涂上漂亮的各色图案。为了保持图案的完整，大象很长时间都不能洗澡。Riding elephants in Amber Fort is one of the most beautiful expectation of this city. Elephants’ faces are drawn with beautiful paintings. It is said that, in Jaipur, on the eve of Holi Festival, "Elephant Festival" will be celebrated, where elephants are painted with beautiful colors and patterns. In order to maintain the integrity of the pattern, the elephant will not be able to take bath for a long time.想了解更多关于Justyoga 印度行的讯息请关注 Just Go India 印度之旅。
