Color in Indian Architecture

Benjamin Moore - Pink Flamingo with their color palette

Found this wonderful building online this evening (Hawa Mahal - which translates to "Palace of Winds") and was captivated by its elaborate facade and lovely, colorful interior spaces. It is located in Jaipur, India and was built in 1799. The facade has been compared to a honeycomb with its 953 windows decorated with latticework.  It is built out of red and pink sandstone.
