Each is a fixed and 'focused' tool.

It is one of the few military structures of medieval India preserved almost intact, containing palaces, a granary, a well-planned cannon foundry, several temples, a tall tower and a giant mounted cannon-the Jain Ban (Jaivan) the largest cannon in the world.

Hawa Mahal

A major landmark in Jaipur, Hawa Mahal ("Palace of Winds" or "Palace of the Breeze") has also grown to be a popular tourist attraction in the city. It offers a breath taking panoramic view. This mainly speaks for the splendid architectural preference of the royal family. Its unique five-storey exterior is also akin to the honeycomb of the beehive with its 953 small windows called jharokhas that are decorated with intricate latticework. The lattice provides cool air caused by the Venturi effect (doctor breeze) through the intricate pattern and thereby air conditioning the whole area during the high temperatures in summers.
