4/5 based on 4,600+ reviews on the web
Admire a distinctive pink sandstone facade and ornate architecture at Hawa Mahal - Palace of Wind, the city's most recognizable landmark. Rising five stories above the street below, the 18th-century palace features an array of cupolas, verandas, and balconies attached to the royal residence. As you wander the hallways and rooms within, you'll be treated to the same view enjoyed for centuries by the women of the royal family. Forbidden from being seen in public, the women peaked at the outside world from behind the palace walls. Bring your camera to snap images of the royal grounds and the nearby market.

  • Nice refreshing building design, is worth to have a look while strolling in the Pink City. Surrounding very crowded, noisy messy, a real taste of Incredible India. 
  • The site is a must see and you need a guide to explain the extensive history of the site. You can take an elephant ride to the top. Ignore the hawkers who will hound you .their prices are 5 times shop...  read more »
  • The front view of Hawa Mahal is very attractive. The kind of architecture is very beautiful. The inside portion of the Hawa Mahal has not much to see but satisfactory. 
  • Awesome place. It's really amazing to know how the people of ancient times were intelligent. Hawa mahal was built to take in mind that the ladies of mahal could see the outer area but no outsider could see them. The proper air ventilation was also in their mind. It's a clear example of mind marvel.
  • great hawa mahal i love hawa mahal 3
  • The structure is beautiful but nothing so special as claimed. Yes there are many tiny windows(the size of your aircraft ones) and most part of the year they are closed. Also it is located in the middle of the market and unless you're wanting to shop for bangles and spices, its a real pain to walk with utter commotion and dirt all around. Its not more than a 20 min lookaround so in my opinion shouldn't be as a priority for your sightseeing plan.
  • !! " WIND PALACE " !! -- hawa mahal is also known as palace of wind and this beautiful building is near to local jaipur market callet johari bazar and bappu bazar so whenever you go to local market or city palace jantar mantar please visit this monument .
