  • Very historical Palace in Jaipur, amongst all the other Palace. A palace which has 365 windows. A huge palace. The queen's could not come out in the open to greet the king as he left the palace, the windows would then facilitate her to take a proper view. A must visit place in the pink city. One of the awesome heritage in India that I visited. This is the place where concept of air pressure difference is utilized and a number of small and big windows are made so that air blow with high velocity inside the palace. So it is called Hawa Mahal.

You may find it difficult to park your car on the busy road however if you enter the City Palace from the main entrance then you get plenty of parking space.

Where to stay in Jaipur

With a big selection of budget and mid-range hotels, Jaipur serves as an ideal base for exploring the surrounding area. Many taxi and rickshaw drivers aggressively push their choice of hotels on unwitting tourists--if you refuse their suggestions, they might double the fare. To avoid this inconvenience, book your room ahead and call the hotel to arrange for a pickup--many offer shuttle services to and from the train and bus station.
