Hawa Mahal - Palace of Wind, Jaipur

4.0
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. Put Hawa Mahal - Palace of Wind on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Jaipur trip itinerary app .

  • Centrally located and very old monument. You need to each before 4.30 to get entry. Overall you will like it. the place shows the contemporary architecture of those days about how to keep a place cool in hot whether. Lots to learn.
  • It is wonderful architectural work of Rajputana. It is famous for its windowed structure which gives ventilation in whole palace plus its unique design famous for giving access to royal ladies to see the festivities of royal family without being noticed. Well maintained by authorities. Neat and clean. Located on main road of city, it gives a beautiful view of market from all the five floors.

  • FULL OF HAWAA AND WINDOWS! Entry charges - 50 Rupees for adult. If you want to see a awesome architecture, puppet dance and peaceful area and beautiful creation. But LEAVE your vehicle somewhere because parking slot is too small. It can afford only 20 two wheels vehicles (Although it is free). So come with four wheels or take a public transport.
  • A must tourist spot if you visiting Jaipur. An icon of the city. Located on a very busy road in the walled city, beautiful architecture, wonderful monument. Cleanliness could be better. Beware of agents and hawkers, they will disturb you, distract you and are nuisance.

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.
