Hawa Mahal - Palace of Wind, Jaipur

4.1
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 .

  • This monument needs no introduction. This beautiful pink structure is probably the most famous structure of Jaipur. Its built with pink stone and looks beautiful with its unique architecture. This place is located on a very crowded street full of hustle bustle near city palace. you can get good view only in early morning hours when traffic is less. in the night its lit with lighting and looks beautiful. The entry to this place is against tickets which can be purchased from the counter. no one forgets to get clicked against this beautiful building.
  • A salute to such a great Indian architecture the place was very beautiful. and most observable thing was that there was no sign of wind or even breeze at entry gate of palace but when go to the top and open the windows you feel a soothing breeze. One of the most famous places in Jaipur. Really a nice structure but not as expected. It is just a wall and has some sort of sculpture museum. Nice place to visit though. Has a good market around it. So, good if you want to shop and do sight seeing.That experience was marvellous .The place is really nice.
