About Hawa Mahal

Hawa Mahal, popularly called the Palace of Winds, is the most distinctive monument of Jaipur city. Built in pink sandstone, the ornamentation is confined to the rear side of this five-storey structure. It gives this attraction in Jaipur a feel of an elaborate facade instead of a palace. There are 953 ornate sandstone windows in this palace from where the royal women used to see the processions of the city. If you are claustrophobic, be cautious of the narrow corridors of this stunning monument. The curvilinear roofs, spectacular domes and finials enhance the look of this Mahal further. Built in 1799 by Sawai Pratap Singh, the entrance of this palace is from the backside. The beauty of this landmark lies in the fact that you can observe the streets of Jaipur from here without being spotted.
