Owner description: Made of red and pink sandstone, Jaipur's signature palace of unusual architecture is a stunning example of local artistry. The top of the Hawa Mahal offers an excellent view over the city.

Hawa Mahal, also known as the Palace of the Winds. What a lovely structure! With 900+ small windows, it is covered with intricate latticework that acted as a screen for the royal ladies to observe the activities on the street below without being seen. The many windows allowed the air to flow through making it a very pleasant area for the ladies especially during the hotter seasons.

Note that this structure is right next to other shops and there is no where to park. In order to get a full picture of the building, you’ll need to cross the very busy street (at your own risk!!!) to get a better viewpoint.

The Hawa Mahal "Palais des vents" in french is so beautiful outside as inside. With the light of the sun, the red color is more beautiful. Around this palace, you can see different bazars very interested.

A must visit place in Jaipur. No parking for Hawa Mahal. A very clean place. Brilliant architecture. A very airy place as its name tells.
