Hawa Mahal


Location
Jaipur, Rajasthan, India

Hawa MahalHawa Mahal or the Palace of Winds is an architectural wonder, befitting the appellation well with its abundance of windows that circulate tranquil breeze and its look, that resembles more a cascading screen than a building. Tourists visit mostly during October to February to bathe themselves in the wallowing wind and sweep the entire Pink City (Jaipur, as it is called) at one glance from its pristine heights.

The Genesis of the Palace of Winds
Maharaja Sawai Pratap Singh built this magnanimous monument in 1799, as an extension of the Zenana or the women's chambers, so that from its legion of windows they could command an excellent view of the entire city and its activities from their seclusion.

Architectural Feat
The structure of this regal 'veil' is truly a classic emblem of Rajput artistry. This unrivalled piece of architecture, master-minded by Lal Chand Usta, is a five-storey pyramid shaped palace built in red and pink sandstone and ethnically outlined with white borders. The building is hewn with a series of 953 casements - each with netted pink windows, small balconies, arched roofs and exquisitely modelled hanging cornices. The royal doorway opens to a spacious courtyard peppered with buildings and a museum. Interestingly, there are no stairways in the palace. Do not worry, visitors need not train themselves to be spider-man, the ramps will take you to the upper echelons without trouble.

Visit the place at sunrise and you will be left benumbed at the celestial aura the palace wears. We can plan for you an enthralling visit to the Hawa Mahal along with your various sight-seeing tours in India.

Don't Miss these out
Jaigarh Fort » Jantar Mantar : An architechtural miracle built by Maharaja Jai Singh in India's 'Pink City' - Jaipur. Within its tall walls is enclosed a world of scientific secrets for the visitors to come and unravel.

» Laxmi Narayan Temple : An architechtural wonder by the Birla family - this is the counterpart of Delhi's Birla temple. This three-domed beauty in white marble spellbinds onlookers at night.

» Jaigarh Fort : The Jaigarh or the Fort of Victory was built to protect the royal treasury. A walk through the interiors and the museum will transport you ages backwards to the period of the Maharajahs.

Accessibility
The well connected airport, Sanganer, is 15 km from the city. The rail junction has all the major trains, including the tourist heart-throb Palace On Wheels that starts from Delhi every Wednesday. Delhi at 262 km has regular luxury and budget buses to Jaipur.
