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.

  • Officially-Palace of Breeze, but all Indians and tourists know it as the Palace of winds. If you need to see in Jaipur, uniquely, it like the whole town in a pink color. Indians sit before him-snake charmers, photo will be released for slaughter

  • Nice historical place Beautiful architecture and building exterior but lacks the same inside. The building stands on a main street and the entrance is on the side not directly in front, might need to ask a local where it is as there's no signs. The building was hosting an arts exhibition when I attended which for me was more interesting than the building. Like all architectural monuments in India, you need a guide to really appreciate what you're looking at, the Hawa Mahal literally feels like just an open set of rooms otherwise with no stand out features apart from the exterior. The view from the highest point is of course great, especially with its central location, you can see the hustle of the streets below This older hotel has elegant decor but updated bathrooms. The painted ceilings are a very nice touch. The shower had fantastic pressure and the beds were nice and soft. The pool area is shaded and nice in the heat of the afternoon. We are breakfast and dinner in the dining room both days and enjoyed our meals. Lots of variety on the menu.

  • Very nice place to visit with family and kids. Its quite clean & graceful environment. Just behind the main Street. Location is good to reach here. The construction of this is very nice. The premises of this is kept very clean. You find a peaceful & delightful place here . evening time is a little bit crowded...but in the evening it looks really awesome.
  • When I was a school student, I saw Hawa Mahal (Palace Of Wind) in a book and I had desire to see this place in real. I had many questions and imagination about this Palace of wind. I wanted to see it and wanted to make my childhood dream come true 😇 Here I am, second time in front of the Hawa Mahal. Enjoying, happy, making my dreams as reality. 😇 🇮🇳 🛤 💨 🏰 Hawa Mahal (English translation: "Palace of Winds" or "Palace of the Breeze") is a palace in Jaipur, India. It is constructed of red and pink sandstone. The palace sits on the edge of the City Palace, Jaipur, and extends to the zenana, or women's chambers
  • This palace has some real beautiful architecture. Heard a couple people say there's no point going inside the Hawa Mahal, but we were glad we didn't take that advice. Sure it was small but it was definitely worth a visit. Enjoyed a little puppet show inside, too.
