Hawa Mahal - Review

The Facade of the Hawa Mahal Jaipur is indubitably one of the most gorgeous and impressive things you will see in the world. The five storeys and the front facade have amazing and extensive networked marble work done upon them. The 953 windows called jharokhas are an astonishing sight. They were designed in the way so as to aid privacy.

Hawa Mahal Jaipur Architecture: The design of the jharokhas allows one to be able to observe the exterior without being seen. The lattice structures also facilitated the inwards flow and retaining of the fresh and cool air within the building as a result of the lattice network. The exterior and the walls of the palace are built of mostly red and pink sandstones. This is a Mughal architecture designed by Sawai Pratap Singh, Lal Chand Ustad.

The Hawa Mahal is an amazing amalgamation of cultures. The Mughal and the Rajput architecture as well as customs have been married beautifully here. The interior of the palace is built of varieties of coloured stones, gems, and chiefly marble. The inner courtyards are adorned with decorated fountains. Hawa Mahal is one attraction that stands synonymous with Jaipur and is thus a must visit.

  • Speaks of the visionary the emperor used to have back in those days. The "Hawa Mahal" served the purpose of being airy inside to allow the women to enjoy the view outside without suffocating and being viewed by people outside. The interior decoration inside the fort are jaw-dropping. Local eateries and shops are very attractive. However, I feel the less congestion on the streets would have allowed a better view of the fort from outside.

  • जयपुर की पहचान माना जाने वाला हवा महल कई स्‍तरों पर बना हुआ महल है, जिसका निर्माण सवाई प्रताप सिंह (सवाई जय सिंह के पौत्र और सवाई माधो सिंह के पुत्र) ने 1799 ए. डी. में कराया था और श्री लाल चंद उस्‍ता इसके वास्‍तुकार थे। मधुमक्‍खी के छत्ते जैसी संरचना के लिए प्रसिद्ध, हवा महल लाल और गुलाबी सेंड स्‍टोन से मिल जुल कर बनाया गया है, जिसमें सफेद किनारी और मोटिफ के साथ बारीकी से पच्‍चीकारी की गई है। यह भवन पांच मंजिला है, जो पुराने शहर की मुख्‍य सड़क पर दिखाई देता है और यह राजपूत कलाकारी का एक चौंका देने वाला नमूना है। जिसमें गुलाबी रंग के अष्‍ट भुजाकार और बारीकी से मधुमक्‍खी के छत्ते के समान बनाई गई सेंड स्‍टोन की खिड़किया हैं। यह मूल रूप से शाही परिवार की महिलाओं को शहर के दैनिक जीवन और जलसों को देखने के लिए बनवाया गया था।

  • Superb piece of magnificent architecture. World famous tourist spot. Thousands of domestic and international tourists can be spotted daily who plan to visit this glorious heritage place. Although traffic is a big issue here and you have to be very cautious if taking personal vehicle. It would be great if you hire a taxi or some other means if you intend to enjoy visiting without any hassles. You also have to refrain from sellers who may try to sell you things for exorbitant prices. Good place and a must to visit if you happen to be in Jaipur for a memorable holiday

  • Very nice place. and felling awesome. Communication facility also very nice. No more distance from railway station and bus dupe . Jaipur railway junction to Hawa Mahal around 6/7 km and Bus stand also around 4/6 km only. There Local Street food also very nice and available there.

  • Beautiful structure.. shaped like a beehive- has a rich history... Wish the surroundings were better.. traffic spills right outside this beautiful palace... Once inside it's really cool and you don't even realize that there's a very very busy City and a road right outside
