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.

  • 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.

  • 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. This palace is a defining picture of this heritage city of jaipur One must have this in the travel list for the city but it won't take you much of time Ample of street food options and a very good photography opportunity
