Hawa Mahal, Jaipur Reviews - Write a Review
Another landmark of Jaipur. Well managed. Clean. Promises to keep you well aerated but carry your water n kerchief. Simple yet beautiful. Went inside for first time. Beautiful inside as well. The outer facade is iconic n looks stunning in the night after illumination
A must watch place for lovers of history and those who ate interested in ancient architecture. The craftsmanship and planning are super. Make sure to have an authorized guide to know in detail. Difficult for older people to visit all areas. Only a narrow passage to reach the fifth floor.one person can hardly walk. Ramps with railings are good for people to walk along the steep ramp
Very historical Palace in Jaipur, amongst all the other Palace. A palace which has 365 windows. A huge palace. The queen's could not come out in the open to greet the king as he left the palace, the windows would then facilitate her to take a proper view. A must visit place in the pink city. One of the awesome heritage in India that I visited. This is the place where concept of air pressure difference is utilized and a number of small and big windows are made so that air blow with high velocity inside the palace. So it is called Hawa Mahal. The view from outside the Mahal is awesome.
Hindu and Islamic architecture, and the exterior, with its small latticed windows (called jharokhas), resembles the crown of Lord Krishna. The windows also serve as an air-conditioner of sorts, blowing cool air throughout the palace, making it the perfect retreat during summers. Built from pink sandstone, the Hawa Mahal is Jaipur’s iconic landmark and visitors can view its complete magnificence from outside, from across the road. However, it is also possible to climb right up to the top for a wonderful view from the windows. Today, the Mahal is maintained by the Archaeological Department of the Government of Rajasthan and also houses an archaeological museum in the courtyard.
Hawa Mahal is a very good historical place. Which is built by swami Pratap Singh in 1799. I had gone here couple of time. I had enjoyed here more.. this amazing place for visitors. I recommend to all visitors at least visit one time here and see Indian historical property. January - March these months are good for visiting here
