Information about Hawa Mahal, Jaipur

The Hawa Mahal in Jaipur is a very popular destination among tourists. Jaipur is the largest city and capital of Rajasthan and is also one of India’s most visited destinations, enamoring Indian and international travelers alike. Every year, travelers flock to the Pink City in a huge number to see for themselves, the magnificence and splendor of Hawa Mahal Jaipur, which translates as Wind Palace.

History of Hawa Mahal

The monument itself has great historical and cultural significance apart from the wonderful architecture. Commissioned by Maharaja Sawai Pratap Singh in 1799, the Hawa Mahal in Jaipur was constructed by Lal Chand Ustad in the form of the crown of Lord Krishna. There is no place quite like Hawa Mahal, Jaipur anywhere else.

Palace of Winds

One of the main attractions in Pink City is the glorious Hawa Mahal. The Hawa Mahal is one of the city's famous landmarks, and a mirror image that is most closely associated with Jaipur by tourists across the world. The imposing five-storey structure, also known as Palace of Winds, has a dizzying amount of windows and is nothing short of an architectural marvel. In fact, City Palace and Hawa Mahal architecture are the finest specimens of Rajput architectural style.

Facts about Hawa Mahal

Its striking exterior is similar in structure to the honeycomb of a beehive. It features 953 small windows, also called jharokhas, which are adorned with intricate latticework. The purpose of this latticework was to let the ladies of the court observe life in the street below while not showing their face, as the practice of purdah was still practiced in those days. The additional benefit of this architecture also is that the breeze coming through the latticework makes the air cooler and almost air conditions the whole area.

Location of Hawa Mahal

The palace is located on the edge of the iconic City Palace at the busy road intersection known as the Badi Chaupad in the walled city of Jaipur. It is located about 13 km from the Sanganer Airport and roughly 4 km from the Jaipur Railway Station.


All the windows in the outer structure are constructed in a pattern resembling a honeycomb, with the intricate latticework being something else to observe. It is also interesting to know that the Hawa Mahal observed in the pictures is actually the backside of the palace. As any number of locals will tell you “Jaipur Ka Hawa Mahal” is a must visit for any travelers.

    • Trip to Rajasthan

      We didn't like our driver. He's needed underarm deodorant. We didn't ask he's religion, but it looked like he didn't like Hindus. When we were supposed to visit a Hindu temple, he just parked on the side of a highway so we could take pictures from far away. Our tour of Delhi was OK, but when we got to Agra to visit Taj Mahal, he told us that we needed a guide and it would be the same when we go to Amer Fort. He told us that the guide's services will be a minimum of 1000 rupees for the two of us. Even though it was not in our itinerary and even though we don't like guides, we just agreed to have one. He insisted that we needed one. We picked him up from the street while we were driving, which were thought was weird. He looked like a guide - dressed nice with a name tag, but we had to pay for his entrance fee. When we got inside Taj Mahal, he started to convince us to hire a photographer which went on for about five minutes. We didn't hire one. Only once he offered to take our picture. When I interrupted his story to ask questions, he told me to wait until later and my questions will be answered when he tells the rest of the story which was much much later. He was emphasizing more on what kind of rocks the buildings were made of and how the decorations on were made. We knew that he was trying to sell us something, and we were right. When we finished the tour, he said that we needed to ride a tuktuk to meet our driver because we were far from the parking lot. He made me pay for the tuktuk. Then he and the driver took us to two places where they sell the things that he emphasized from the tour. The next day when we got to Fatephur Sikri, the driver was telling us that the parking lot is far away from the entrance and we had to take a tuktuk which will cost us about 100 to120 rupees. It is true that the entrance is far, but the designated bus that takes the people to and from the entrance only cost 10 rupees each way - we found this out later. Our driver stopped the car and talked to a tuktuk driver and told us that the tuktuk driver will take us to the entrance. He didn't take us to the entrance. He called a teenage boy and told us that the boy is his brother and would take us to the entrance, but he will not ask for money. It was a long and tiring walk up a hill. When we got up to the top, he called another teenage boy which is also his brother. This other boy said that he is a student and a volunteer guide and he will not ask for money. He said that we would start from the back and pay the entrance fee after we finish the tour. He was talking us away from the attraction which made us feel uneasy. I told him that we wanted to pay right away and go through the front entrance. When we got to the entrance, there was nowhere to pay. We went in after talking our shoes off, but we kept our shoes with us. We didn't know what to do when we got inside the building. I read that we were supposed to pay 500 rupees, but the place didn't look that big. Luckily we met three European tourist that had a map of the place and told us where we were supposed to pay. I told our volunteer guide to help someone else and that we don't need him then he asked me to pay him. I didn't. We got out of the building which we found out was a mosque and walked a block to the real entrance. This attraction is worth the entrance fee. When we finished, I asked how to get to the parking lot. I was told to to bus for 10 rupees. When we got to the parking lot, we had to search for our driver. When we found him, he said that he was worried because we took too long. We didn't trust him anymore. When he dropped us off at our hotel in Jaipur, I told him that we don't want anymore guides. He was disappointed and insisted that Amer Fort is a very important place and we need a guide. We told him that we don't like guides. The next day before the tour, he told us that he would pay for the guide. We told him that we don't like guides to tell us what to do and where to go and we don't need them. We enjoyed the rest of the tour. Royal View hotel where we stayed in was very nice with a great view on the roof.

    • Trip to Rajasthan

      Took a trip with traveltriangle (and DIU holidays) to Rajasthan. It was my first trip via traveltriangle based on quotes and feedback from friends. But it turn out to be not so good. Contact person from TT was not available at all, when i need to callback, it was automated system no real person. Only time i got response is the time when i paid money installment. Even automated system asked for number so that TT can callback, but not received any call. So anyone booking with TT should note that TT will NOT be there when you need. Good thing in trip was Contact person from DIU holidays, he picked phone when required and had been in kind of constant touch. You can count on them. Coming to trip itself: DRIVER was worst, his objective was just to pass the time so that he don't have to drive and find a free parking even if we have to walk long distances (parking, toll etc. was included in our price). He will say negatives things about spots that were mentioned in itinerary so that we dont visit that place and refuse slightest detour as it was not part of itinerary. first HOTEL was not so good, far far from city and not at all family environment (it was a OYO hotel, you know what goes with those). Second HOTEL was good. Best thing was Sultan resort and sand dunes. DIU had planned trip well and will definitely book with them in future.
