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.
