Hawa Mahal

Hawa MahalLocation : Jaipur
Built in : 1799
Highlights : Its Rajputana architecture and its 953 windows
Perfect Time to Visit : October to March

The literal meaning of Hawa Mahal is 'Palace of Winds'. One of the main landmarks of Jaipur, it is a five storey building, displaying remarkable Rajputana architecture. Build in pink and red sandstone, the mahal has 953 windows, which were built with the aim to enable ladies of the royal household to watch the everyday life and royal processions in the city without being seen. Each one of these windows has tiny lattice worked (Jali) windows (pink in color), small balconies and arched roofs with hanging cornices, elegantly modeled, engraved and carved. A spectacular view of the city can be seen from this palace. Though one can see a glimpse of Mughal architecture, the splendid Rajputana architecture with beautiful outline and white borders and motif's done (painted) with quick lime beautifully adorns the palace.

The main entrance to the Hawa Mahal is from the City Palace side, through a door that opens into a spacious courtyard. This courtyard has a double storeyed building on three sides. The pyramid shape of the Mahal gives it an appearance of the crown that adorned the head of Lord Krishna. The Mahal stands on a podium and is fifty feet high, though the thickness is less than even a foot. In contrast to its beautiful architecture, the interiors of the palace are simple. The best time to explore the beauty of the Hawa Mahal is sunrise when sunlight pierces the latticed windows giving it a wonderful glow.
