Hawa Mahal


Hawa Mahal in Jaipur resembles an enlarged piece of ornament that glitters like a massive choker on the exquisite throat of the picturesque City Palace in Jaipur.

The picture pretty Hawa Mahal looks more like an exotic honeycomb that glitters in hues of pale pink under the lustrous gold sun.
Hawa Mahal


Maharaja Sawai Pratap Singh commissioned Lal Chand Usta as the chief architect who designed the Hawa Mahal for a specific purpose. The idea behind the construction of this delicate looking monument was to create a platform for the ladies of the royal household to observe and enjoy the on-goings of the busy bazaars and street below, without being noticed by commoners.

Constructed in 1799, the Hawa Mahal is a five-storied structure that has no steps but ramps that lead to tiny cocoons from where the ladies of the regal family could see what was going on in the city.

The Hawa Mahal in Jaipur is known as the Palace of winds and has semi octagonal overhanging Jharokhas, intricately chiseled with traditional motifs and attractive designs.

Hawa Mahal has the distinction of being one of the most photographed monuments of Jaipur, Rajasthan, India. Indian Horizons gives you an interesting opportunity to come and explore this fascinating and fanciful architectural marvel in Jaipur, Rajasthan, India.
