Plan Your Tour

This five-storey majestic palace is built in pink sandstone and possess hundreds of screened windows and small balconies.

Hawa Mahal was built with some specific purpose in mind. Maharaja Sawraj Pratap Singh, in 1799, built the Palace of Wind. It was built for women in the royal family to view the ceremonial processions on the street, behind delicate stone-carved jali, while seated behind the small windows. The windows were built in such a way that the women were not visible to anybody.
