Golden Triangle

One of the most popular landmarks in Jaipur, Hawa Mahal is also known as the Palace of the Wind, Hawa Mahal is the most photographed monument in Jaipur. Hawa MahalMaharaja Sawai Pratap Singh built the Hawa Mahal in 1799. Built in red and pink stone, the Hawa Mahal is the masterpiece of Rajput architecture. The five-story structure-Hawa Mahal-was designed by Lal Chand Usta. The Hawa Mahal was built to enable women of the royal household to watch the everyday activity of the Pink City without being noticed by others.

Famous for it's Beehive like structure, the entrance to the Hawa Mahal is in the rear side of the main building, the front portion of the building having no entry at all, unlike conventional buildings. The Hawa Mahal is made of red and pink sand stone, beautifully outlined with white borders and motif's painted with quick lime.

The entrance to the Hawa Mahal is through the City Palace and there is an imposing gateway that opens into the courtyard. The Hawa Mahal, true to its name is amazingly windy. As you step on the balconies you will surely have a feeling of being swept away. Here you will find an archeological museum that will provide you with the glimpse of the art and craft of the place.

The monument provides a panoramic view of the city of Jaipur. The inside of the building is simple and lacks ornamentation. The building is five storied, pyramid shaped structure and is made up of 953 casements. The openings in windows look almost like peep holes and it is specially designed for the women folks of the palace to watch the goings on out side without being seen by the people. Each casement has a tiny lattice worked (Jali) pink window, small balconies and curved roofs with hanging cornices. The windows are delicately sculptured and carved.

This five storey building of unusual architecture designed by Lal Chand Usta, is a stunning example of Rajput artistry made of red and pink sand stone, beautifully outlined with white borders and motif's painted with quick lime. Its facade from the road side makes Hawa Mahal look more like a delicate screen than a palace. This five-story, pyramid-shaped structure has tier after tier of 953 small casements, each with tiny lattice worked (Jali) pink windows, small balconies and arched roofs with hanging cornices, exquisitely modeled and carved.
