The Hawa Mahal is an iconic tourist attraction in Jaipur, known for its unique architecture and rich history. The palace, also known as “The Palace of the Winds”, features numerous windows and jharokhas, creating a breezy atmosphere that keeps the palace cool even during the hottest of days. The Hawa Mahal was originally constructed to allow the ladies of the royal family to observe the bustling Johari Bazaar without being seen. Standing at five stories tall, the palace is an impressive feat of engineering, as it was built without a foundation. The Hawa Mahal's curved architecture and pyramidal shape, which leans at an 87-degree angle, has allowed it to stand strong for centuries. A visit to the Hawa Mahal is a journey into the history and grandeur of Rajasthan's rich heritage.
