Hawa Mahal Palace represent itself as a symbol or Icon for Jaipur itself. Visit from inside this palace is amazing. Just give you feel how the royal ladies use to see the march, festival and other activities from this palace. Surely a is must to this monument.

Rajasthan and it's nearby areas have a wealth of palaces and forts to visit and after seeing a few it can be tricky remembering which was which. This is not the case with Hawa Mahal. It is very distinctive from the outside and deceptively spacious inside. It suffers the usual Indian drawbacks of the two tier pricing system (where tourists... More

While the famous facade is well known, inside you get a chance to see more of the structure Access is at the rear, we entered via the bazaar.R200 for foreign tourists. Have to say inside didn't do much consisting of a maze of passages taking you ever highrt. If you have 30 mins to spare focus on getting to the... More

A palace built so ladies could watch the world go by without being seen by the public. A great photo opportunity but you can't go inside so worth a quick look at the exterior and then move on.

We visited the Wind Palace while in Jaipur and found it to be wonderful. It is only a facade, but is an excellent reminder of why Jaipur us called the Pink City. The area is quite busy with vendors, but they generally polite. We rode in tuck-tucks to get there and enjoyed that experience as well. Jaipur traffic is pretty... More

Perfect in every detail but you cannot get in - just look from both sides and enjoy the detail, the colour, the whole ambience. If you are lucky someone may look out of the window!

This palace of winds is a must visit when one visits Jaipur. Despite the heat in the city it has been designed immaculately to allow breeze into the rooms. Some renovation work is going on so hope they don't spoil this iconic design of the 17th century!!
