“Bird eye view of Jaipur”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 March 2012

You can see the Bird Eye View of Jaipur. A fantastic place to visit. You can also click pictures from the colored windows. There are lot of stalls outside so that you can buy different cloths, handicrafts, etc etc. A trip to Jaipur is incomplete without Hawa Mahal. Strongly suggest you to visit.

“Must visit, fun (and windy).”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 March 2012

Apparently drivers don't like their clients going in, because they can get lost leaving (no idea why). Make sure you go in and climb to the top, its just such fun, and with great views!

“Good architecture”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 March 2012

This is only a building which you can appreciate for its engineering to make the place more airy. If you are a civil engineer you will appreciate more the simple techniques used in building this palace

“Photo Spot”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 March 2012

Its a good spot to take picture. You can not see the interiors but the facade is so beautiful. Go there early in the morning as the location is on a very busy street near a market. Just across Hawa Mahal, I saw a local indian with his cobra dancing. All tourist tried to take photo with him and the snake. After each photo the old man will chase you to give him for some money. He will get angry if you dont give him. Just prepare a small change like INR100
