About the Hawa Mahal in Jaipur
The Hawa Mahal, which means ‘Palace of the Winds’, is part of the Royal City in Jaipur in Rajasthan, northern India. The Palace was constructed in 1799 to allow a vantage point across the street below for ladies of the Royal Court who, according to the rules of purdah, were forbidden from being seen in public. With this purpose in mind the local ruler, Maharaja Sawai Pratap Singh, commissioned architect Lal Chand Ustad to design a five story structure with a total of 953 small elaborately decorated windows.
The whole structure is made from carved red and ink sandstone, as were other important buildings in Jaipur which is why it is known as the ‘Pink City’. The Hawa Mahal has two ingenious and and noteworthy architectural features: the building, at 15 metres high, is the tallest building in the world without foundations, an engineering feat made possible by its curved structure; and the windows of the building are shaped like funnels which act to intensify the strength of any breezes, hence the name, thereby keeping this part of the palace cooler during the intensely hot summers in Rajasthan.
The Hawa Mahal is open to visitors from 09:00 to 16:30 every day. Entrance to the Hawa Mahal costs 10 INR for Indians and 50 INR for foreigners. You can also buy a composite ticket costing 100 INR for Indian nationals and 400 INR for foreigners which gives access to a total of 7 attractions in Jaipur, including the Hawa Mahal and the famous Amber Fort.
