Hawa Mahal - Jewel of Jaipur

January 28, 2018

 

One of the jewels of Jaipur is Hawa Mahal. It was built in 1799 by Maharaja Sawai Pratap Singh for the ladies of the Royal Household so they could watch over the city. It is an amazing 5 stories high and painted deep pink. The incredible design and detail of the building is quite mesmerising. 

 

The top offers stunning views over Jantar Mantar and the City Palace in one direction and over Sireh Deori Bazaar in the other.

 

On Saturday's and Thursday's it's possible to visit the museum with a collection of paintings, ceremonial armour and relics of the past Royals. 

 

We visit this beautiful building on our Indian Riding Adventure why not find out about the other sites we get to see when we are there?
