Hawa Mahal

Hawa Mahal Rd, Badi Choupad, Jaipur, Rajasthan 302002, India


Hawa Mahal( "The Palace of Breeze") is a palace in Jaipur, India. Made with the red and pink sandstone, the palace sits on the edge of the City Palace, Jaipur. The structure was built in 1799 by Maharaja Sawai Pratap Singh. The original intent of the lattice design was to allow royal ladies to observe everyday life and festivals celebrated in the street below without being seen since they had to obey the strict rules of "purdah", which forbade them from appearing in public without face coverings
