Hawa Mahal, Jaipur
The Hawa Mahal, literally meaning, palace of the winds is an important landmark of the city of Jaipur - the Pink City of India. Travel to Jaipur is considered incomplete without a trip to the Hawa Mahal. It is an interesting building, although it is actually little more than a façade. Probably, this honeycombed building was originally built to facilitate the women of the royal household to watch the everyday life and processions of the city.
Hawa Mahal, Jaipur
There is no definite record as to why Hawa Mahal was built, only conjecture. It certainly was not meant for residential purposes. That becomes clear if one were to view this unusual structure from the rear side. There is a total lack of ornamentation on the inner face of the building. The chambers of Hawa Mahal are plain and mere mass of pillars and passages leading to the top story. It does not seem to be part of the same building.

Built at a time when royal ladies observed very strict purdah (covering the faces), it is widely believed that this interesting palace, with its screened balconies, provided the ladies of the zenana (royal household) an opportunity to watch processions and other activities on the streets below without being observed themselves. The openings in the Hawa Mahal are almost like peepholes, partially blocked by fine latticework in lime plaster, and some with plain wooden windows. The Hawa Mahal lives up to its name as one climbs up to the balconies and is almost swept away by the cool breeze. The royal ladies not only enjoyed the view but also did so in great comfort and style.

Today, Hawa Mahal provides the travelers in Jaipur with some excellent views of the city and a bird's eye view of the Jantar Mantar (a medieval observatory and an important tourist place in Jaipur). The best time to view Hawa Mahal is sunrise when it catches the early morning sun and is bathed in its golden light making it glow like a gem. Strangely, the entrance to Hawa Mahal is from the rear side. So, the next time you travel to Jaipur, do fix up a date with Hawa Mahal.
