Jaipur Hawa Mahal History

Hawa Mahal is a palace situated in Jaipur city of India. The name of the Hawa Mahal was kept as the high walls were built for women in the palace so that they could easily observe the festival outside the castle and see them. This palace is made of red and pink sandstone stones. This palace remains on the edge of the City Palace.

It was built in 1799 by Maharaja Sawai Pratap Singh. Lal Chand Ustad, who had designed it as the crown of Hindu God Krishna, had designed it. Outside of this five-storey building, honey beetles of the same size are also engaged and there are 953 small windows in the palace, which are called Jharkha and these trees have been decorated with fine artworks.

At that time women used to come out of the lattice for a while and used to observe daily life. At that time it was mandatory for women to cover "the screen" on the face. It is said that with the help of these nets, they also felt cold air, and their face was cold even in sunny heat.

After 50 years, the palace was repaired in 2006, at this time the value of this monument was reported to be around 4568 million rupees. The corporate sector took up the responsibility of protecting this monument but later the Unit Trust of India took up the responsibility.

After the famous Hawa Mahal, its complex was also developed. Tourism can be seen in the historic Thane Hawa Mahal.

Another attraction in the palace is the curved side of the wall. Like other monuments built in Jaipur, this palace is also made of red and pink colors.
