We visited the inside one day and came back to visit the outside the next. Although the front (outside) is more iconic, it's fascinating it see where to processed and other women stood to view what was happening in the street.

Hawa Mahal is again another great Rajput architecture. Climb to the top of Hawa Mahal to get the best views.

We had a good time here at a cafe opposite. There's a shop in the same building named Ellora Arts. They have good and pretty saree including jewelry. Nice place to shop.

Visited with our daughter in Feb 2019, and were amazed at behind the facade courtyards, fountains and beautiful glass work. There is also a Cafe Coffee Day inside. For Indians- ticket prices are Rs 50 for adults and Rs 5 for children below 12.

A trip to Jaipur is incomplete without visiting Hawa Mahal. Located near the Johri Bazar, this is a brilliant piece of architecture. Guides can narrate you the entire story and take you around the building. There are quite a few eateries inside as well. It...More

Located on a crazy busy street, and best seen from across the street so you can absorb the huge and intricate facade. Legend has it that the females of the court sat behind the lacy carvings and viewed life on the streets below, which they...More
