Jaipur’s Hawa Mahal

June 29, 2011

Hawa Mahal, Japir

I knew nothing about the Rajasthani city of Jaipur’s highlight, the Hawa Mahal, or Palace of the Winds, before I visited the city.

As I discovered, while it’s no Taj Mahal or Golden Palace, it’s beautiful and has an intriguing design.

And to be honest, I still know nothing about the Hawa Mahal.

But it’s very pretty. Don’t you think?

    Looks interesting. Why are the columns toppled in the hallway?

      Not sure, Kris, and I couldn’t find anything on Google! I’d say they once stood in the hall, or elsewhere in the palace.

      Elise, it was really pretty with the light! There was hardly anyone there when I visited so I almost had the place to myself.
