"Windows" Hawa Mahal Tip by Willettsworld

Hawa Mahal, Jaipur: 57 reviews and 128 photos


The Hawa Mahal features many small semi-octagonal sandstone windows with perforated screens. These windows circulate cool breezes even in hot months and is how it got its name. You have to crouch in order to see out of them so I guess they must have had chairs in them so that the royal ladies could see out of them.
