As you wander the hallways and rooms within, you'll be treated to the same view enjoyed for centuries by the women of the royal family. Forbidden from being seen in public, the women peaked at the outside world from behind the palace walls. Bring your camera to snap images of the royal grounds and the nearby market.

  • Hawa Mahal is a beautiful structure predominantly a high wall made up of red sandstone. The visiting time closes at 4:30pm. But the best time to visit according to me is in the evening. In the evening the yellow lights is flashed on the wall and its the most beautiful site. People come here for sightseeing the beautiful colours that the wall has to give. The Mahal is in the streets so it attracts a lot of crowd and traffic
  • Nice place. It's name justify this place. Place is very cool even on summers. You can feel the cool breeze from every window. It it not wheel chair accessible.
