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
