Very nice

Gorgeous structure with interesting history. Didn't visit the inside (as it's mostly a facade) but took pictures from the street. Interesting details

A great architectural marvel with so thin yet beautiful and intresting facade... It's fun climbing up and down the narrow stairs and wandering around the place.

This 'palace' is just the remaining facade. Take your pics and go home 5 minutes later. Nothing else to see.

Maybe I expected a bit bigger or more dont know, but its facade and the interior are so pretty. Dirty as most of things in India. The picture is just sublime and if the weather is good as it was the case, it makes it such a perfect moment :)

Hawa mahal is an old classic architecture of kings. If you are in Jaipur to witness the old places like palaces, forts & museums then you should visit Hawa mahal a.k.a Wind palace.

This is a cool historic building in Jaipur where the women could see but not be seen. The decoration is very intricate and exemplifies the 'Pink City'.

It is a great monument right in the center of the city. The purpose of this was to let the royal ladies watch street festivals happening and because of that the small windows are placed everywhere.
