The Route Description

Hawa Mahal is a place of breathtaking beauty and an epitome of wind. To describe it in words is a task due to its sheer magnificence leaving the viewer speechless. Sit on any floor of the amazing 5 store structure which has 953 windows or jharokhas cut out into its walls to allow cool air to circulate even in the middle of the Indian Summer. The architecture includes floral patterns, arches, glass paintings and canopies and you can spend hours here just like Sawai Pratap Singh would, while composing his poems in the Vichitra Mandir. To enter Hawa Mahal, you have to go through the rear end and not the front entering The Museum which is a must visit to relive history. Relish the visual spectacle of the red and pink sandstone structure, experiencing the main city Bazaar as was by the royal women. Step out and explore the world famous Badi Chaupar Market and indulge into the tempting Jaipur Shopping experience while you buy memorabilia, handicrafts, clothes, bags, footwear, jewelry and the world famous Jaipuri Rajai or Quilt but don’t forget to bargain hard. Try the famous Jaipuri Patasi or Golgappe at any road side stall to your heart’s content.
