Highlights of Hawa Mahal

The Hawa Mahal is a beautiful example of how Hindu Rajput and Islamic Mughal architecture were skillfully combined to give it its recognizable appearance. 

Inside the palace, it is constructed from white marble and red and pink sandstone. People mistake the palace entry for the palace's exterior, which is incredibly attractive when viewed from the street. Since it is an expanded portion of the main City Palace, it is actually the back of the palace. There are 953 jharokhas and latticework on its five storeys. The Venturi effect technique is effectively used to cool the air entering the palace. Royal women never had an issue staying at the Hawa Mahal in hot weather because of this effect, which always helped the place stay calm and lovely. The entire royal family used to gather here on various occasions to avoid the summers together.This monument in the shape of a honeycomb is a proud legacy from a bygone era and is a crucial component of both the history and architecture.
