    Narrow winding pathways leading upto top level allow visitors a peek into what it must have been for royal ladies living in purdah looking down at the busy street life. Avoid going here on weekend as it can get very crowded. The market around Hawa Mahal is a shoppers paradise selling wares like - traditional Rajasthani attire, shoes, bags, jewellery and bedding, homeware.

    Hawamahal is excellent place to view in Jaipur where by you can admire the technique and excellent demonstration of the ancient architects. Dont forget to tier yourself until you reach the top of the structure and enjoy the view. The structure stands majestically in heart of the city.
