I had visited city palace in my last visit to Jaipur and found it better than Hawa Mahal. But if you not fond of history than hawa mahal is fun to be at as its smaller and can be fun in group as you can take lots of beautiful scenic pics

You are only able to see the intricate facade of this beautiful buildiing, but it is visually stunning and a building you will remember seeing. The golden rose colour is stunning. There are street sellers in this tourist area selling various interesting items.

I had high expectations from this place especially after seeing the pictures and reading about it on the internet. Architecturally and historically a must visit, but it has been maintained very poorly. I think govt should take some steps.

Don't miss out on the interiors of this palace - most people just make a beeline for its exteriors, but the inside of the palace is beautifully-designed and shouldn't be skipped. To get a good shot of the entire facade, hop over to one of the rooftop cafes in front of it - buy a cold beer or soda, stay... More

Hawa Mahal - Wind palace is an extra ordinary building with a nice story belonging to it. The place is beautiful but not so nicely maintained. The entrance is on the backside.

This palace looks much better on photos than it's really is. It's not so big like I imagined before. It placed on central street in Jaipur and most buildings there looks the same. Only when our guide showed it we recognized it.

A must visit when you are in Jaipur... This five storey structure houses close to 950++ windows.... It sure is a sight to see... Inside it is like a maze of doors and windows that lead from room to room... Its got an interesting story to go with it too... Walking up to the fifth storey, you get a beautiful... More

We had a local tour but didn't go inside. Outside the street is very busy and you will get swarmed with local shop keepers and hawkers. So annoying, you want to leave as soon as possible. We did get to see a snake charmer do his work and it was cool to watch. Don't spend a lot of time here.
