The Hawa Mahal should be seen from the street. Its wonderful honeycomb design with 953 little windows is beautiful - This is actually the backside of the building. If you decide to go inside the Hawa Mahal temple, expect to be dissapointed by the rest...More

A fantastic facade. Nothing more. Drive past, listen to the history, take a couple of pics of the facade and you’re done. Nothing more to see or do here.

This is a place where maximum tourists visit daily. Historical place but now a days area is very congested

Lovely frontispiece - but there is nothing to see in side. Also hard to take god photos because of the manic traffic. Good for a 15 minute stop.

What a let down. I have to say the only let down we had. But it is just a façade. Nothing more to say.

In my experience, early morning or late afternoon. The colour of the walls will be different in your photos depending on the position of the sun. Enjoy!
