The original intention of the palace was to allow royal ladies to observe everyday life in the street below without being seen, since they had to obey strict 'purdah'.

HolidayIQ Traveller Shalini Tiwari from Bangalore shares, “Hawa Mahal is an open area behind a wall which was basically meant for the ladies in the palace to see the activities going on in the city. The wall contains many small windows with colorful glasses and netted windows so that they can look without themselves being visible to the city. The place is definitely worth a visit. Click photographs and lose yourself in the beauty of this place. Please don't miss the front view of the wall, chances are that local transport will take you to the back side. Have a happy stay.”
