Day 2

The real day starts from here according to the plans

I started around 6:30hrs for hawa mahal to catch the sunrise

Lets get some lesser known facts about Hawa Mahal 5 th one is killer ( as a civil engineer)

1. The Name Hawa Mahal Means 'Palace Of Winds'

2. Hawa Mahal Was Designed By Lal Chand Ustad

Hawa Mahal was built in 1799 by Maharaja Sawai Pratap Singh designed by Lal Chand Ustad in the form of the crown of Krishna, the Hindu god.

3. The Hawa Mahal Was Built So That Royal Ladies Can Observe Everyday Street Life Without Been Seen

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'.

4. The Architecture Exhibits A Unique Combination Of Mughal And Rajput Styles

Hawa Mahal is a cultural and architectural heritage,a true reflection of a fusion of Hindu Rajput architecture and the Islamic Mughal architecture; the Rajput style is seen in the form of domed canopies, fluted pillars, lotus and floral patterns, and the Islamic style as evident in its stone inlay filigree work and arches.

5. Hawa Mahal Is The Tallest Building In The World Without A Foundation

Hawa Mahal has 5 storeys and because of the lack of a solid foundations the palace is curved and leaning at an angle of 87 degree. Still the palace stands upright because of the pyramidal shape.

6. The Jaali Work Of Hawa Mahal Windows Is Similar To The Honeycomb Of A Beehive

Akin to the honeycomb of a beehive with its 953 small windows called jharokhas decorated with intricate latticework. The lattice also allows cool air from the Venturi effect (doctor breeze) through the intricate pattern, air conditioning the whole area during the high temperatures in summers.

Hawa mahal functions 9-5 all day
