El Hawa Mahal (en español: 'Palaciu de los vientos') ye un palaciu de la ciudá de Jaipur na India. El palaciu foi construyíu nel añu 1799 pol marajá Sawai Pratap Singh y foi diseñáu por Lal Chand Usta. Formaba parte del Palaciu de la ciudá de Jaipur. Sirvía como estensión de la zenana o cámara de les muyeres destinada al harén. La función orixinal del edificiu yera la de dexar a les muyeres reales reparar la vida cotidiana de les cais de la ciudá ensin ser vistes.

El palaciu tien cinco pisos, los dos cimeros un pocu más estrechos, lo que-y confier una cierta forma piramidal. Ta construyíu en arenisca colorada y rosa, con incrustaciones realizaes n'óxidu de calciu. La fachada que da a la cai tien un total de 953 pequenes ventanes. El vientu que circulaba al traviés d'elles dio-y nome al palaciu. Esti vientu ye'l que dexaba que la cortil caltuviérase frescu inclusive pel branu.

El Hawa Mahal nun ta arrodiáu de xardinos como sueli ser habitual nos palacios indios sinón que s'atopa nel centru d'una de les principales cais de la ciudá. La estructura esterior del palaciu recuerda a lo cabero d'un pavu real, animal de gran simbolismu na India. Nun hai escaleres que lleven a los pisos cimeros a los que s'apuerta por aciu ramples. Ta consideráu como'l máximu esponente de l'arquiteutura rajput. Anque na actualidá caltiense pocu más que la fachada, el palaciu convirtióse nel símbolu de la ciudá de Jaipur.

The stunning wall is on the outside you don't need to get inside, tho the view from top is good, but if you look for the great one wall, that's around the corner.

The Hawa Mahal, built in 1799 has now become one of the major landmarks of Jaipur. The palace is shaped like a pyramid & is a five-storied building, with small windows, screens & arched walls.
