Located to one side, but a part of the City Palace complex, Hawa Mahal is best viewed from the street outside. If is were not for the bustling bazaar all around, it would have been easy
to mistake it for a film set, so exquisitely is it proportioned, and so incongruous is its delicacy.
Hawa Mahal consists of five tiers of corridors on the inside, with pierced screen windows that overlook the street below. It is believed the women of the royal zenana would sit concealed behind these
screens to see life in the city beyond the walls of the palace.
