The Hawa Mahal stands at the intersection of the main road in Jaipur, Badi Chaupad. It is regarded as the signature building of Jaipur and was built by Maharaja Sawai Pratap Singh. The most distinctive landmark in the city of Jaipur is the Hawa Mahal. Hawa Mahal refers to the Palace of Winds or the Palace of the Breeze. The Palace has been so named because it has latticework that encourages the cool air to enter the palace and it gives a cooling effect during the summers in Jaipur. The main reason why it was built was to allow the women of the royal household to observe the street festivals while being unseen from the outside. The top of the palace offers a brilliant view of the City Palace, Jantar Mantar and the ever-busy Siredeori Bazar. There is a small museum which holds some rich relics and miniature paintings. The Palace is built in the Rajput Architectural style and is constructed of red and pink sandstone. The Hawa Mahal covers 5 floors and it has a pyramidal structure which almost resembles a crown.
