Jaipur, Rajasthan (PRWEB) December 18, 2012
Those who have visited Jaipur must understand the importance of this capital city in India’s tourism industry. The land, which is filled with colorful bliss, vibrant culture, exhilarating festivals and above all, friendly people is undoubtedly the most visited place among domestic as well as international tourists. The City Palace, Amber Fort, Albert Hall, Jal Mahal and of course the Hawa Mahal are the most stunning gems of Jaipur tourism. The city is undoubtedly the main attraction of India Golden Triangle Tour that also includes the Taj Mahal tour in Agra and tours to Delhi. Now, with the latest news of all the major gates of Hawa Mahal opening, it has become more interesting for tourists who want to explore the heritage site in India more extensively.
For ages, people have been flocking to Jaipur for a memorable visit to all these attractions. Today the importance of this city is heightened to a greater extent; the reason behind this new found zest is its famous landmark- the Hawa Mahal.
Hawa Mahal, one of the most beautiful sites in the city has captured the awe of many tourists due to its surreal architectural wonders; and a visit to it is the most striking experience of Rajasthan tours.
There is good news for the fans of Hawa Mahal as this famous monument is being opened wholly after 50 long years. Now, tourists will get a fair chance to visit this monument completely that boasts of seven huge courtyards, four of which remained closed for renovation purposes prohibiting people to make a complete visit to this monument. On 5th December, 2012, the archaeological museum allowed for the re-opening of the major gate which had been closed for 50 years. Tourists can now visit all the seven courtyards and appreciate the Hawa Mahal completely.. One of the most notable developments is that now, there are separate gates for entry and exit so the tourists can go in and out of the landmark without any hassles.
The superintendent of the archaeological museum, Zafar-Ul-Allah has informed that the previously closed portion was formerly under the control of the Ayurvedic Department. Later,, these sections were renovated under the supervision of the archeological museum to make a more complete visiting experience of Hawa Mahal.
“The Palace of Winds”(Hawa Mahal) was built in the year 1799 by Maharaja Sawai Pratap Singh and was designed by Lal Chand Ustad in the form of the crown of Krishna, the Hindu god. This unique five storey-building resembling in the form of a beehive honeycomb is featured with 953 small windows fashioned out of red and pink sandstone and was constructed especially for the Rajputana Ladies who used to watch the daily market activities and city life through these lattices.
The most noticeable part of the structure is that the Hawa Mahal is so well crafted that it creates some kind of a micro-weather system at the top of the structure which remains windy and breezy even during the scorching summers. All these elements make Hawa Mahal a highlight in India’s tourism industry and a source of national pride.
Mr. Vijayendra Thapliyal, Managing Director of Tour My India cites: “It’s the most tempting opportunity for the heritage lovers to get a picture perfect view of this 200 years old monument. Interestingly the number of visitors will increase in the coming future who are planning for the Golden Triangle Tour of India.
