The Palace of Breeze

Written By Kanishka Thakur (Grade 8)


Hawa Mahal has exquisite, alluring, and divine architecture. The five-story building looks like the honeycomb of a beehive. Hawa Mahal is heaven on Earth. It is built from red and pink sandstone that shines like a glistering star. The view at night and day is a sight for sore eyes.

The Palace of Wind is tall and has 953 windows covering the lace-like facade of the palace that were designed to allow the ladies of the royal court to watch the drama of the streets.

Hawa Mahal was manufactured by Maharaja Sawai Pratap Singh. He was so inspired by the unique structure of Khetri Mahal that he built this historical palace. It was designed by Lal Chand Ustad in 1799.  This architectural feature also allowed cool air from the Venturi effect to pass through, thus making the whole area more pleasant during the high temperatures in summer. Doesn’t it sound amazing? One should surely visit it to see the elegance of the structure.

The importance of the palace is that it is dedicated to Lord Krishna, and it resembles the crown of Lord Krishna. Looking into its cultural significance, it reflects the Hindu Rajput style of architecture. The Hawa Mahal has a complexion of beauty as well.

Last but not least, it inspires me to always shine, no matter how many storms come into my life. Stand confidently and shine always. It encourages us to face hard challenges and complexities in our lives with a smile on our faces.

It also makes me realise the importance of adapting to any environment, whether it is warm, freezing, or pouring out in life. It also encourages you to take a moment to appreciate your own beauty and fill happiness in your life as well as in others.

It also makes sense to never forget your roots and always protect your cultural architecture. To sum up, I will surely never forget the beauty of the palace and the inspiration that it gives me.
