Explore Hawa Mahal

Known as Palace of the Winds, Hawa Mahal's beauty lies in its unique honeycomb structure with 953 tiny windows, each decorated with intricate jali (lattice work).

Destination Essentials

The best time to embark on a family adventure in Jaipur is between November to February, when the weather turns balmy, making sight-seeing and outdoor activities a pleasure. Adventures in the sun are best enjoyed in mild temperatures, adding comfort to your escapades.

The summer months (April to June) can bring extreme heat, which may not be suitable for outdoor family outings. Likewise, monsoon season (July to September) has a romantic charm but heavy rainfall might hinder your sightseeing plans. Choosing your visit during the pleasant winter months ensures a comfortable and memorable family vacation.
