Hawa Mahal of Jaipur

Hawa Mahal of Jaipur

Krisha is one of the most worshipped deities in Hinduism. He is considered as an avatar of Vishnu, the Preserver in the holy Trimurti, but he is also revered as a major god. He is the god of compassion and tenderness. As one of the most prominent Gods in Hinduism, it is no surprise to find powerful men in history devoting great works for Krishna. One such man is Maharaja Jai Singh who has commissioned for the Hawa Mahal to be erected.

No visit to Jaipur will be complete without a trip to see the Hawa Mahal in person. It sits at Badi Choupad and stands tall at five stories adorned with its 953 windows. Its distinct architecture looks like a humungous pink honeycomb that allows the breeze to freely blow through, earning it the name “The Palace of the Wind”. It was built in 1799 as an extension to a palace nearby but has proven itself to be worthy of being called the main landmark of Jaipur. This watercolor on cotton fabric painting of the Hawa Mahal of Jaipur is a work of Vitthal Das Rathore. His work artfully depicted the Hawa Mahal in all its pink and honeycomb glory. it may be on the backside but the grandeur of the palace stands out against the crowd of procession-goers.

The Hawa Mahal was originally designed to carry the lattice look to give royal ladies the chance to peek at the life outside without being seen, as they have to observe purdah which does not allow them to be seen with their bare faces. The Hawa Mahal is also considered the masterpiece or chef-d'œuvre of Maharaja Jai Singh, who is said to have worshipped Krishna at the third storey called the Vichitra Mandir. In there, the Maharaja devoted poems and devotion to Lord Krishna.

Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...

Namaskar. I am writing to thank Exotic India Arts for shipping the books I had ordered in the past few months. As I had mentioned earlier, I was eagerly awaiting the 'Braj Sahityik Kosh' (3 volumes). I am happy to say that all the three volumes of it eventually arrived a couple of days ago in good condition. The delay is understandable in view of the COVID19 conditions and I want to thank you for procuring the books despite challenges. My best wishes for wellness for everyone in India,
