Why are We Butchering Hawa Mahal, Jaipur in the Name of Restoration?
This petition had 77 supporters
I recently visited Hawa Mahal and saw the restoration work going on the premises. It is an outrage. They have hammered ugly green wooden blocks all over the jalis. They have stuck a kundi into a beautiful green door, the kind we will not even put at our modest homes.
There are railings to deter visitors climbing the balcony but they are so out of character in the delicate Palace of Winds!
You can look at more pictures over here. I have clicked them when I visited the monument on December 7, 2016.
It is an ASI protected monument. I want to understand from the Head ASI and the Chief Minister of Rajasthan as to how this kind of shoddy work have been allowed at one of the most iconic buildings of Jaipur? This should stop immediately before there is more damage to the monument.
