Jodhpur, one of the most colorful cities in Rajasthan, is known for its eclectic bazaars, the wonderful Meherangarh Fort, the beautiful city once famous as a trading post on the silk route.
Founded by Rao Jodhaji in 1459, the city of Jodhpur is the dream city of exquisite palaces, magnificent forts and old temples. Also famous in Jodhpur are the traditional festivals celebrated with pomp and style, a testimony to the warm, gregarious nature of Rajasthani people.
On your Jodhpur tours, visit the Meherangarh Fort, one of the largest forts in India. the fort is located on a steep hill, where the high elevation still seems to guard it from enemies. The Meherangarh is a repository of some of the greatest sculptures and works of art from Rajasthan. The latticed balconies, so typical of Rajasthani architecture, present a tender perspective in the Rajasthani horizon. The Jaswant Thada is a cenotaph built 200 years ago to honor the Rajput nobles. The cenotaph holds portraits of Maharaja Jaswant Singh, and you will still be able to see people flocking here to pay their respects.
The lovely Umaid Bhawan Palace, built in a lean period of famine, gave employment to thousands who spent 17 years building this monument. The descendants of the ruling family of Jodhpur still live here. On your Jodhpur Tours, be sure to visit the Museum inside the Umaid Bhawan , detailing the lives of the ruling clan, giving you a glimpse into their lifestyle, history, ceremonies etc. The Umed Garden, sprawling over an area of 82 acres, is a blooming garden with lovely rose bushes, Ashoka trees with soft red blooms and singing fountains. The Aviary inside the Garden houses parrots, ducks, mynahs and many other kinds of birds from across the world. Your Jodhpur tour will take you through these places and more, like the Raj Temple and Raika Bagh Palace.
