Jodhpur Tours

Jodhpur is the 2nd largest city in the state of Rajasthan in Northern India. Located at the eastern edge of the Thar Desert, Jodhpur was founded in 1459 by Rao Jodha. Jodhpur gave its name to the popular riding trouser that originated here. The city has two popular monikers. The first being ‘Sun City’ due to the frequent bright and sunny weather that the city enjoys. The second and more common being ‘Blue City’ as many of the houses surrounding the Fort are painted blue.

Lying on the ancient trade route, the city is dominated by the massive Meherangarh Fort, topping a sheer rocky ridge. A 10 km long wall surrounds the old city with many gates serving as entrances. The new city is settled around this walled area, Jodhpur offers plenty to see and do. Still run by the maharaja of Jodhpur, Meherangarh Fort is probably the most formidable fortress in all of Rajasthan. One of the fort’s 7 gates is stilled scarred by cannon ball hits. Inside the fort, there is a series of courtyards and palaces some of which house an amazing collection of the trappings of Indian royalty and courtyards. The views from the fort are simply stunning.

Another popular landmark of the old city is the clock tower, located close to the vibrant Sandar market – this is a great place for a stroll. Here you can wander through the many alleys selling spices, Indian sweets, silver and handicrafts. Towards the south-east is the awesome Umaid Bhawan Palace and Museum, a gargantuan Indo-Saracenic pile commissioned by Maharaja Umaid Singh in 1929.
