About Travel to Jodhpur

Jodhpur is Rajasthan’s second largest city with a population of around 1.5 million people which makes it about half the size of Jaipur.

Jodhpur compared to Jaipur

Like Jaipur, Jodhpur has a large sandstone fort and an impressive palace, however, the number of tourist attractions in Jodhpur are notably fewer than in Jaipur. Nonetheless, Jodhpur has its own distinctive character and it’s well worth visiting even if you already visited other famous cities in Rajasthan such as Jaipur and Jaisalmer.

Mehrangarh Fort

The Mehrangarh Fort is the main tourist attraction in Jodhpur and its most prominent landmark. The fort was completed in 1459 as the new home of the ruling Marwar ruling family. The city of Jodhpur developed as the local population expanded and moved out of the fort itself.

The fort itself has a footprint of around 5 square kilometres with a 36 metre high wall around its entire perimeter. The location of the fort is also striking. it sits on top of a 125 metre hill in an otherwise largely flat area. The fort is visible on a clear day from most parts of modern day Jodhpur.

The Marwar royal family stayed in residence at the Mehrangarh Fort until 1943, when they¬† moved into the then newly constructed Umaid Bhawan Palace. The Umaid Bhawan Palace is partially open to visitors and contains a museum, a hotel, and what is probably India’s most expensive wedding venue. Likewise, the Mehrangarh Fort has also been repurposed as a tourist attraction which you need to pay a fee to enter. There are shops, restaurants and hotels inside the fort. Performers have also been hired to wear costumes and demonstrate various arts and crafts to visitors.

  • The ancient capital, Mandore, which is 7 km by road from Jodhpur.
