About travel from Jodhpur
Jodhpur, with over 1.5 million inhabitants, is the second largest city in the State of Rajasthan after Jaipur, and like Jaipur has a number of palaces and forts that attract a lot of domestic and international tourists. The main attraction in Jodhpur is the Mehrangarh Fort which looks donw on the city from the top of a 125 metre high hill, which is a prominent feature of the skyline in an otherwise flat desert like area. The Mehrangarh Fort was built in the 15th Century and remarkably the fort is still owned by the family which originally built it to serve as the new capital of the ancient kingdom of Marwar. The Mehrangarh Fort covers an area of around 5 square kilometres and features a museum, several interesting palaces and temples, and every day at 15:30 the feeding of eagles from the high defensive walls of the fort.
Jodhpur has other attractions as well. The blue coloured buildings of the city’s Old Quarter house traditional craftsmen and many souvenir shops along a series of maze like narrow streets. The city’s food is also distinctive and highly regarded, in particular the Rajasthani style thalis which are sold across the city. Other buildings to visit include the Jaswant Thada, which is an intricate memorial building near the Mehrangarh Fort. Outside the city centre itself attractions include Mandore, which was the former capital, and Khejarla Fort, which is massive red sandstone structure located 85 km by road from Jodhpur.
More recently, Jodhpur has also become famous for being the venue of India’s most spectacular and expensive weddings, including the marriage of Nick Jonas to Priyanka Chopra. The venue for these events is the Umaid Bhawan Palace, which the former ancestral rulers built in the 1950s as their new home after moving out from the Mehrangarh Fort. Part of the Umaid Bhawan Palace has been turned into a hotel, which is very expensive. Viewing the palace from the outside is, however, still possible without being a paying guest.
