Jodhpur: The city of grandeur and great heroes

Jodhpur topped “Lonely Planet’s” list of most extraordinary places to stay in 2014…and it is extraordinary! It is popularly known as the “Blue City” for its houses painted a vivid blue, that surround the massive Mehrangarh Fort located on a sheer rocky ridge right in the middle of the town. The city is also known as the 'Sun City' for the bright and sunny weather it enjoys all year. Located at the edge of the Thar Desert, Jodhpur is the second largest city in Rajasthan. The city was the bastion of the ancient Marwar kingdom and founded by Rao Jodha, the leader of the Rathore clan, in 1459 A.D. The city is famous for its bazaars, which offer a rich collection of exquisite handicrafts. The old city of Jodhpur is surrounded by a 10 km-long wall and, to enjoy the true flavours of the city you just need to wind through the jumble of streets, smile at the unusually fascinating folk wearing multihued costumes, and try on the colorful turbans worn by the men folk. Mehrangarh fort, Jaswant Thada, and Umaid Bhawan Palace are the prime attractions here.

The indigo-coloured houses in the old town can best be seen from the walls of the mighty Meherangarh, which looms high above the buzzing city. Meherangarh Fort, the “Citadel of the Sun”, made with burnished red sandstone and situated on a steep hill, is a must-see destination of Jodhpur. This is one of the largest and best preserved forts in India which has breathtaking numerous palaces which are lively examples of skilled Jodhpuri sculptures and architecture.
