Jodhpur

INTRODUCTION

The citadel of Jodhpur, the Blue City, is protected by the awe-inspiring Mehrangarh Fort. The bastion stands out on a rocky ridge looking down on the city that is awash in blue walls, staying true to its moniker. Jodhpur’s delights begin from the 16th century old city wall that stretches for 10kms. The city’s winding streets are a joy to explore, heavy with the scent of incense sticks and rosewater. Blue-walled shops sell everything from saris to trumpets.

West of the clock tower lies the heart of the old city with its ancient-looking bazaars. Whether you’re in Jodhpur to check out its architectural wonders or soak in the local culture, no traveller is left unimpressed.

Being a major tourist city, we’ve curated a couple of itineraries that will introduce Jodhpur in all its glory. All you need to do is land up prepared for a whirlwind of an adventure!
