First stop In Jodhpur ofcourse Umaid Bhawan !!!
A palace, a museum and a hotel .....
It is said Jodhpur once suffered crisis and drought and so the ruling king ordered to build this fort , so that employment and revenue could be generated and given to the local residents ..
The king left the old Mehrangarh fort and made umaid bhawan as his new residence
The museum has royal car collections , restored royal darbars and royal accesories and arms collection of the predecessors of the exisiting King !!
The hotel became such a prime property after wedding of the stars that they started charging cover to have food also !!
The cover charge is 6500 RS for a single person !!! Which I think is too much for a single person and an expression of bad hospitality ...
The room in off season goes upto 50k plus taxes and during season 100k plus taxes
The property around Umaid Bhawan known as Umaid Heritage is as expensive as properties around Delhi and Mumbai !!!
Well still a lovely experience around the palace !!!
Next Stop Mehrangarh Fort
The original fort of Jodhpur , a true masterpiece , Unesco site now and a museum now !!
From the canyons point you can have a complete view of the blue city .
Within the fort is a Famous Chamunda Ma Mandir
The fort has a separate garden area , which is turned into a restaurant now !!
Rajputs Taj Mahal
A beautiful building built by Rajputs !!
A small lake , funeral place of the royals !!
