Boarding 6:45am train to Jodhpur, we reached there by 12:45pm. After freshening up at the neat n clean railway lounge , we had a great lunch (n cheap) lunch at railway canteen.
Moving on after a few attempts we bargained with a auto Walla to show us all the prominent spots in Jodhpur and bring us back by 6 pm so we could board our 6.45pm traim to Delhi.
Places to visit in Jodhpur: -
1. Mehrangarh fort - Located on a hill, it can be seen from the railway station itself. The way to reach there is beautiful n gives a bird's eye view of the city. At a ticket of ₹100/- pp you get entry inside plus ₹50 each side if you wanna use ELEVATORS instead of walking through the huge fort, a great thing! Ziplkng... Flying fox is there too.
2. Jaswant thada: -
Very near to fort, a beautiful structure n a temple. The view of the fort n its boundary is worth watching from here. You 'll be lost in the marvellous beauty of nature n the Hardwork of man.
3. Mandore garden :-
Supposedly the place where ravan got married though the security guard there rubbished the possibility. The dirty lake welcomes you into the garden followed by a few flowers here n there. The garden houses burials of raja's of Jodhpur along with a temple. The burials are beautiful craved n worth watching. There's a fun world (some swings) too for kids.
4. Umaid Bhavan aka taj mahal of Jodhpur : -
No trip to Jodhpur would be complete without a visit to Umaid Bhavan. A palace cum Taj hotel, the raja still resides in a portion of the palace. An immense palace with intricate cravings, huge halls, magnificent walls and display of royal history n material goods, it's the main attraction of Jodhpur.
Also a jaw dropping display of vintage cars is there.
5. Clock tower - You 'll probably pass through it while travelling from one place to another
6. Janta sweet shop - we got ourselves pyaz kachori n some sweets packed. At a walking distance from railway station, it's a popular spot for all.
We couldn't visit the market as there was a strike. Gladly we reached the station on point n got our dinner packed at railway canteen n were on our way home with unforgettable memories.
