Kaylana lake is the sole source of drinking water to the city ,you can do boating also in the lake .Charges are 100 200rs per person. After some snacks Reached Mandore Gardens ultimate architecture. Phenomenal stone carvings. Big garden and a temple. Can be included in Jodhpur trip. Appx 10 km from city 20-25min drive. Parking is also available. Sun plays majestic role in taking pictures. The best place is explore here is Umaid Bhawan but because of covid entry  is closed. But still all the places are worthy.End of the day we explored Market clock tower of Rajasthan is situated in the centre of Sadar Bazar, which is a busy shopping site for traditional clothes, jewellery and also there are plenty of mouth watering street food here, including Shahi samosa and Arora chaat bhandar. In a way this is the centre of Jodhpur, from where you can reach other popular locations. The stepwell is also walking distance from Ghanta Ghar. You can also see Mehrangarh Fort from a distance. It is a super busy location, the best way to explore it is by walking. At night the street along with the clock tower is lit, making it more beautiful!

Followed by Mehrangarh Fort we visited Jaswanth Thada, cenotaphs built in marble around the lake. It was quite small but offers a good view of Mehrangarh fort and the lake is quite beautiful to watch with pigeons, duck, swan etc. forming various patterns. We also watched the sunset from the platform outside Jaswanth Thada which also offers a great view of the Blue City of Jodhpur with sunset background. Being in Rajasthan you get enough of sunset points as the fort timing matches with sunset timings.Even though we didn't want to go on any purchase our driver insisted on stopping by various Rajasthani handloom shops. We hardly had a look at it. We felt cheated as we had to shell out 1000 rupees for that. But mistake was ours we should have asked for the rate beforehand. We decided to go to the missing Umaid Bhawan Palace the next day for 250 rupees.After taking rest for a while we walked the streets and purchased thermal wear for dad along with garam thoppi and gloves for the rest of us. For dinner we had chat in Mishrilal's lassi, doodh jelabi and a dish which had idiyappam in doodh. By far the best lassi I've ever had. But as it was all sweets it became difficult to finish them.Came home damn tired and slept like crazy. If we had visited Umaid Bhawan Palace too we could have had a sound 10-12 hours' sleep but that was never to happen.Day 4 - Jodhpur
