Popular, colourful and culturally rich, Jodhpur is one of Rajasthan's most beautiful cities. It is also known as the Sun City of India and is said to have been built in the 15th century by a Rao Jodha. This city was earlier known as Marwar and is currently the second largest city of Rajasthan. From the stunning Mehrangarh Fort (from where you can see the stunning blue city), Umaid Bhavan Palace to the bustling Sardar Market, there is tons to do and explore in this touristy city. If you like your holidays to be quiet and laidback, Jodhpur may not be for you – atleast for the first couple of days. There is too much to keep you busy. Like almost all cities in Rajasthan, there are historical forts and palaces to explore and admire. Do carry a scarf and water for your afternoon expeditions should the heat tire you out. There are also umpteen restaurants and small cafes in Jodhpur which offer you delicious food and are also very welcoming. Jodhpur is also a great place to meet like-minded travellers. Jodhpur is well connected to all the major cities of the country via rail, road and air.
We headed towards Kuldhara village. The drive was very scenic and beautiful. Roads were well maintained. It took us approx. an hour to reach Kuldhara. On the way the driver kept telling us about different ghost stories associated with it. Visit it to get a glimpse of the past and get spooked by its tales. Due to some curse, the village remains abandoned even today. We certainly got that eerie feeling when we were inside the village, however it was also very exciting at the same time. The fact that one is not allowed to venture here in the nights and this has been enforced by the government also adds to the excitement.
