Jodhpur is the second largest town in Rajasthan and is known as Sun City because of its arid weather and also as Blue City as most of the houses in the old city are in shades of Blue. Jodhpur is quite famous for its historical significance and traditional Rajasthani food. This city has a bundle of things to offer to all genres of travelers, be it, solo traveler, traveling with a group of friends, for couples and for families as well.
So let me tell you my story of an affair with this Magical Blue City.
Departure and Arrival -
Jodhpur is very well connected with all the major cities of India. One can opt either for a bus or train to reach Jodhpur.
I opted for the train because I love traveling by Indian Railways. I booked a reservation in Mandore Express which departs at 9'30 PM from Old Delhi Station and arrives at 8'00 AM in Jodhpur. The ticket cost was 370 INR.
The train reached Jodhpur on time. It was a nice and sunny morning with a cool morning breeze. I booked my stay at HosteLaVie, which is a backpacker hostel located in the heart of Jodhpur City. The cost for a bed in the dorm was 350 INR. The hostel is located only 2 KMs from the railway station, so instead of taking an auto or cab, I decided to walk.
I was walking towards the hostel and Janta Sweets grabbed my eyes. It is highly recommended to have Kachoris when in Jodhpur. I did the same and went to the shop and had delicious and mouth-watering Kachoris and guys, they were amazing. I kept following Google Maps and reached the old town of Jodhpur and the moment I entered the old town, I saw most of the houses were blue in color.
