Jodhpur is the second largest city in the state of Rajasthan and is also known as the blue city of India as the color provides an indigo aura to it with the blue houses surrounding the Mehrangarh Fort. It is also known as the Sun City due to it's perrenial sunny weather, sparse rainfall and is located in the Thar Desert. Jodhpur has various myriad places of interest and is an epitome of historical importance. At the same time, it is also famous for it's well reserved forts that are adorned with exquisite intricate carvings and pieces of art.
My stay at Jodhpur was for a week. The city is full of bazaars and is often crowded with tourists. The labyrinths of alleyways in the old city are unique to the place and overwhelm you with it's bazaars that vend handicrafts, textiles and other beautiful pieces of art. The city is an excellent manifestation of culture blended with magnificent architecture.
Jodhpur is not only famous for it's architecture, but also for the food and shopping purposes. You must definitely look forward to the Tonga rides for exploring the real Jodhpur. The transportation facility is excellent there and taxi's are the most recommended mode of transport which can be picked and the tonga rides are best for people who aim for a journey at economical price and at the same time enjoy the trip.
The various places I visited during my stay at Jodhpur are Mehrangarh Fort, Jodhpur flying fox, Jaswant Thada, Rao Jodha desert forest park, Janta sweet home, Sambhali Boutique, Umaid Bhawan Palace, Mandore and Mandore Palace, Clock tower and old city markets etc.
