First love of the destination wedding enthusiasts, Jodhpur is a regal beauty which exudes royalty from every corner. Anciently architectured houses on narrow roads are a definite treat to eyes. On the other hand Jodhpur is fairly modern too with the growth of National Institutes it has become a hub of students. It is a perfect place for traditional shoe lovers. Jodhpur also has it's fair share of desert. If a trip is planned to Rajasthan, this blue city is a must halt.

Expert tip: There are number of festivals organised by the crown all round the year. Make sure you plan a trip about those days.

Stands tall on a hilltop, Meherangrah is a true beauty. It has that world famous well which was shot in Dark Knight Rises. The fort is also a museum which preserves all kingly items in a great manner. The rooms, armors, palanquins look not even a day old. The shops inside the fort are expensive but really rich in Jodhpuri culture, some money can be splurged.

A majestic lake house shadowing lake Balsamand is a must visit place. The major attraction here is the beautifully built swimming pool which has amazing carvings on the pillars and roof. The open air restaurant in Balsamand has scrumptious food to offer. Perfect setting for a date night!

The deserts of Jodhpur are found in Osian. This place is also known as mini Jaiselmer (Thar desert) so if you are planning to give Jaisalmer amiss then Osian is totally the place for you.
A Bishnoi village known for the conservation of trees and animals is the habitat of Bishnoi community who swear by to protect the nature. One of it's kind this community is now an attraction for people around the globe, mostly because of their practice of serving Opium to their guests.
