Jodhpur One Day Tour

Route: Jodhpur Local Sightseen

Duration: 1 Day

Tour Description :

The Sun City of Rajasthan, Jodhpur, is a city known for its bright sunny weather that remains almost the whole year. Just like Jaipur is known as the Pink City, Jodhpur holds the designation of being the Blue City, because of the blue painted houses and walls all around the Mehrangarh Fort. This city is also full of historic values and buildings just like the other cities of Rajasthan. The old city circles the fort and is bounded by a wall with several gates. However, the city has expanded greatly outside the wall over the past several decades. Jodhpur lies near the geographic centre of Rajasthan state, which makes it a convenient base for travel in a region much frequented by tourists.

Itinerary

Arrival in Jodhpur

Meeting and assistance upon arrival as our representatives welcome you and escort you to your car. Later you will be taken to visit:

Mehrangarh Fort:

The 5 km long majestic fort on a 125 metre high hill is one of the most impressive and formidable structures. Although invincible from the outside, the fort has four gates approached by a winding road. Within the fort are some magnificent palaces with marvelously carved panels, latticed windows and evocative names. Not worthy of these are the Moti Mahal, the Phool Mahal, the Sheesh Mahal, the Sileh Khana and the Daulat Khana. These palaces house a fabulous collection of trappings of Indian royalty including a superb collection of palanquins, elephant howdahs, miniature paintings of various schools, musical instruments, costumes and furniture.

Jaswant Thada:

Cluster of royal cenotaphs in white marble built in 1899 A.D. in memory of Maharaja Jaswant Singh II. Within the main cenotaph are the portraits of various Jodhpur rulers.

Umaid Bhawan Palace:

The only 20th century palace built under the famine relief project that gave employment to famine struck population. The palace was completed in 16 years. This opulent edifice in sandstone is still the residence of the former rulers with a part of it running as hotel and remaining part as a museum.
