Beauty of Jodhpur

Mehrangarh Fort

Rising perpendicular and impregnable from a hill which is 125 metres above Jodhpur’s skyline is the Mehrangarh Fort. This historic fort is one of the most famous in India and is packed with history and legends. Mehrangarh Fort still bears the imprints of cannonball attacks courtesy the armies of Jaipur on its second gate. Chiselled and sturdy, the fort is known for its exquisite latticed windows, carved panels, intricately decorated windows and walls of Moti Mahal, Phool Mahal and Sheesh Mahal.

Moti Mahal

Moti Mahal, as the name suggests, is the Pearl Hall where the royal families held their audience. The hall is known to have glass windows and five nooks that enabled the queens to listen to the proceedings taking place in the Sringar Chowki, The Royal Throne of Jodhpur.

Kailana Lake

Situated on Jaisalmer road, this small artificial lake is an ideal picnic spot. It is like a canvas with a splash of romantic colours. The beauty of the lake stays with you long after you’ve experienced it. For those who’d like to go out on to the lake, boating facilities are also available through R.T.D.C.

Umaid Bhawan Palace

Umaid Bhawan Palace was built by Maharaja Umaid Singh in 1929 to counter a famine which had hit the state at the time. It was also known as the Chittar Palace while being constructed thanks to the use of stones drawn from the Chittar hill. The palace was designed by HV Lanchester, a renowned British architect, and was completed in 16 years. Built with sandstone and marble, the architecture of the palace is described as a blend of lndo-Saracenic, Classical Revival and Western Art Deco styles. It is recognised as one of the largest private homes in the world and also one of the more spectacular buildings. It is the only palace built in the 20th century.

Jodhpur Travel Guide

Jodhpur and the surrounding area is famous for amazing and unique natural life and you should definitely take a day to explore it. First stop is the Rao Jodha Desert Park, a striking expanse of volcanic rock below the fort walls and home to a variety of flora and fauna. Untouched for years and only inhabited by some particularly obstinate weeds, the Desert Park was carefully constructed in 2006 and traditional plants nurtured in what was once a barren wasteland. Early morning guided wildlife tours can be arranged which last for around 2 to 3 hours, although routes are flexible. The expert guides will describe the history of the area to you, help you spot some of the more cleverly camouflaged animals and explain the culinary and medicinal uses of the plants in the area. Entry is 100Rs. per person and a group tour guide costs a further 400Rs.
