Jodhpur lies on the edge of the Thar Desert was a former capital of the powerful princely state of Marwar in Rajasthan. The mighty and magnificient Mehrangarh fort rises above to ring the city with its massive protective walls, epitomising the power of the bygone era. Perched on Chittar Hill, the highest point in Jodhpur, is the iconic Umaid Bhawan palace. The Palace was built in 1930s at a slow pace as its initial objective was to provide employment to the famine-stricken farmers of the locale. This colossal palace now serves as a principal residence of the estwhile Jodhpur royal family and part of the palace is a luxurious heritage hotel managed by Taj group.
Whilst here, explore on foot the old city’s maze of medieval streets beaming with colourful bazaars well stocked with spices, bright embroided fabrics and local handmade puppets. The gleaming blue painted houses line these streets, hence Jodhpur’s designation as the ‘Blue City’.
