  • The Jaswant Thada is an excellent example of architecture with intricately carved sheets of marble
  • The Mehrangarh Fort is one of the largest forts in India

Jodhpur, also known as the ‘Blue City’ because of the blue walls of its houses, is most famous for the impressive Mehrangarh Fort. Built on a hill and 400 feet above the city, the fort is one of the largest in India. Inside the fort are magnificent palaces made of intricately carved panels and traditional latticed windows and doors. The Phool Mahal (Flower Palace) even has a ceiling decorated with gold filigree. The splendour in which the kings of Marwar, who built the fort, lived is evident in every inch of this huge complex.

This tour gives you the opportunity to see the architectural beauty of Jodhpur’s forts and palaces which are considered some of the finest in Rajasthan.

Itinerary

You will be picked up from the airport/your hotel in Jodhpur and will travel in an air-conditioned vehicle Mehrangarh Fort which is built on a hill-top. Accompanied by a local English-speaking guide, enter the fort after crossing seven formidable gates! Explore the fort and see the beautiful palaces which house some of the memorabilia of the royal families of Marwar. Your guide will tell you more about the history of this fort whose foundation was laid by Rao Jodha in 1459. You will see:

Phool Mahal: Arguably the grandest of the chambers, it was in all likelihood a private and exclusive chamber for dancing girls who danced for the pleasure of the kings under a ceiling filled with gold filigree. Other chambers like the Moti Mahal (Palace of Pearls), the Sheesh Mahal (Palace of Mirrors), the Sileh Khana and Daulat Khana (House of Money) have also been made with traditional Rajasthani latticed doors and windows and carved panels.

Jaswant Thada: On your way up to the Mehrangarh Fort, stop and appreciate the graceful and intricately carved marble cenotaph dedicated to an erstwhile ruler, Maharaja Jaswant Singh II. Jaswant Thada is the traditional cremation ground of the rulers of Jodhpur.

You will then be dropped back to your hotel/airport where the tour ends.
