When in Jodhpur, exploring the magnificent Mehrangarh Fort is unarguably one of the first things to do for tourists. Beneath this colossal citadel lies the Blue City that has many other fascinating places to visit such as Jaswant Thada, Umaid Bhawan Palace, Government Museum, Mandore Gardens and Balsamand Lake. Rao Jodha Desert Rock Park and Machiya Safari Park introduce tourists to the flora and fauna of the region while spending a day at Bishnoi Village can be a great cultural experience.
Besides natural attractions and historical places, Jodhpur also has revered shrines like Mahamandir Temple and Chamunda Mata Temple, just waiting to be explored. There are several activities in the city for adventure seekers too such as zip lining with Jodhpur Flying Fox and rappelling in Soorsagar. Shopping enthusiasts must head to Ghanta Ghar, Nai Sarak or other street markets to buy items like Rajasthani handicrafts, mojaris, flavoured teas, antiques, spices, tie-and-dye fabrics and souvenirs.
A trip to Jodhpur is incomplete without indulging in street food delicacies like makhani lassi, mirchi vada, mawa kachori, and dal baati choorma or enjoying a candle-lit dinner at Darikhana. If the time allows, don’t miss to attend the colourful and vibrant cultural events and folk festivals of Jodhpur.
