The most untypical thing that you will spot in this town is the blue colour of the houses in the city. One has to see these from their own eyes to believe it.


Despite being a former principality of the British, Jodhpur is quite traditional looking. It does not show a lot of Western influence, rather is typical of the Rajasthani style and culture that is famous everywhere in the world. Men usually wear yellow and saffron turbans, with a dhoti and kurta, and women bright coloured sarees with earthen pots on their heads.

Whenever you take a trip to Jodhpur, make sure you try the street food. You can shop for bangles, textiles, and spices, and even bargain like a local. All you need to keep in mind is the weather conditions before heading out.

So, you can also plan a complete Rajasthan tour instead of just spending time in Jodhpur!

    • Trip to Jodhpur

      I have been to Rajasthan during 1st week of August 2019. It is really a great experience and all my family members are happy with this trip. Specifically, our travel agent, Ashok from Taj Holiday Mart has taken care every thing and booked nice hotels and arranged a nice Innova Crysta car with excellent driver, Prahlad Sharma. I have been to 3 cities in Rajasthan, Jaipur, Jodhpur and Udaipur. Traditional Heritage hotel at Jaipur and The Ummed at Jodhpur are really excellent in all means. Brahma Niwas hotel at Udaipur is also very good with spacious rooms and excellent location, but very small hotel and needs to be improved in Breakfast spread. Ashok and his team has called us every alternate day and verified about services. Car driver Prahlad ji is very nice person and he has clear knowledge about site seeing places in Rajasthan. Prahlad ji is very polite and maintains time very well. He has guided us very well in all aspects and also covered Pushkar on our request which was not in the plan. Overall I am very happy with this trip and my sincere thanks to Ashok and team of Taj Holiday Mart .

      Our trip to Rajasthan was very enjoyable. The local sightseeing tours were good at Jaipur and Udaipur, but our guide at Jodhpur was not very professional, he was very rude and inflexible.

      Trip to Jodhpur and Jaisalmer arranged by Tripsailer.com was good. I stayed for 4 days 3 Nights. Can service was the best. He showed us all the places and guided well. Hotels in Jodhpur and Jaisalmer wer good apart from food. Food were not well. Sultan Camp at Sam Sand dunes was the best part. Food not good but best of the traditional Cultural program in night.

    • Trip to Jodhpur

      9 days trip to Rajasthan -> udaipur, jodhpur, jaisalmer, bikaner, pushkar, Ajmer and Jaipur. We were told that the driver will be familiar with all places to visit but unfortunately he had no idea about any city other than udaipur. Additionally, he did not even have a map. He was dependent on the guest to help him with directions on mobile. Because of this we wanted a lot of time figuring things out which could have otherwise been utilized for site seeing. Neither the agent nor the driver informed us about timings of important places that close as early as 4.30pm. Evenings wasted! Overall experience is that I ended up planning activities of the day instead of relaxing n enjoying the trip.

    FAQ's of Jodhpur

    Read on to find out why our customers love us!

     

     

    Unlike other cities of Rajasthan, Jodhpur doesn't have many activities to do than sightseeings and desert safari. A couple or three days should be enough for a visit to this city.

    Jodhpur is a pretty safe place to be in but don't stay out till too late at night and don't get too friendly with the locals either. Keep your distance and be alert at all times and appear confident and don't look afraid or lost, irrespective of whom you meet. If you keep your wits about you, you should be fine in most cases.

     

    Some of the major places one should visit in the city are Umaid Bhawan Palace, Mehrangarh Fort, Jaswant Thada, Mahamandir, Clock Tower, Rao Jodha Desert Rock Park, Mandore Gardens and Balsamand Lake and Garden.

     

    Jodhpur has its famous Mirchi Vada, Mawa Kachori and Pyaaz Kachori. Almost as popular and a must try item is Makhaniya Lassi.

    A lot of tourists like to stay in one of the numerous heritage hotels in Jodhpur, which give an authentic feel of staying in an old haveli. For those who want to stay in luxury, Jodhpur in fact has some of the best hotels in the country. Notably, the Umaid Bhavan Palace which was originally used by the Royal family as their palace is now a heritage hotel, managed by the Taj group - a night's stay here would cost around 5000 per night.
