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.
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.
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.
Jodhpur has its famous Mirchi Vada, Mawa Kachori and Pyaaz Kachori. Almost as popular and a must try item is Makhaniya Lassi.
Many people consider Jodhpur as the cultural capital of Rajasthan. Due to its cultural ambiance and plethora of historical destinations, it is definitely a must-visit place in Jodhpur.
