About Clock Tower, Jodhpur Rajasthan
Clock Tower Jodhpur
The Clock Tower in Jodhpur is a magnificent landmark in the old city, and one of the most recognizable monuments in Jodhpur. The Clock Tower, named as ‘Ghanta Ghar’ by the locals, which is almost a literal translation, is three-storey tall and has a giant English style clock at the top which is still ticking today.
History of Clock Tower (Ghanta Ghar)
The Ghanta Ghar Jodhpur is popular for the peculiar way in which it has been constructed. With clock towers, the architecture tends to be more Gothic in its style. However, over the course of time as the building was undertaken by Maharaja Sardar Singh in the late 1890s, the Ghanta Ghar acquired a lot more Indian aspects that can still be witnessed today. Looking more like a minaret than a square clock tower, it is a true architectural marvel and worth visiting for anyone traveling to Jodhpur.

Grkadekar's 6 days trip to JodhpurThe overall service was good. And all the arrangements made was good .hotels was very good.one comments about the hotels was the Vinayak desert camp though it was good , we were given tent with out geyser. We were not knowing about this. Even if we have to pay for tgat , the availability of the same should have been told to us. Once again over all experience was very good . I definitely recommend both travel triangle and asiago travels....govind

Vagisha's 4 days trip to Jodhpurone out of three hotels was not that much good. But it okay for one night stay.
Rakesh's 10 days trip to JodhpurHotels were good but services in the hotels were not up to mark - particularly Hotel Radisson Jaipur City Centre. Suryagarh and Samsara Desert Camp.
Suman's 5 days trip to Jodhpurjaisalmer was overall very beautiful experience . we would have been more comfortable if the agent would have worked more on our itinerary and have asked for our food preferences. we could hardly spend time in jodhpur and kept rushing from one place to another.

Kshitija's 5 days trip to JodhpurThe hotels were very nice, except for the Udaipur. Nothing to compliant here. Staff at Tourepedeia - Great. We just faced an issue at hotel while check out. The payment was not done or the payment receipt was not shared with the hotel so we had to wait and contact Tourepedia multiple times. Driver - Mr.Kushal Singh ji, The Best !! Could not have got any better driver. He guided us and helped us find authentic food in every city. All and all it was great experience. Rajasthan is splendid ! First experience with Travel Traingle and Tourepedia were nice. Will definitely try it again.
