History of Jodhpur | Tourist attractions in Jodhpur | Tour to Jodhpur Tour to  Mehrangarh Fort, Jodhpur

Situated at the edge of the Thar desert in Rajashthan, the city is like an oasis in the vast desert with a variety of thorny shrubs all over the area. The Rajput chief Rao Jodha founded the city of Jodhpur in 1459. Earlier, it was the capital of the Marwar state of Rajasthan.

It has a typical desert climate which is dry and hot. The ideal time to visit this place, therefore, is between November and March. The animal species are typical of the area which can suvive in arid and desert conditions.

For those who love history, Jodhpur is a must visit on your India tours and travel. The city is famous for its magnificent forts and palaces. A 10-km-long wall made of stone surrounds the city. Eight doors stand all through the wall leading to different places of Jodhpur. The city has about 100 towers most of which are surrounded by defensive battlements.

The Mehrangarh Fort, is one place which is on the itinerary of every visitor to Jodhpur. The Fort is a living testimony of the military might of the Rajputs. With the strategically located cannons on the walls, the fort is spread over an area of 5 km at an altitude of about 125 meters. Thousands of tourists visit this fort every year to have a glimpse of the artillery system of the Rajput warriors. A bird's eye view of the city from above the fort is fascinating.

Umaid Bhawan, the only 20th-century-built palace, was constructed to give employment to the famine-struck population of Jodhpur. Made of sandstone, it took 16 years to complete.

Jodhpur celebrates the Marwar festival with great fun and joy. It is a two-day program of fun, folk music, folk dance and folklore. Nagpanchami, the worship of the king of the serpents, is also celebrated with enthusiasm.
