Jodhpur

Discover iconic Jodhpur

A dazzling blaze of blue on the eastern edge of the Thar Desert, Jodhpur is strategically located on a medieval trade route. The city houses the most recent and one of the largest residential palaces in India, the Umaid Bhawan Palace.

Constructed over a span of 15 years, from 1929 to 1943 (and now partly a luxury heritage hotel,) the project was initially conceived as a public relief and employment works project during a long period of drought.

The Mehrangarh Fort that towers over the city is one of the most majestic of Rajasthan’s forts and is now one of India’s finest private museums. Its forbidding ramparts are in sharp contrast to the flamboyantly decorated palaces that lie within.
