Pushkar - Jodhpur
After leisurely breakfast, depart for Jodhpur. It is also known as ‘Blue City of Rajasthan’. On arrival at Jodhpur, first check in at the hotel. Relaxing a bit, proceed on a guided sightseeing tour of Jodhpur that comprises visits to Mehrangarh Fort and Jaswant Thada, in
in addition to exploration of colorful market. The "Blue City" is an important tourist destination thanks to historical temples and palaces, as well as majestic Mehrangarh Fort that dominates from a height of 130 meters. Also known as the ‘sun city’, the ideal way to visit it is to walk the winding streets of the old city, stocking up on perfumes, folkloric clothes and intoxicating spices. Among the many attractions of Jodhpur, Mehrangarh, the most striking & impressive fort, is still run by the maharaja of Jodhpur. This building extends over a hill. In order to visit it, one passes through seven gates, some
of which still bear the traces of bombs shelled on the fort during wars. The interior of the fort consists of a dense network of courtyards and palaces, splendid examples of Rajput architecture. One of the buildings also houses an interesting museum on the ornaments of Indian royalty.
Another famous tourist attraction in Jodhpur is Jaswant Thada. This memorial is dedicated to Maharaja Jaswant Singh II with special white marble domes. The cenotaph was erected in 1899. Later, the area turned out to be a royal crematorium. Nearby are built other three cenotaphs. Jaswant Thada, a richly decorated piece of architecture with refined marble artistry, also offers a panoramic view of the surrounding area. Later, in the evening, return to hotel for overnight stay.
