Jodhpur is actually blue. You will get to know this when you would be in the buzzling and glittering old city of Jodhpur. Some say that the on the orders of the founder of Jodhpur, Rao Jodha, the city was painted blue. Others say that the blue houses belong to the brahmins where other non brahmins too got involved in the act. There is yet another theory that says blue tint repels insects. Here stands the mighty and muscular Mehrangarh- a formidable and impressive hilltop fort. A series of gates lead to the Fort Jayapol built by Maharaja Man Singh in 1806 and the Fatehpol or Victory Gate, erected by Maharaja Ajit Singh to celebrate his victory over the Mughals. The main gate is the Lahapol, an iron gate besides which there are 15 hand prints which are the Sati Marks of Maharaja Man Singhs widows who threw themselves upon his funeral pyre in 1843. Inside the fort, visit the palaces Moti Mahal or Pearl Palace, the Sukh Mahal or Pleasure Palace and the Phool Mahal or Flower Palace. Continue the tour to visit the Jaswant Thada, a marble cenotaph built in 1899 as a memorial to Maharaja Jaswant Singh II. In the evening, stroll around in the vibrant markets of Jodhpur, to take back home antiques, bandhini, footwears, Mathaniyas red chillies and more.
After breakfast, check out from the hotel and transfers to Airport/ Railway Station for your onward journey with memories of ALifetimeTrip.
