Jodhpur On a Budget
Jodhpur Mehrangarh Fort, Jodhpur, India
Jodhpur is a city in the Rajasthan state of India. This city is located on the outskirts of the Thar Desert and is known for having sunshine almost every day of the year. Rao Jodha, an ancient Rajput chief, founded the city in 1459 AD. Many of the houses in the city are shades of blue, hence the reason that the city is sometimes referred to as the Blue City.
The main sight in Jodhpur is the Mehrangarh Fort. It is the largest fort in the entire state of Rajasthan and was founded back in 1458. The fort sits upon a very tall hill, which is probably the reason that it was never taken by force. Today, it offers beautiful views of the entire city. It is free to get up to fort to see the views, however, there is a small cost if you wish to go inside to see the palace and its museums. Within the palace, you can see many extravagant rooms, halls and temples. For example, Moti Mahal is a hall that is completely pearl colored with glass windows. Sheesh Mahal is a hall made completely of mirrors and Chamunda Mataji Temple is a beautiful temple hidden away within the palace that was once devoted to Rao Jodha's favorite goddess.

Just a kilometer down the hill from the Mehrangarh Fort is the Jaswant Thada. These are royal tombs made of marble that sit on a lake. The lake is completely waste free as well, making it a very picturesque sight. The Umaid Bhawan Palace, which was only completed in 1944, is another beautiful sight. Half of this building has been made into a five-star hotel, while the other half is where the Maharaja of Jodhpur lives. For a small fee, you can go inside to see the hotel or the museum where there are vintage cars on display.

There are also some incredible natural sights in the city; Balsamand Lake, Kailana Lake, and Gulab Sagar Lake are a few. Temples are plentiful in the city as well; Baba Ramdev Temple, Pal Balaji Temple, and Ganesh Temple are just a few that can be found within the city.

While visiting the Mehrangarh Fort, you can go on a zip line tour above the Chokelao Gardens that are within the fort. The company that runs this activity is called Flying Fox. Another activity that takes place at the Mehrangarh Fort is the Rajasthan International Folk Festival, which takes place every year during October.

A cultural activity to take part in is taking a tour of one of the Bishnoi villages. The men and women are in traditional clothing are very open to interacting with the visitors of their village. You can also set up a tour through the countryside after visiting the village, where you are bound to see herds of black buck running freely.
