Travel guide to Jodhpur
Looking at God...
Looking at God...
Standing at the edge of the Thar Desert, Jodhpur is the second largest city in Rajasthan after Jaipur. According to one fable when Lord Rama, hero of the Hindu epic Ramayana wanted to cross the ocean to rescue his wife Sita, who had been abducted by the demon-king Ravana, he was turned back by the Sea-God. Furious, Rama mounted his arrow to dry up the ocean forcing the Lord of the Sea to retreat. However, the arrow once mounted had to be discharged, and Rama fired it into another body of water located in western Rajasthan, thus drying it up and earning the name - the land of the dead.

The city of Jodhpur is dominated by the massive Meherangarh Fort that sits atop a sheer rocky ridge located at the centre of the city spreading over 5km atop a 125m high hill. Its walls, which are up to 36m high and 21m wide protect some of the most beautiful and historic palaces in Rajasthan. From here, you will be sucked in by the breath-taking view of the Blue City.
