The blue city is one that would be a foodie paradise. Different types of street snacks from Pakodas to Lassi are a must try in this city especially around the Clock Tower.
People are friendly and the shopping for handicrafts from the National Handloom shop was good (decent quality, reasonable price). A place to visit during winters. For history, Mehrangarh fort offers a rich experience along with Jaswant Thada. Well maintained with proper rates specified for guides (no haggling, no touts thankfully). Umaid Bhavan palace in the night rivals any old European palace in its beauty. Definitely a must visit for those who want to travel around Rajasthan.
Jodhpur is definitely worth to be seen. We would particularly recommend the visit of the old city and the fort.
We did not enjoy the markets where sellers are constantly harrassing tourists. The 'omelette shop' is a creation of Lonely Planet, not worth the visit. Lassi and safran milk are great.
The roof top restaurant St Pal Haveli is worth a visit at night. Food great. And the Fort is lit up at nightime providing a wonderful view
Jodhpur is famous for its Fort which is the main attraction. Besides there are few other places with ancient temples, gardens and market for traditional indian stuff
Very beautiful city with lot of historic monuments. Well planned traffic and local people are friendly.
I would recommend anyone visiting Rajasthan to visit it once atleast.
Not much to see in the city. Can go around the city in a day if you start early in the morning. Most of the attractions are located close to eachother.
Like meharangarh fort, jastwant thada and rao jodha park (which is just ok, you may skip this), clock tower, sardar markrt and Pal haveli restaurant.
Get on an organised tour if you want, but for 2 or 4 people, its much better to simply hire a car and driver for the day.
The hotel tour manager will arrange this (but will rip you off at the same time) so use the internet, or simply ask a tuk tuk driver if he knows a taxi driver. Get the agreed price in writing.
Jodhpur is good for sight seeing, heritage hotels, forts, museums, traditional culture of India, monuments, clothes, shopping, food & handicrafts.
Stunning views of the blue city of Jodphur combined with spectacular architecture, and a wonderful museum.
the architecture of the eighteenth century take me back to medieval India. I luv this country
Its very nice historical city, people are very friendly & cooperative, very safe for couples and single traveller as well , Girls should take 3 stars and above hotels, most of the hotels are very safe.
life is easy here, summers are very hot avoid April to September.
Lots of spectacular history and locations to see Mandore Gardens was a pleasant way to meet Jodhpur locals out for an afternoon family gathering in the extensive gardens.
The Mehrangarh fort museum is a great way to get a view of Rajastan history
Jodhpur the city seems to be in time wrap. and has basic few interest spots and all del with the royalty or the kings and war.
the city is not easy to navigate as all you can depend on is the private auto and taxies which anyway fleece the person. But whatever it lacks is compensated with overtly friendly people that makes this more tourist safe than other places of interest in India.
Probably the most disgusting city I have travelled to in India. You can see all the sights in a day, I would not spend more then one night here.
I have been warned that Ajmer is even worst!
We stayed for one night to visit the fort which was great, but perhaps an extra day or half day would have been better.
A lovely city, nice scale, pretty.
Rajsthani culture, chaos in old city but fun to experience. lot of sight seeing, great food and shopping, warm people.
Don't miss the sadar bazar around clock tower , lassi at shri mishrilal hotel,cheap and yummy. Some of shops is fixed price.
Another still need bargain.
Petite ville du Rajasthan, mais fort symphatique. Son fort est hallucinant et il y aplein de bon restos.
Belle place pour relaxer et se détendre.
Jodphur is one of the famous city in India. You should visit this city. You can the famous Umaid Bawan Palace
If you can cope with a bit of chaos, the bazaar is great! Bishnoi village safari recommended (Yogi's guest house organises)
Jodhpur is a bustling modern Indian city with a traditional heart. The people are generally very amicable, and it is possible to make great friends here.
The central area is superb for shopping, and in particular there is a wide array of textiles available. Must-see areas of interest are the old town ('The Blue City'), Mehrangarh Fort, Sardar Market and the Jaswant Thada. The architecture in these locations is truly stunning. The local musicians are also of the highest quality, and it is worth seeking out both classical and folk music performances. Poverty is a widespread problem in Jodhpur, as in many parts of India, and there are a large number of homeless people living rough. Walking the streets late at night is not recommended. Traffic pollution is also a big issue, and it is important to watch out also when crossing the busy roads, since the traffic situation is crazy and most drivers do not obey any recogniseable rules of the road. Don't be afraid to barter with shopkeepers and taxi drivers: haggling is an accepted part of business transactions, and you will save yourself a good deal of money.
very nice city, quite atmospheric, locals seem friendly to tourists, great shopping for old(and "looking old") things from rajastan and the himalayas.
the fort is really amazing and a "MUST SEE" for any trip to this part of India
Shopping seemed easier and far less hassled than Jaipur. 'On the Rock' was a great place to eat and easy shopping.
it is beatiful: we visited the Fort three times, and enjoyed just walking around the city. Also, we took a tuktuk (the driver is connected to the hotel) to visit places outside, and it was worth every Rupia.
Hiring a Taxi seemed more expensive here compared to Jaisalmer or Jaipur. But shopping in Jodhpur seemed less expensive than Jaipur/Udaipur/Jaisalmer but you should know how to bargain.
Must see places: Mehrangarh fort, Umed Singh Memorial in marble, Umed Bhavan palace and museum, Rajastan Govt.
Not much to do there. You could see all the sights in one day pretty easily. But, it's a pretty great city.
