Hello everyone

So everyone who is anyone planning to travel Jodhpur (Rajasthan) here are the must visit places, as suggested by a local from Jodhpur and that is obviously me. So here is the list :

Mehrangarh Fort:
The most magnificent fort in Jodhpur is the Mehrangarh Fort. It is situated on a 150m high hill. Rao Jodha, the then chief of Rathore clan, constructed it in 1459. There are a number of attractions within the fort like several palaces, galleries, a museum, temples and so on. There is a restaurant too where you can enjoy dinner, wine whatever you like. Its the place that will make your moment special

Umaid Bhavan Palace:
One of the fascinating palaces of Jodhpur is the Umaid Bhavan palace. Maharaja Umaid Singh constructed it in 20th century. A part of the palace has now been converted into a hotel and a museum. If you have enough cash you might want to stay there and feel like a "Maharaja" for a night. But the palace is on the list of one of the most beautiful palaces in the world, so you can't miss it.

Jaswant Thada:
Jaswant Thada lies to the left of the Mehrangarh fort complex. It is a royal cenotaph made up of white marble. It was built to commemorate Maharaja Jaswant Singh.

Clock Tower:
Also known as Ghanta Ghar. Its one of the things you cant even miss if you try to. This is right in the middle of Sardar Market which is a very vibrant market selling everything. Lots of activity, great street food area. This market is a real buzz with a great feel. Glass bangles and lots of great souvenirs. Click a photo or two, its like the Eiffel Tower , but smaller and not located in France and is a clock tower, but not like Big ben. Hope you get it.
