Head out in the early morning with your English-speaking driver on a full-day sightseeing tour of Jodhpur city.
See Mehrangarh Fort, an important historical landmark and a popular Jodhpur attraction. Situated on a 150-meter-high hill, the fort was built in 1459 by Rao Jodha, the chief of the Rathore clan. You’ll find numerous beautiful palaces, galleries, ancient temples, and a museum inside the complex.
Visit Jaswant Thada, a 19th-century royal cenotaph. The shrine was built in the memory of Maharaja Jaswant II in 1899. In addition to the monument, the site features spectacular gardens.
Umaid Bhawan Palace is another major landmark in Jodhpur. The elegant palace was built during the 20th century in order to provide employment for 3,000 famine stricken residents of Jodhpur. It has recently been transformed into a 5-star heritage palace hotel.
