"The Blue City" Top 5 Page for this destination Jodhpur by Canadienne

Jodhpur Travel Guide: 368 reviews and 1,065 photos

Jodhpur is perhaps best known for its majestic fort and, indeed, it must be seen to be believed. But, my best memories of the city are of the people.

The city is a fascinating mix of the sights, sounds and smells of India, without being overrun with tourists. I stayed two days in December, when my friend fell ill and we had to stop travelling. . .then spent three more days in January, as a "scheduled" stop on my route with other girlfriends.

We would go back in an instant!

Pros and Cons

    Opium addiction had been considerded a reason for the faded glory of Marwar and Mewar.Every year on Akha Teej thousands of small children got married in full media glare.Its changing but too slow.

    Fascinating details, Stevie ... you seem to understand India a lot better than most Indians :) No cover charges for getting to see Salman Rushdie and Bride aye ... I am surprised :))) ... wonderful pages.

    Very interesting stuff here!! It seems that you were really experiencing things at 'ground level' on this trip! You look good in Indian dress! Your 'auto rickshaw' tip made me laugh, my wife says I drive like that regularly!
