sand dunes and thorny vegetation of Thar desert towers a fort, 120
meters above the plain. The fort over looks the imperial city of
Jodhpur which is part of the Desert Tourist Triangle. The old Jodhpur
city is surrounded by a 10 Km long wall with eight gates serving as
entrances. The new city is settled around this walled area. The Maruthal
or land of death , came into life when the Rathores' of Kanauj moved
in. But the city of Jodhpur was founded by Rao Jodhaji in 1459. This
city was on the silk route of the 16th century and hence was host to
a number of travellers.
SHOPPING: The Sadar Market near the clock tower gives immense shopping pleasure to the local as well as the visitors. The colourful but hectic bazaar consists of many narrow lanes, lined with tiny shops. Look for the tie & dye textiles, embroidered leather shoes, lacquerware, antiques, carpets and puppets. Here one can buy exquisite Rajasthani textiles, clay figurines, miniature camels and elephants, marble inlay work and classic silver jewellery.
THERE: Jodhpur has its own Airport and so
flight services are available. The city is also well connected by the
railway lines and trains are available for other major cities in the
country from here. The 'Palace on Wheels' also visits this city of
Royal splendour. The state transport has bus services from other
cities of the state and some services are interstate too.
