Jodhpur Travel Guide
 
Jodhpur city is the second largest city in the state of Rajasthan. This city is famous with the name the Sun City because the city enjoys bright and sunny weather all year. 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 AD. This city was on the silk route of the 16th century and hence was host to a number of travellers. In Jodhpur, the genius of its sculptors comes to life in its exquisite palaces, forts, temples and havelis, which stand testimony to the imperial grandeur. The most alluring part of Jodhpur is the traditional lifestyle, festivity and the smiling people who treasure this former princely state. This is why; Jodhpur is a popular tourist destination today. Come and explore Jodhpur with its amazing forts and other tourist spots.
