What to expect
Jodhpur is far more than initially meets the eye. From your first step into this city, you'll feel that sense of history permeating through every corner. Your tour begins in Jodhpur's Rock Garden, also known as Rao Jodha Desert Rock Park. This 72-hectare park, not far from Mehrangarh Fort, is as historic as it is mysterious, full of myths that your guide will tell you about. From here, the next discovery is the water canals of the city, which stand as the major water source for the landlocked city. As you head to the Old City of Jodhpur, you will also receive priceless insight with regards to local culture and customs from your guide, as well as events in history or religious reasons that shaped them to be this way. In the Old City itself, also known as the Blue City, the opportunity to learn of a long, rich history presents itself, as you discover not just why the city is painted blue, but also the story behind its architectural harmony and how it had come to be built. Heading into the markets, the sight of the locals bustling about and going through their daily lives will give you a peek into local culture and even see the wares sold in this area of India. At the Medieval Temples, you'll not just see these regal, revered structures, but also have a look into the religious culture and temperament within the city and among its people. Your tour concludes with a trip to a 400-year-old house, also called a Haveli, for tea and snacks, and afterward your guide will help you arrange for transportation and directions back to your hotel.
