Rajasthan Tourism: The Best Of Jodhpur In 2 Days
Rajasthan, the Largest State in India, has the most extensive collection of architecture, heritage, greenery, hospitality, history, adventure, culinary diversity, and whatnot. But unfortunately, one of the architecturally wealthiest and least known Rajasthani cities is Jodhpur. But I will try to change this fact. So, if you have planned a short itinerary to the Blue City in Rajasthan, you are in for the Best of Jodhpur in 2 Days.
Ziplining: Also known as the flying fox, this is the craziest adventure that you can have in Jodhpur. Where, you ask? At its magnificent Mehrangarh Fort, the activity is as grand as the fort and can take up to 2 hours. Sliding down a line with a harness, you are amazed at the spectacular views of the fort’s lakes, bastions, walls, and of course, the bird’s eye view of the city.

Mehrangarh Fort: Is it a coincidence or fate that I mentioned ziplining at Mehrangarh Fort because the fort itself is next on our list? The grand structure of stones and rocks overlooks the city from its top. The views from up there are as extraordinary as the fort. Trust me; you will never forget the experience.

Umaid Bhawan Palace: Return to the time of the Rajput kings and queens at the Umaid Bhawan Palace; the palace is both a museum and a king’s residence built by Maharaja Umaid Singh. Now it is owned by his grandson, Gaj Singh. A portion of the grand structure is now a heritage hotel, perfect for staying amid gardener greenery.

Mandore Gardens: If you want a place to explore near Udaipur, I will give you the Mandore Gardens, a small and beautiful village only 9 Km from the city. The site is a peak of history with old structures such as the Mandore Fort, Mandore Palace, Ravana Temple, and rich trimmed gardens.
Tour Suggestion :-
Jodhpur Stepwell (Toorji-Ka-Jhalara): Built-in 1740, the Toorji-Ka-Jhalara or the Jodhpur Stepwell is still preserved to date. Not only does it look brilliantly engineered, but it will also inform you of how the people maintained water then. Truly, if you want an incredible Rajasthan Tour, I insist you include it in your Jodhpur itinerary.

Ghantaghar: When I first visited the Ghantaghar in Jodhpur, the first thing that came to me was “every city has its own” the Ghantaghar is another beautiful architectural marvel, built around 20 decades ago, and it has a striking resemblance to the Big Ben, but this one is much broader and unique.

Nirali Dhani: If you are looking for a place to stay in Jodhpur, I recommend the Nirali Dhani, meaning uniquely rich, and indeed, it is. The heritage hotel is rich in ethnic and cultural hospitality, which is very popular.
Shopping in Sardar Market: Want to bring back home some souvenirs? Then, I recommend shopping your heart away at the Sardar Market. It is the largest marketplace in the city, which has everything Rajasthani available, plus street food to satisfy your taste buds.

Camping in Osian: Welcome to Osian, an old desert town situated 69 Km south of the city. It’s also called the Khajuraho of Rajasthan because of its 18 Hindu and Jain temples built by the Gurjara Pratihara Dynasty, but more on that later. Coming back to the topic, if you love camping among the golden dunes, it offers various campsites that give you the Thar Desert-like experience.

Masuria Hill Garden: The naturally scenic rocky structure – of the Masuriya Hills has a reward for tourists in the form of its garden. It is a vantage point from which you can see stunning 360 views of Jodhpur. The many structures there, including statues of a local deity and Veer Durgadas Rathore – a beloved Marwari hero, are worth seeing.
