Jodhpur in less than 24 hours! [video]

We didn’t get much time to spend in Jodhpur. We arrived very late in the evening, had the following day to squeeze in as much as possible, then we were on a train to Delhi to board our flight out of the country.

So what did we get up to? After breakfast we walked up the hill to the Mehrangarh Fort, the imposing building that dominates the skyline, it’s huge shadow cast over the Blue City. It was a little expensive when you include entry costs and fees to use your cameras, but the museum and interiors were beautiful.

After lunch we ventured into the craziness of the Clock Tower and Sadar Market. It’s a popular area for tourists ready to spend some money, and you can get Rajasthani textiles, clay figurines, miniature camels and elephants, marble inlay work and classic silver jewellery.

There’s plenty of other things to see and do, but our time was limited so we didn’t get to see as much as we would have liked. But we feel only another day would have been needed to see the main attractions.
