Visit this former abode of the Rajput rulers in Jodhpur and travel back to the ancient days of Rajput reign. From your hotel, you can hop on a rickshaw or a cab that will take you through the meandering roads to reach this famous fort in Jodhpur. Perched on a hilltop around 125 metres high, the fort will open a whole new world to you. Firstly, you can spot seven enormous gates, each built by a separate ruler. If you look at the second gate closely, you will still find imprints of cannonballs that were fired by Jaipur armies during a war. Quite an intriguing sight! Oh, and before you enter the fort, don’t forget to see the gorgeous Jodhpur city from the top. The skyline of the city is a vibrant sight worth admiring from such heights.
Now, let’s enter the fort! Once you are inside the fort, you can start exploring the many palaces where kings used to reside with their families. You can spot the intricate carvings on the walls, ceilings and pillars, that look as good as they’re new. The finesse of the carvings and the architectural creativity will leave you spellbound. Then, head to the museum inside the palace to see displays of ancient relics and commodities used by rulers and soldiers. A little suggestion! If possible, come to this one of the most famous places to visit in Jodhpur in October so that you can witness the renowned Rajasthan International Folk Festival.
