Jodhpur City Guide | India Travel Video in Rajasthan

Join us as we visit Jodhpur in this city travel guide covering the best things to do in the ‘Blue City’ of Rajasthan, India. Our travel video in Rajasthan (राजस्थान ਰਾਜਸਥਾਨ) covering the ‘sun city’ focusses on visiting Mehrangarh Fort (मेहरानगढ़ का दुर्ग) for some incredible views of the city and heading over to the Sardar Market (सरदार बाजार) nearby the Ghanta Ghar clock tower of Rajasthan where you can find great places to shop and grab Rajasthani cuisine (राजस्थानी खाना) and a saffron lassi. We especially recommend Jhankar restaurant where we had the best Rajasthani Thali (थाली) and regular Thali during our entire India travels. Jodhpur (जोधपुर) is also worth exploring on foot or tuk-tuk where you can just get lost down the myriad of colorful alleys. For dinner we suggest rooftop views at a restaurant where you can clearly see Mehrangarh Fort (मेहरानगढ़ का दुर्ग) lit up at night. It is just as spectacular by night as it is by day.

Jodhpur City Guide | India Travel Series in Rajasthan Video Transcript:

Our first stop in Jodhpur was Mehrangarh Fort, which is one of the biggest forts in India. The fort sits on a rocky hill overlooking the city and it pretty much dominates the skyline with its imposing walls. Admission to the fort itself is free, but if you’ve come all the way here, you’ll want to pay the admission to visit the palaces which now act as a museum.

Within the fort (मेहरानगढ़ का दुर्ग) you can also visit the ramparts, see the old cannons, and get some overhead views of the city which will quickly help you realize why Jodhpur (जोधपुर) is nicknamed the Blue City.

Then, after all that food and drink, it was finally time to get lost in the blue maze that is Jodhpur.

So right now we have ended up at the Sardar Market (सरदार बाजार) just around the clock tower (Ghanta Ghar). And I would say this is both a local market and a tourist market. You can get produce and like everyday things. Yeah, you see a lot of everyday like market stalls but you also see some more ones that are geared for tourists such as the ones where you can souvenirs, carpets and saris.

Jhankar in Jodhpur (जोधपुर). Oh, it was so good Actually it was one of the best meals we’ve had in India so far. Yeah. So we are heading back there for dinner. And it is all about Thali (थाली) tonight. We are going to get an original Thali (थाली) and a Rajasthani Thali (राजस्थानी खाना). Because we are in Rajasthan (राजस्थान ਰਾਜਸਥਾਨ) and they have a special Thali so we can’t wait to try that out. Now it is off to find a little tuk-tuk. Alright, lead the way. Lead the way.

And that’s it for Jodhpur! Our two-day visit was short and sweet, but it was enough to get a taste of what the city is all about.

So that is a wrap from Jodhpur (जोधपुर). So we had a really good time in the Blue City. Um, it was only two days but I felt like we did quite a bit. Did you enjoy it? Yeah, the fort (मेहरानगढ़ का दुर्ग) was magnificent and the blue city was all it was supposed to be. Yes, so now we’re moving on to Jaipur. We’re just waiting at the train station. So we’re going to catch our train. It is about a 6 hour journey. So relatively not too long but uh yeah can’t wait to update you when we get there. Ciao for now.

This is part of our Travel in India video series showcasing Indian food, Indian culture and Indian cuisine.

Th Jains do not eat garlic, onions [ ditto, 90% of brahmans], and the really orthodox, nothing growing underground, like potato, ginger, you name it!! The skinny bean-like things were sangri, the dried green pods of KHEJRI, Prosopis cinerea, a leguminous tree found from Rajasthan to Yemen, and truly miraculous, as are several such woody legumes from arid lands the world over.

You guys should consider doing some videos on such miraculous plants from different families, as they grow in Chile, USA, Mexico, Africa, India, etc. and save, nourish, nurture, billions of lives. People could become so much more sensitive to the work being done on these food plants and what more could be done. Only when global citizens add their concerns to governments around th world shall we see swords beaten into ploughshares, and every person under their own fig tree! Nice image, eh? Would b happy to help, sans any obligations.

We have some serious water and soil crises going on all over that has not escaped your notice, and the Great Lakes will become the great prize, quite as much as the great lakes of oil are today. So, Canada, N. America will become sites of conflict in your lifetimes, Sam!! Allende's Chile will follow us home! But we can do our mite, and be happy we did not just sit back and watch the tamasha, a word you will doubtless have learned by now in India. Thanks for all the hard work creating these videos, and the unfailing good cheer. Vaya con Dios, sans ceviche, yikes!!
