Jodhpur, city of perennial sunshine is known by many names - ‘Sun City’, ‘Blue City, ‘Gateway to Thar’. Many of the houses in the old city are painted blue to retain coolness, and from an aerial view, you can see how the city got its most popular name. Palaces, forts, temples and a bustling market rub shoulders with prestigious educational and research institutes, making it an interesting amalgam of both ancient and modern worlds. Once the capital of the kingdom of Marwar, it is one of the most enchanting cities in India. Leisure activities Mehrangarh Fort, one of the largest forts in India has 7 gates, each with a significant name of its own. Several palaces, courtyards, and exhibits of the Rathore clan including arms, miniatures, costumes, including a large selection of howdahs and palanquins are found at the end of a long, winding road from the city of Jodhpur. Legends and curses swirl around this mysterious stronghold, which also preserves old cannons and provides a breathtaking view of the city. The 16th century Achal Nath Shivalaya temple, dedicated to Shiva, is a tribute to the architectural grandeur of the Hindu religion. The temple of Vishnu in the ancient city of Osian, noted for its elaborate architecture was constructed in the 9th century and is worth a visit. A desert ride on the back of a swaying camel is an exciting add-on. The Ghanta Ghar or Clock Tower is a popular landmark of the city.
