“Pink is the navy blue of India.”
~Diana Vreeland

Jodhpur offers an abundance of history and a rich culture, from the imposing Mehrangarh Fort that towers above the city to a centuries-old polo tradition that reveals the playful nature of the spirited city. Founded in 1459 by Rao Jodha, the aptly named Jodhpur is now the second largest city in the northwestern Indian state of Rajasthan. The gem of the city is the aforementioned fort, which stands guard 400-feet above the city, encompasses several breathtaking palaces and offers views of the azure-hued houses in Jodhpur’s infamous “Blue City.”

Jodhpur lies in the Thar Desert, resulting in an arid climate that remains pleasant year-round. Dubbed the “Sun City,” Jodhpur’s sunny disposition attracts tourists throughout the year, but October through March is the most popular time to visit. The city is easily navigated by taxi, while rickshaws make the most of the inner city’s narrow alleyways. Jodpur’s central location in Rajasthan befits easy travel within the state, and the popular Jaipur and Udaipur are both a four-hour drive away (driving time is relative in the expansive, spread-out country.)
