Jodhpur is the second largest city of Rajasthan and thankfully it has remained undefiled by the unorganized and unplanned developments. The city holds in its lap the view to the incredible past of India. If you are wondering where the jodhpurs pants got their name from, it is indeed this city. These unique looking pants were designed by Pratap Singbh, who was the son of Maharaja of Jodhpur. When England’s Queen visited the city in 1897, these pants were worn by Pratap’s polo team.
The landscape of Jodhpur is filled with the blue houses, buildings and monuments. However, unlike the Pink City Jaipur, Jodhpur is not officially called the ‘Blue City’ of India. These buildings were originally painted in blue to signify the stronghold of Brahmins, which is deemed as the highest Hindu caste.
Some of the places that you must visit when you are in the city include Mehrangharh Fort, Flying Fox of Jaipur, Jaswant Thada, Rock Park, old city markets, Umaid Palace, and many more.
Mehrangarh, which was virtually impregnable during the rule of the royals, is one of the most sought after tourist attractions of Jodhpur. If you are looking for some adventure, then you can go for zip lining at the Flying Fox.
