My visit to Jodhpur was indeed an enthralling experience and I couldn’t wait to pen down my thoughts about the city. The eatables and monuments in the city are the most interesting things in the city. As I enjoy food and trying out different cuisines, the lovely Rajasthani cuisine was a major attraction for me when I went to Jodhpur.
The best place in Jodhpur, where we can try out the yummy Rajasthani cuisine is Janta Mishtan bhandar. The various dishes we get there are pyaj kachori, khaman, mawa kachori and mirchiwads.
Jaswant Thada was the cremation ground for the royal families of Jodhpur. It was built by Maharaja Sardar Singh in the 19th century. It was built in the memory of Maharaja Jaswant Singh II, by his son, Maharaja Sardar Singh. Jaswant Thada includes terrace gardens, beautifully carved gazebos and a small lake. The monument was built out of thin sheets of marble. The marbles sheets were polished till they became thin and translucent. When the sun rays fall on these marble sheets, it seems as if the monument is glowing from within. Jaswant Thada is definitely one of the most beautiful monuments that I have seen.
The Umaid bhavan palace is one of the most spectacular monuments of all times. Some of the most attractive features of the palace are the Throne room, which have murals of the Ramayana. The palace has now been converted into a five star hotel. The other interesting features of Umaid bhavan palace are a wood panelled library, a billiards room, tennis courts and squash courts, which are all a part of the Throne room.
