My most favorite tourist spot in Jodhpur was the Meherangarh Fort. I took so many photographs there. The fort is very beautiful and majestic. The whole city of Jodhpur is situated around the Meherangarh fort. The Jodhpur city is very crowded and the houses are painted blue. Hence Jodhpur is also called as the blue city. When I went inside the fort, I found that the fort encloses many palaces, museums and galleries inside itself. I was amazed after I saw it from inside. I wonder how so many constructions were done so perfectly in those olden times. You need almost a day to visit the entire fort and it may tire you. So i better suggest that you reserve one whole day for this fort to enjoy it completely. The next day I visited the Umaid Bhavan Palace. Now it is a heritage hotel also. Very few parts of the fort are accessible to the tourists. The architecture and royal feel of the palace is hard to forget. I enjoyed the time there. There were many foreign tourists also who had come to visit the palace. My next stop was the Jaswant Thada. It looked like a temple to me at first sight. It is made from thin sheets of marble and is a cremation ground of the royals of Rajasthan. It was built by Sardar Singh in the memory of his father Jaswant Singh II. There is lake and a garden near Jaswant Thada. I had a great time Jodhpur.
