      Enveloped in a blanket of one soothing shade, Jodhpur, also called the Blue City, is located on the edge of the Thar desert and is now the second largest city of Rajasthan. Cradled by the massive Mehrangarh Fort on one side, and the stately Palace of Umaid Bhawan on the other, and dotted with monuments, temples and gardens, Jodhpur is brimming with heritage and culture.

    • Rest of the day is at leisure allowing you to relax and unwind in the comfort of your hotel.

    • Meals included: None (meals on your own)
    • Fern Residency
  • Day 2
    Jodhpur
    • Explore the city of Jodhpur.

      After your breakfast at the hotel, the morning begins with a tour of the monumental Mehrangarh Fort. For a comfortable visit to this fort, a great idea would be to wear proper shoes or sturdy sandals and carry sunscreen, sunhat and sunglasses.

      In 1459, Rao Jodha laid the foundation of what was destined to become one of the mightiest forts of all time, Mehrangarh - the citadel of the sun. Today, the beautiful palaces and dazzling period rooms of the fort have been converted into a unique museum that houses an impressive collection of elephant howdahs (seat), palanquins, armory, paintings, turbans and much more.

      Even though you will be accompanied by a local guide, you may want to take the audio tour, which is a part of your entrance ticket. The audio tour that begins with a warm welcome in the rich baritone voice of the current Maharaja of Jodhpur transports you back in time as you meander your way through the numerous corridors of medieval to the modern Indian history.

      Be prepared to walk on an uneven paved pathway most of the way through the fort, right from the entrance itself. It's a reminder of the days gone by, when the horses' hooves would go clippety clop over these rocks. As you walk up the hill, soft notes of lilting shehnai music and the heavy beating of drums reach your ears. Yes, you are now at Loha Pol (Iron Gate), the entry gate to the royal palaces.

      Navigating through this majestic fort, as you reach the ramparts (the highest point of the fort), feel the freshness of the breeze hitting your face. You can actually hear the distant humming of the city below.

      Later, dive into the heart of Jodhpur with a walking tour through the ancient town. This is your opportunity to immerse yourself in the culture and traditions of the area. Learn about interesting legends from the past,peep into the life of locals, and wander through narrow alleyways. The exciting walk ends at the Old Clock Tower vegetable and spice market where you're bound to make new culinary discoveries.

      From here, you will be transferred back to your hotel.

    • The rest of the evening is at leisure.

    • Meals included: Breakfast

      A professionally designed Audio Tour of the main temple complex is worth taking. Take the opportunity of running your fingers over some of the 1,444 carved pillars to notice that no two of them are alike - vertical and intricate carvings, celestial figures, floral motifs, geometrical patterns and much more.

      In the afternoon, return to Jodhpur.
