Our planned travel to Rajasthan this year – the land of palaces, forts, havelis ,temples, gardens, lakes and the great Thar desert .

April 18, 2021

Jodhpur, is a refreshing impression of the royal era of Rajasthan and takes us back in time, to 15th century. It is the second-biggest city in the North-Western State of Rajasthan. Jodhpur is approx 625 kms from New Delhi and can be easily reached by Air, trains or buses . There are numerous places to visit that showcase the beauty of the place and offer an unforgettable travel experience.

Cities and places to be visited , starting from our intended travel from Ranakpur via Udaipur .

Located in village of Ranakpur near Sadri town , 100 kms from  Udaipur , Ranakpur temple is one of the five major pilgrimages of  Jains. It is one of the largest and most important temples of Jain cult. Ranakpur Jain Temple stands as an exquisite testimony to India’s cultural heritage. The construction of the temple is believed to have begun in the 15th century and took nearly 50 years to be completed .

Ranakpur Jain Temples

At the age of 32, businessman Dharma Shah visited Shatrunjaya, the foremost among all the places of Jain pilgrimage and took the vow to lifelong celibacy. He felt the spontaneous urge to build a temple of Lord Rishabh Dev. The legend has it that one night, Dharma Shah dreamt of a Nalinigulma Viman, which is considered to be the most beautiful among the celestial planes. He decided that the temple should resemble this heavenly Viman. It has 1444 pillars, with carving unique to each of them .

There are 3 other temples in the same complex, including a temple of the Sun God,  all well worth a visit. One kilometre away from the temple complex is the Amba Mata temple . There is a canteen inside the temple that serves vegetarian meals at an affordable price . Timings for visit are stated as 7 AM to 5 PM with a small entry fee

Full of majestic historic monuments and sitting close to the immense Thar desert, Jodhpur’s rich ambience engulfs you like a time warp. The numerous blue-painted houses, the colossal Mehrangarh Fort, and a slew of other age-old attractions all seem to bring history to life here.

Jodhpur  is the second-largest city in the Indian state of Rajasthan  with a population surpassing 1.6 million. It was formerly the seat of the princely state of Jodhpur State. Jodhpur was historically the capital of the Kingdom of Marwar, which is now part of Rajasthan. Jodhpur is a popular tourist destination, featuring many beautiful palacesforts,havelis,  temples and parks , set in the stark landscape of  Thar Desert. It is popularly known as the “Blue City” among people of Rajasthan , the colour being associated with Lord Shiva . The old city circles the Mehrangarh Fort and is bounded by a wall with several gates While in Jodhpur, don’t forget to cover other major attractions like Jaswant Thada, Rao Jodha Desert Rock Park, Umaid Bhawan Palace Museum, Balsamand Lake and Mandore Garden. Jodhpur lies near the geographic centre of the Rajasthan state, which makes it a convenient base for travel in a region much frequented by tourists.The City featured in The New York Times‘ 52 Best Places of 2020.

Jaisalmer, the ‘Golden City’ as it is fondly called, is one of those olden cities in Rajasthan that has been attracting globetrotters for a long time now. The destination still looks like a city stuck in time but in a good way ! Renowned for its old-world charm, warm and welcoming people, golden-hued houses , havelis and, of course, the Golden Fort or Sonar Quila,

If you haven’t yet wandered in the narrow lanes of these old and colourful Rajasthani cities, then you are absolutely missing out on a great experience !  Month of December is the right time to be in the twin cities of Jodhpur and Jaisalmer.

TOORJI KA JHALRA

Constructed in 1740, Toorji Ka Jhalra, commonly called Stepwell of Jodhpur, is an intricate design of Stepwell, one of the few remaining structures depicting the traditional water management systems of Jodhpur. This architectural wonder was built by the queen-consort of Maharaja Abhaya Singh, a sign of the age-old tradition of the region where royal women were in charge of overseeing the public water works. The design and structure help onlookers comprehend the lifestyle of the earlier generations who had used it in its prime, with the site serving as the local watering hole for its time.

The Step Well is barely 350 metres walk from the Clock Tower

This 250-year-old structure was made using the famous rose-red sandstone found in Jodhpur. More than 200 feet in depth, it was once adorned with intricate carvings of dancing elephants, medieval lions, cow waterspouts, and niches that showed various deities. There were two levels of access and a separate tank which were meant to receive water from the wheel system powered by the bullocks. Its impressive design attracts many tourists .

CHAMUNDA DEVI TEMPLE

The famous Chamunda Devi Temple is dedicated to Goddess Durga and is located at the end of the Mehrangarh Fort. Rao Jodha got the main idol of Chamunda Mataji for the temple from Mandore in 1460. Every year, during Dusshera, millions of devotees gather at the Fort to get a glimpse of the temple.

The temple is located within walking distance from Clock Tower . 5.30 AM is the best time to be there for the morning Aarti .

Third Day :

MEHRANGARH FORT

Mehrangarh is one of the largest forts in India. Built around 1459 by Rao Jodha, the Fort is situated 125 metres above the City and is enclosed by imposing thick walls. Inside its boundaries, there are several Palaces known for their intricate carvings and expansive courtyards. A winding road leads to and from the City below. The imprints of the impact of cannonballs fired by attacking armies of Jaipur can still be seen on the second Gate. The main Palaces are Moti Mahal, Phool Mahal, Sheesh Mahal, Zenana Deodi, Takht Vilas and Jhanki Mahal. Moti Mahal was the hall of private audience. Its ceiling is decorated with gold leaves and mirrors. Seashells were crushed and blended with plaster to give a polished look to the ceiling. The Phool Mahal (Flower Palace) remains intact to this date, with its gold filigree ceiling and stained glass windows. Sileh Khana has a collection of the varied weapons including gem-studded shields and armours for war elephants.

To the left of the Fort is the chhatri of Kirat Singh Soda, a soldier who fell on the spot defending Mehrangarh. It is one of the major attractions frequented by tourists from all over the globe. Rudyard Kipling aptly said that the fort is “a Palace that might have been built by Titans and coloured by the morning Sun”.

There are seven Gates, which include Jayapol (meaning ‘victory gate’), built by Maharaja Man Singh to commemorate his victories over Jaipur and Bikaner armies. There is also a Fattehpol (also meaning ‘victory gate’ ), which commemorates Maharaja Ajit Singh’s victory over Mughals.

The Fort is built on Bhakur-cheeria which means the ‘Mountain of Birds’. The fort derives its name from Mehr-Garh, where “Mehr” means Sun and “Garh” is Fort [ the Rathore dynasty was a believer in the Sun God ]

An admission fee of Rs 60 is charged from all domestic visitors . 2 hours should be set aside for the visit to the Fort . Services of licensed guides are available at the entrance to the Fort .

JASWANT THADA

The main hall has been built like a temple where puja (ritual) is also performed. The worship of ancestors is common to the Rajput clans.

This is a monument that no tourist should miss visiting while in Jodhpur

There is an entrance fee of Rs 30 for domestic visitors . Open from 9 AM until 6 P.M.

RAO JODHA DESERT PARK

Rao Jodha Desert Rock Park was created in 2006 out of a large, rocky wasteland beside the Mehrangarh Fort. The park was built to restore the natural ecology of this neglected terrain and has become a prime tourist attraction of the city today. The rocky ravines are densely populated with the indigenous flora of the Thar desert, there are over 200 species of plants at this ecopark. The region was established as the Rao Jodha Desert Rock Park in 2006 but it was only in 2011 that the public could visit and explore it. It is one of the few places where the real terrain and vegetation of Rajasthan can be witnessed in its natural environment.

The attraction has been one of the famous places for nature lovers and Geologists. Visitors can see the rock formations, the crystal formations, the natural canals, a wide variety of other rocks, plant and animal species which are specific to this region. The Park, partly, was also established for the architectural restoration of the historical monuments in the region.The Park is divided into sections that visitors can explore to learn everything about the Desert Rock Park in Jodhpur.

Located at the foot of  the Fort . the admission fee is Rs 100 per visitor . Senior citizens will be well advised to cover 400-500 metres on foot to view the scenery as there are no battery operated carts to ferry visitors across the huge Park.

MANDORE GARDENS

Mandore Garden is one of the best tourist spots in Jodhpur. The garden with royal cenotaphs attracts tourists for experiencing the architectural style and attractions of the Garden.

Fourth Day

UMAID BHAWAN PALACE/MUSEUM

Built between 1928 and 1943, the sprawling grandeur of Umaid Bhawan Palace can be seen for miles around. It is the world’s largest private residence. Part of the Palace is a luxury hotel, part of it royal quarters, and some of it is dedicated to the Umaid Bhawan Palace Museum.

The Museum charts the history and heritage of Umaid Bhawan. It tells the story of how Maharaja Umaid Singh appointed a well-known Edwardian architect to design the palace in an art-deco style. It also displays an archive of pictures taken of the Palace over the years, as well as a unique antique clock collection.

Evening free for moving around to get a feel of the Golden City as Jaisalmer is called .

Sixth  Day :

GOLDEN FORT

The Jaisalmer Fort also goes by the name Sonar Quila (Golden Fort) as it rises from the desert itself and seems to become one with the golden hues of the sand. The setting sun adds its own magic and shrouds the fort with mystique. The fort is constructed in the classic style of the royals by local craftsmen.

More than 800 years old , the Golden Fort has been declared as a world heritage site

Consider visiting local eateries which serve delicious ethnic dishes at  Dusshera Chowk . The Golden Fort is among very few ‘living forts’ in the world, where nearly one fourth of Jaisalmer’s population still resides.  

JAIN TEMPLES OF JAISALMER

While moving about inside the Fort , look out for the historic Jain temples dedicated to famous Jain hermits known as ‘Tirthankars’ (wise teachers who taught people how to attain nirvana). Like all other structures in Jaisalmer, the temples are carved out of yellow sandstone. They have been built in the famed Dilwara style which is known for its beautiful architecture.

There are seven Jain temples in total which are built during 12th and 15th centuries AD. These Jain temples are dedicated to different Jain tirthankars. Among these temples, the biggest one is the Parsvanath Temple and is most attractive; others being Chandraprabhu temple, Rishabdev temple, Shitalnath Temple, Kunthanath Temple, and Shantinath Temple.

JAISALMER GOVERNMENT MUSEUM

Established by the Department of Archaeology and Museums, it is a prime attraction for tourists visiting Jaisalmer. The most striking display is the trophy of Rajasthan‘s State bird Godawan (the great Indian bustard).

Traditional household items, rock-cut crockery, jewellery and statues from the 7th and 9th century AD displayed here are remnants of the city’s rich cultural heritage. Some of the fossils on exhibit here are stated to be nearly 150 million years old ! Entry fee : Rs 5 per visitor .

PATWON KI HAVELI

Among all the things that make Jaisalmer so popular, “Patwon Ki Haveli,” also known as the Mansion of Brocade Merchants, tops the list. Patwon Ki Haveli is a cluster of five large havelis in Jaisalmer. Built in 1805 by Guman Chand Patwa, it took the workers almost 55 years to complete the first haveli. With an interesting history, Patwon Ki Haveli is actually the first and the largest haveli to be constructed in Jaisalmer. Accordin g to histor , Patwa was an extremely wealthy man and a well-known trader of his time. Due to his riches, he could afford to build a luxurious palace and thus ordered the construction of separate stories – one for each of his five sons.

The exquisite Patwon Ki Haveli which actually is a cluster of 5 Havelis

Once home to the Patwa family, today the cluster of havelis is occupied by the Rajasthan government’s art and craft department. Its beautiful architecture, creative mirror work, intricate carvings, lovely paintings, and its rich goldish yellow color is what makes this cluster of havelis a favorite among tourists and locals alike. Entrance fee: Rs 30 per visitor .

GADISAR LAKE

Gadisar Lake was constructed in the 14th century by Maharawal Gadsi Singh to meet the water needs of his arid lands. Considering its importance, many small temples and shrines were constructed around it, transforming it into a pilgrimage centre and a major tourist attraction.

Gadisar Lake flanked by temples and shrines

Travellers can spend  sometime boating in the Lake for 30-45 minutes . Also check out for Temple of Lord Shiva on its banks , Tilon ka Pol [ beautiful archway] and Desert Cultural Centre and Museum .

BADA BAGH

About 6 kilometres to the north of Jaisalmer,  lies Bada Bagh, also called Barabagh (literally Big Garden). This Garden complex houses chhatris or royal cenotaphs of the Maharajas of Jaisalmer State, including that of Jai Singh II. The location of the Garden is such that it offers wonderful sunset vistas to tourists.

The royal cenotaphs at Bada Bagh that are worth a visit, especially during sunset

Seventh  Day :

DESERT NATIONAL PARK

The Desert National Park displays the best of the Thar desert’s ecosystem and its varied wild life. The Park is formed of undulating sand dunes, jagged rocks and dense salt lake bottoms . Various species of animals such as black buck, chinkara and desert fox inhabit the Park.

The highly endangered Great Indian Bustard, one of the world’s heaviest flying birds, can also be seen here. In winter, the park hosts an incredible variety of migratory raptors such Himalayan and Eurasian Griffon Vultures, Eastern Imperial Eagle, and the Saker Falcon.

SALIM SINGH KI HAVELI

This Haveli was built in the first half of the 18th century and a part of it is still occupied by descendants of the original residents. The high arched roof is supported by carved brackets designed in the shape of peacocks. Legend has it that there were two additional wooden storeys that made it match the Maharaja’s Palace in height, but he ordered for the upper level to be demolished.

As I understand , this exquisite Haveli is not in a very good condition now !

BAZAARS OF JAISALMER

Unlike shopping malls , high end boutiques and designer labels that we find in big metro cities , shopping in Jaisalmer offers a completely different experience to all travellers alike . The famous street markets in Jaisalmer enable the shopaholics to relish the essence of traditional Rajasthani culture for which travellers from across the world flock to this colourful paradise in earth .

Sadar Bazar – Carpets and paintings

Bhatia Bazar – Silk fabrics

Sonaron Ka Baas – Silver jewellery

Pansari Bazar – Home decor items, clothes

Manak Chowk – Leather items

Seema Gram – Scarves and handicrafts

THE FAMED SAND DUNES

Imagine yourself amidst the desert, the yellow sandstone buildings surrounded by the glorious dunes, and further enhanced by the golden rays of the sun. This is what a trip to Sam Sand Dunes will feel like. Stretched across the Thar desert, sand dunes in Sam must necessarily be a prominent part of Jaisalmer travel itinerary . 

One of the most idyllic places to wind down and get in touch with nature, one can explore plant and animal life here too. Take a camel ride and go on an enjoyable trip to tour the dunes.

Many desert campsites organise cultural programs for visitors to witness the Rajasthani culture. There, you can witness musical nights, folk dances, puppet shows, and a chance to relish the aromatic Rajasthani cuisine.

Visitors can indulge in star gazing, stay at one of the beautiful desert camps, explore the vivid desert life and watch the sun go down. I propose a same day trip in the evening  @ 4.00 PM  to one of the Desert camps , 40 kms away , for an experience of lifetime .

Eighth Day : Jaisalmer War Memorial and Museum / Longewala War Memorial 

JAISALMER WAR MUSEUM

The Indian Army has commemorated the sacrifices of their soldiers in a beautiful display at this War museum, situated at the Jaisalmer military base. This Exhibit is primarily to pay respects to all the brave soldiers who took part and lost their lives in the 1965 India-Pakistan war and the 1971 Longewala battle. A visit to this Museum lets you see a number of captured tanks and other memorabilia from the battle, instilling a sense of immense pride in your country and its soldiers. The Museum  features an audio-visual room where they screen movies about the  Battle.

The Museum also has a war memorial replete with many war trophies and vintage equipment, along with tanks, guns, and military vehicles, murals of soldiers who lost their lives in the war, and weapons which were used during the same. The Air Force has given a Hunter aircraft, which was used during the Battle of Longewala in the 1971 Indo-Pak War, as a present to the Museum. Located on Jaisalmer-Jodhpur Highway, 11 kms from Jaisalmer , it is truly one of the places that you cannot afford to miss. An admission fee of Rs 30 per visitor applies .

LONGEWALA WAR MEMORIAL                                                   

One of the first major engagements in the Western sector during the Indo- Pakistani War of 1971, the Battle of Longewala is an inspiring tale of courage in the face of unconquerable odds. A shining example of the courage, bravery, and valor of the Indian soldiers, the Battle of Longewala created history on 4 December, 1971, when about a hundred Indian defenders halted the advancing troops of about 2000 Pakistani soldiers and 60 tanks.

The Memorial showcases the comprehensive win for India in the battle against Pakistan in 1965 .

To celebrate the grit and steely resolve of the Indian soldiers who stalled Pakistani forces from their aim of cutting deep into the Indian Territory, the Desert Corps at Longewala constructed the Longewala Was Memorial. An inspiring destination, this War memorial commemorates the valor and the supreme sacrifice of our brave soldiers, instilling in you a sense of pride when you visit this site.

Travellers will do well to budget a sum of approx . Rs 110,000 for the 8 nights/ 9 days’ trip, airfares included . There are excellent medical facilities in Jodhpur [ Medipulse Hospital / Kamla Nagar Hospital ,for instance ] which might be difficult to find in the much smaller city that Jaisalmer is . I may, however, recommend that travellers stay 2 days in the beautiful lake City of Udaipur before proceeding to Ranakpur , reducing their stay in Jaisalmer by 1 day .

Thank you for reading . Hope to see you there – this winter . As the locals say in Rajasthan “Padharo mhare desh mein” – welcome to my State .
