PRIVATE GUIDED TOUR
In the morning visit the monumental Meherangah Fort (pictured right) which towers above the city. This imposing construction was begun in 1459, but most of what can be seen today dates from the 17th century. Part of the fort has been turned into a museum which contains a superb collection of the maharajah's memorabilia. The view from the ramparts over the city of Jodhpur is breathtaking, and you will notice the predominance of blue-coloured houses (below). Contrary to what many people believe, these are not 'Brahmin' houses, but simply reflect the colour of the most effective treatment against white ants! You will also visit the impressive white marble cenotaphs of the rulers of Jodhpur, set in pleasant gardens beneath the fort.
