Jodhpur, Jodhpur

Jodhpur , Rajasthan
India's insider take:

Jodhpur's imposing Mehrangarh Fort, whose soaring walls, watchtowers, and gun turrets loom over the Blue City (named after its houses painted blue), is arguably one of the most impressive in Rajasthan. A short rickshaw ride or a 15-minute hike uphill from the center of town, the fortress is open from 9 am to 5 pm and is reached through a series of no fewer than seven gates. The view from the cannons at the top is remarkable. Back at ground level, head to Jodhpur's old commercial heart, the Sadar Bazaar, which is located in and around the square that houses the city's famous Clock Tower. The bustling market features all manner of goods, from food to fabrics, metals, and spices. Across town from the Mehrangarh Fort, the enormous dome and towers of the Taj's Umaid Bhawan Palace spike the horizon; travelers not staying there can visit the building's museum from 9 am to 5pm.—Vanessa Able
