On the edge of the Thar Desert stands Jodhpur, the city of Rajasthan dominated by an imposing fort. The old city is surrounded by a wall with eight gates and the new city is built around the wall. Jodhpur in Rajasthan was founded by Rao Jodha in the mid-15th century.

The people of Jodhpur are hospitable and their personalities are as colorful as their attires. Jodhpur is an amalgamation of camel-driven carts, Rajasthani men with bright turbans, women in traditional jewellery, austere sand dunes, architectural wonders and the mouth-watering Rajasthani cuisine.
