    It is a huge fort. The best one till now I have seen. Beautiful work is being done in stone. It is quite high and you can see Jodhpur from the top. It is mesmerizing.

    A quite place that is reminescent of bygone kings. White building and the tombs around with views of magestic Mehringer fort makes it a must place to visit. They also have a yoga demonstration.

    Rao Jodha Desert Rock Park represents a unique opportunity to explore a rocky, arid landscape characterized by thorny shrubs and plants by walking along marked trails. The marked trails aspect of the park makes it unique in India. Even if it is not the sole example of its kind, it must be part of a small group. Having explored two of its trails over a morning, my wishes are for its ilk to grow!

    Do make room for this unique place while in Jodhpur. Beyond the Mehrangarhs, Umaid Bhavans and Jaswant Thadas, this place offers true value. In fact, I'd recommend this after you're done with Mehrangarh, perhaps the day after. One of the joys of exploring this place is to soak in different views of the monumental fortress!

    Here are some pointers for this place:
    1. The price of admission was Rs.100 (Oct 2019) which, given what the place has to offer, is a steal.
    2. Guided Walks in the company of naturalists are available for Rs. 200. We didn't opt for this so I am unable to share my experience in this context.
    3. They are open all days of the week from 7 AM to 6 PM. The best time to visit, naturally, is to be there at the opening hour and make the most of the 5 hours until noon. In winter, you could consider shifting this to 8 AM if you're sensitive to the morning cold but I'd imagine 7 AM is doable with the right winter gear.
    4. There are 4 trails named after colours: Yellow, Green, Red, Blue.
    5. Red Trail: Do this if you're short of time and only have about an hour. It isn't the most memorable of the four but should still provide a glimpse of what the park has to offer. This is less than a km long and is doable in 60 minutes at a leisurely pace.
    6. Green Trail: This is a must do trail if you have 1.5-2 hours given that it offers great exposure to the rocky habitat along with superb views of the fort. We did this trail and got to climb the ramparts of the fort wall.
    7. Yellow Trail: We did this trail along with the Green Trail and in some places, these trails do overlap. They share a similar character in that they provide a fascinating glimpse of unique flora, the rocky habitat and views of Mehrangarh.
    8. Blue Trail: I'm told that is the trail you should do if you're a birdwatcher. It is unique among the four in that it includes a lake as part of it and most of the birdwatching is to be done on the shores of the lake. We didn't get to do this trail and hope to do it someday.

    Give this park a full day for an immersive experience and half a day at the very least. Anything less will not do justice to this place.

    I had a great time at the Umaid Hertigate Art School. Vijay, the owner, (aka Mr Lentil man - know for being able to draw detailed art on a lentil) started the school to preserve the art techniques in the area. I had a fun experience trying my best to also create art using the same techniques and take home the finished piece (see in photo). Vijay, himself was very hospitable and made me feel very welcome and comfortable.

    He also showed me some of the art his students had made, as well as many of his own. He is clearly very knowledgeable and passionate about preserving the art form. Will definitely be visiting again if I’m in the area!

    What wealth is behind this sort of building, a night’s stay is probably equivalent to a decade of a poor person’s income

    The structure is good and can be seen from outside itself. If you walk inside, the terrace is not clean and maintained. The clock can be seen once as it uses old technology.

    Very crowded garden with temples having no statues. Has lot of mionkeys which seem to have got used to the crowds. This place begs despetately for maintenance. Many places have stagnant water and filth. Wish whoever responsible maintains it clean. There is Funzone with some rides. Didnot visit funzone though.

    this shrine was on our way to Bera from Jodphur. Just 50+ kms from Jodphur. We are very glad we stopped for a while to absorb the story and just sit for a short time under in the shade and observe the numerous pilgrims arriving by the busload. Interesting.
