Travel Tips for Jodhpur

Wildlife and wild living

by Assenczo

Outside of Jodpur, one can chase some local game and in the process get to know the locals who are very protective of their environment. On the way to the villages you can be stuck in an animal traffic jam as shown on the pictures in my Rajasthan page, something quite exotic for city folks.

Jaswant Thada

by keeweechic

Jaswant Thada is a white marble memorial built in 1899 and dedicated to Maharaja Jaswant Singh II. It lies halfway up the long road that leads to Meherangarh Fort and set on a traditional cremation ground as was the customs of Jodhpur rulers.

It opens daily from 0800 to 1800. Entry - free but you will pay for the use of your camera.

bishnoi village trip

by mantru

The Bishnoi tribe of the western Indian state of Rajasthan have, over centuries, made a unique blend of ecological sense and religious sensibility their faith's cornerstone
The Thar desert in India is full of ironies—one of them being the Bishnoi community of Rajasthan. Here, peace is maintained with aggression and robust health rubs shoulders with regular famine. Here penniless women flaunt heavy gold jewelery and wild animals leave the supposed security of jungles to stroll around village huts and farmlands.
Not to mention the fact that the Bishnois worship nature in all its manifestations. Not the ripe, yielding nature of ancient pagan societies, but the ruthless and demanding desert where a desolate horizon meets a blazing sky. Here, women suckle motherless deer, die to save trees, go hungry to provide food for animals and live a strictly sattvic (simple) life advocated by their guru Jambaji.
Meet the warrior Bishnoi tribe who prefer to die than let any harm come to the environment and feel blessed as you come across maternity in its natural glory when you see women feeding little deer and other wild animals who roam around freely without any fear of attack.
Marvel at the neat and clean huts that dot the Guda Bishnoi Village landscape and be enchanted with the traditional ways of these people who lead a vegetarian existence and believe in conserving the environment.

Mehrangarh Fort - Palanquin Gallery

by Willettsworld

The next gallery after the elephant howdah gallery is the Palanquin Gallery. Palanquins were a popular means of travel for royal and noble ladies up to the second quarter of the 20th Century. They were also used by men on special occasions. In accordance with the strict Rajput convention of keeping female members of the family away from the general gaze, palanquins were covered on all sides except to provide ventilation through metal screens or louvres. Palanquin bearers largely hailed from the Eastern part of India, such as Uttar Pradesh, Bihar and Orrisa. This gallery displays one of the richest collections of palanquins in Rajasthan. More photo's can be found in one of my travelogues.

Mehrangarh Fort - Cradle Gallery

by Willettsworld

This is the museum’s Cradle Gallery. It is located in a part of the palace called Jhanki Mahal, which translates as the Palace of Glimpses because from here women could peep through the stone Jali screens and amuse themselves with the activities in two separate courtyards - one on each side - the Coronation Courtyard and the Courtyard of Treasures. Several beautiful cradles, including an electric powered one made for the present Maharaja, make up a rare and unique collection.
