All of a sudden little children came out of the woodwork, smiling and giggling and obviously pleased to be seeing new faces. They followed us along the narrow pathways through the village, with more joining as we went along. I felt a little like the pied piper. All the wanted and probably knew how to say was ‘pens’. They wanted pens as most rural children seemed to do. Then a group of them wanted their photo taken.

Nimaj is a small place in the Marwar Region of Rajasthan. There are temples in the area one which goes back to the 9th century. Chhatra Sagar and Jagram Durg Fort are also places to see in Nimaj.
Nimaj was a lunch stop for us traveling between Jaipur and Jodhpur. We had been traveling most of the day through rural Rajasthan a small villages along the way. Suddenly we pulled along outside a large wall with an archway gateway.
Location : Nimaj is around 110 kms (2 hrs) from Jodhpur

Panchkund Chattris or cenotaphs of the Queens is 3 Kms from Mandore. Not by far as large and grand as the cenotaphs of the rulers they are profoundly moving. Indeed in their simple and quite dignity the seem to say, "Here in sprit lie Marwar's queens.Let not anyone forget they were the strenght of the Rathores." The chattris lie in near ruin but it is believed they must not be disturbed. They too must follow the natural cycle.

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.

And again monkeys! Monkeys everywhere! :)
Do u know that on streets of India you can meet cows, dogs and monkeys, but no cats. I havent seen a single cat in India. Locals told me that they have cats, just they are staying in and never make any walks outside.

Visit the Jaswant Thanda - an impressive white marble mausoleum dedicated to Jaswant Singh II. The views over Jodhpur are great, the gardens are nice to walk around, and there are not too many people.
Usually you can visit the Jaswant Thanda on the way to the Fort, which is an absolute must see

A short walk behind the mehrangarh fort takes you to the clock tower of Jodhpur where you can have an awesome meal of omelettes at a roadside jaunt called the Omelette Shop

I watched a woman do some embroidery work and eventually bargained to buy a beautifully mirrored wedding blanket.
