JODHPUR
Jodhpur is the second largest city in Rajasthan, after Jaipur, and one of the most visited. As a result the tourist-tout industry is quite well developed, though nowhere near as bad as Jaisalmer or Udaipur. The city was the capital of the once great kingdom of Marwar - the most powerful of all the Rajput kingdoms and the Meherangarh fort must rate as one of the mightiest castles ever built, anywhere. Even today, the fort is an awesome sight, especially when seen from the old town. The deep red sandstone hill on which the fort is built contrasts beautifully with the marble used in the fort and, even more strikingly in the late 19th century fairy-tale confection that is Jaswant Singh It's mausoleam.
