Top 13 Things to Do in Jodhpur, Rajasthan

places to visit to jodhpur

Jodhpur, the second-largest city in Rajasthan (albeit pleasingly unspoiled by haphazard development), has a fascinating past. Located on the edge of the Thar desert, about 155 miles from the border with Pakistan, Jodhpur is, in fact, where the eponymous pants got their name from! These unusual pants were designed by the Maharaja of Jodhpur's son, Pratap Singh, and worn by his polo team when visiting the Queen of England in 1897. It is famous for its blue buildings, initially painted to signify that they were occupied by Brahmins, the highest caste in India.

This list of top Jodhpur attractions and places to visit will give you a diverse city experience. Jodhpur Heritage Walk conducts an immersive three- to four-hour guided tour through the city. If you have a spare day or two, visit nearby Bishnoi village or Osian, where you can see carved temples and go on a less-touristy camel safari. 

Explore Mehrangarh Fort

Imposing Mehrangarh Fort, which rises above the "Blue City," is one of the largest and most famous forts . As impressive as it is, as a well-preserved heritage structure, there's so much more to discover inside. The fort has been privately restored, and its museum has an outstanding display of royal memorabilia, including about 15,000 items from Maharaja Gaj Singh II's collection. It also has the only professional museum shop in India. The cultural performances that happen daily at various places inside the fort, as part of the particular focus on folk art and music, are another highlight. Plan your visit with this complete guide to Mehrangarh Fort .

Want a romantic evening dinner? The Chokelao Mahal Terrace restaurant serves traditional Rajasthani cuisine, which sparkles below. The Fort is also an evocative setting for music festivals. Don't miss the annual Rajasthan International Folk Festival in October and World Sufi Spirit Festival in February .

Ride the Jodhpur Flying Fox

Adventure lovers can't pass up the unique opportunity to zip-line with Mehrangarh Fort as the backdrop. The circuit has six zip lines and takes around 90 minutes to complete. Groups of up to 12 people depart at appointed times. It's located on the north side of the Mehrangarh Fort.

Relax at Jaswant Thada

In honor of Maharaja Jaswant Singh II, this intricately crafted cenotaph (empty commemorative tomb) was built in 1899. It features white marble lattice screens and whimsical domes, while the inside is adorned with portraits of Rathore rulers. It's a peaceful place to relax and enjoy stunning views of the Fort and city. Many a tired tourist sprawls on the front lawn to recuperate after sightseeing.

Wander Through Rao Jodha Desert Rock Park

The Rao Jodha Desert Rock Park was developed in 2006 to restore the natural ecology of a large rocky wasteland area next to the Fort. Neglected for many years, the park was overrun by an invasive thorny shrub. After the bush was eradicated, more than 80 native species of rock-loving plants from the Thar desert were grown there. The Park extends 70 hectares (around 200 acres) of rehabilitated land and has a walking trail. It's interesting to explore at different times of the year, as its foliage changes with the seasons.

Check Out the Clock Tower and Old City Markets

A trip to Jodhpur wouldn't be complete without visiting the bustling Old City. Many people choose to stay in this area, too, as some of the best budget hotels in Jodhpur are located there and have fabulous Fort views. The Old City's famous landmark, the clock tower, stands at the heart of it—and it's still working! Next to it, Sadar Market retains a traditional village bazaar feel. It's chaotic and colorful and sells almost everything, including handicrafts, spices, saris, and fabric. If you feel uncomfortable in crowds, you might prefer to take a walking tour rather than explore the market area yourself, as the congestion can be overwhelming. These walking tours offered by Jodhpur Magic and Virasat Experiences are two recommended options.

Dine Overlooking the Step Well

Travel and Still life photography/Getty Images

An exciting Urban Regeneration Project is being undertaken to transform the Old City into its former glory, but with a vibrant and hip spin. As a result, Jodhpur has a newly restored yet ancient stepwell, located just north of the clock tower. Built in the 1740s and called Toorji ka Jhalra, it sat stagnant for years until the owners of the new heritage boutique RAAS hotel purified the pool and sandblasted the steps. The area has been turned into a contemporary square with cool cafes and shops, including a Good Earth home decor store and a branch of Jaipur-based Gem Palace. A secret door at the RAAS hotel will take you directly to Step Well Square. Step Well Cafe has the same owners as RAAS and provides the best view over the stepwell. It serves Continental and Indian cuisine, plus alcohol. However, its menu is quite limited.

Stroll Along the Streets of the Blue City

Unlike the crowded clock tower area, the blue part of Jodhpur behind the fort, known as Navchokiya, is refreshingly quiet and devoid of tourists. Don't miss spending some time leisurely strolling along its streets. It's also possible to go on a guided walking tour of the area to learn more about it. You can even stay amid the blue houses: Some of the top options in the area are  Singhvi's Haveli ,  Jewel Palace Haveli , Rani Mahal, and Jaswant Bhawan Homestay .

Tour the Area Around Gulab Sagar

Tim Makins/Getty Images

About 10 minutes walk north of Toorji ka Jhalra stepwell is Gulab Sagar. This 18th-century lake played an essential role in Jodhpur's traditional water management system. Not only does it provide a superb spot for photographing Mehrangarh Fort in the background, but there are also many interesting step wells and temples hidden in the lanes around it. They include Mahila Bagh Ka Jhalra step well and Kunjabihari Temple dedicated to Lord Krishna. You can discover them on this Step Wells and Temples walking tour .

Marvel at Umaid Bhawan Palace

Magnificent Umaid Bhawan Palace, completed in 1944, was one of India's last grand palaces to be built. The royal family of Jodhpur still occupies a section of it. Most of the remainder has been converted into a luxurious palace hotel, and unfortunately, it's off-limits to anyone who's not staying there. If you can't afford $600 or more per night for a room, you can still get a glimpse inside the palace by having a pricey dinner at one of its restaurants or visiting the museum. The museum mainly displays old photos of the Maharaja and his family. There's a vintage watch and car collection as well. If you're into that kind of thing, it's worthwhile going there. Otherwise, you may be disappointed as you'll get to see very little of the palace.

Take a Cooking Class at Spice Paradise

Spice Paradise is a spice shop run by a kindhearted husband and wife team (their unique masala chai blend has been refined and perfected over the years and is highly recommended). In their humble kitchen, they also conduct Indian cooking classes, which are hugely popular with foreigners. Along with delicious recipes, you'll get to meet a lovely family and gain priceless insight into Indian culture. If you don't have much time in Jodhpur, do book in advance as classes are often full.

Sample Some Indian Sweets

If you love not just Indian sweets but all kinds of Indian snacks, you'll want to visit the iconic Janta Sweet Home , renowned for making some of the best treats in Jodhpur. They're fresh and delicious, and the range is vast. Try the Mawa Kachori, a prestigious dish that originated from Jodhpur.​

Shop at Sambhali Boutique

Sambhali Boutique is the perfect place to pick up some high-quality Jodhpur handicrafts and clothing in Indian and Western styles. All products are made by underprivileged women taught and employed by the Sambhali Trust. Items include silk and cotton camels and elephants, block-printed scarves and curtains, and shoulder bags. Custom orders can also be placed.

If you're looking for cheap accommodations, the Sambhali Trust operates from a very charming little guesthouse (the Durag Niwas Guest House ) that's a hit with backpackers. Long-term stays with all meals provided are possible.

Visit Mandore and Mandore Gardens

Mandore was the capital of the Marwar region before Jodhpur was founded, but now it's in a neglected state. There's an old fort, an eclectic collection of temples and cenotaphs, and a small museum in the Mandore Gardens. The gardens are beautiful, albeit unkempt in places, and used as a local picnic spot. They're worth visiting for the fantastic architecture and history of a bygone era. The best time to go is during the week when it's quietest. If you love monkeys, you'll find plenty there! But be careful that they don't snatch your food!

Jodhpur blue houses in 2 day Jodhpur itinerary - best places to visit in Jodhpur in 2 days

Even though Jodhpur is called the blue city, finding blue houses isn't an easy task. There is a specific area inside Jodhpur which is called “old city” or “blue city” where you will find the houses. The area is a 10-minute walk from the clock tower. Just ask any local for directions and they’ll be able to guide you. Moreover, if you’re going to pachetia hill, you will pass through the narrow lanes of the blue city to get there. Talk about killing two birds with one stone.

3. Toorji ka Jhalra

Toorji ka Jhalra in Jodhpur itinerary - best places to visit in Jodhpur in 2 days

Toorji ka jhalra is an ancient stepwell located in Jodhpur. It is actually a popular sightseeing as well as a hangout spot for locals and youngsters. Due to this reason, I recommend visiting the stepwell in the early hours of the morning before it gets too crowded with tourists and locals. Keep in mind that the stairs of the stepwell can be slippery so walk around carefully and try to stay in the upper section where there isn’t any moss or algae.

Open: 24 hours

4. Umaid Bhawan Palace

Umaid Bhawan Palace in Jodhpur itinerary - best places to visit in Jodhpur in 2 days

Umaid bawan palace is a famous place that has now been turned into a luxury hotel. Popularly recognized as the place where Indian actress Priyanka Chopra married the American sweetheart Nick Jonas, the palace is an opulent structure that is open to visitors. Tourists can pay a small fee to view the luxury car collection here and also to take a tour of a small section of the palace which is kept open to visitors. I was slightly disappointed that visitors could only access a couple of rooms that only had a few paintings and relics. If you’re short on time, I would advise skipping this palace out of all the other places to visit in Jodhpur in 2 days. Do note that there is ample free parking available here.

Open: Mon-Sun 9 am to 5 pm 

Entrance fee: INR 30 for Indians, INR 100 for foreigners, INR 10 for kids aged 5-11 years

Night view of Mehrangrah fort from Zostel rooftop, Jodhpur Rajasthan

End your first day of sightseeing in Jodhpur by having dinner at a rooftop cafe or restaurant overlooking the majestic Mehrangarh fort. The fort is lit up between sunset till 9.30 pm in the night. Try to get a nice comfy seat at a restaurant before that, in order to enjoy your dinner with a breathtaking view. Since I stayed at Zostel Jodhpur, which had a two-level rooftop cafe with the most amazing view of the Mehrangarh Fort, I dined there itself in the night.

DAY 2 OF JODHPUR ITINERARY FOR 2 DAYS

On your second day in Jodhpur blue city, you will explore the grand Mehrangarh Fort, the clock tower area, indulge in some shopping and discover the secret sunset viewpoint.

1. Mehrangarh Fort

Mehrangarh fort in Jodhpur itinerary - best places to visit in Jodhpur in 2 days

Start the second day of your Jodhpur tour by visiting the striking Mehrangarh fort as soon as it opens in the morning. This iconic fort, which was built by Rao Jodha in 1438, defines the landscape of Jodhpur city. For this reason, spare at least 2 hours to walk around and explore all the sections of the fort. The best part about visiting the fort, though, is the entrance of the fort where local folk singers and music players sit there and perform. It’s a heartwarming start to the tour of the Mehrangarh fort. Inside the fort, you will get to see the way the royals used to live their life in opulence and wealth. Do not miss climbing up to the beautiful sheesh mahal (mirror room) and other grand sections of the palace. Visitors can also dine at and shop inside the fort.

Open: Mon-Sun 9 am to 5 pm

This cenotaph or mausoleum, built by Maharaja Sardar Singh in 1899 in memory of his father, is also termed as the Taj Mahal of Mewar due to the white marble that was used for constructing the structure. Just like the Mehrangarh fort, there is a local artist who sits and performs at the entrance of Jaswant Thada.

This area is always lively and the perfect place to indulge in some food binging as well as shopping sessions.

5. Jodhpur's Famous Omelet Stall

Jodhpur famous omlette stall in 2 day Jodhpur itinerary for Jodhpur blue city Rajasthan India

This may sound weird but there is a special famous stall in Jodhpur that sells the most delicious omelets. It is said that this little stall used to make a variety of dishes until Lonely Planet magazine featured their place in one of their guides for selling the world's best omelets. Since then, the demand for omelets grew to such an extent that this is the only dish that they prepare here. They have a wide variety of options to choose from. Each omelet comes with 4 pieces of bread, and two sets of omelets inside them. I particularly loved the Spanish masala cheese omelet.

6. Shopping in Jodhpur

Shopping in Jodhpur blue city

As mentioned earlier, the area surrounding the clock tower is the perfect place to indulge in shopping sessions and to find souvenirs to bring back to your friends and family. Here you’ll find traditional clothing items such as gota patti dupattas, bandhani skirts and sarees, jewelry, home decor pieces, and little curios ranging from fridge magnets to badges and stickers. There are countless shops to choose from.

7. Sunset Viewpoint

Jodhpur sunset viewpoint in Jodhpur Itinerary - best places to visit in Jodhpur in 2 days

While this is a slightly controversial place, it would be unfair to exclude it from my Jodhpur itinerary for 2 days. This hilltop is located behind the Mehrangarh fort and is truly the best place to witness the sunset in Jodhpur. Now, when I visited this Jodhpur sunset spot, there were quite a few tourists and locals here. However, some people told me that on another day, the cops came here and asked people to vacate the area which is closed to visitors. It’s best to verify this information with your hotel or hostel before visiting.

Food to Try in Jodhpur

17 best places to visit in jodhpur (india) in two days.

Cazzy Magennis

Bradley and I visited the historic area of Jodhpur in October and I was most excited about the prospect of this being a “blue” city. You’ll see why soon.

As a part of our 3 weeks in India , we were able to spend 2 days in Jodhpur. As such, I thought it was appropriate to create a list of great places to visit in Jodhpur in two days.

I’ve also included some information on when the best time to visit Jodhpur is, how to get there and where to stay and more. This means you’ll have everything you need to know for a fantastic two days in Jodhpur with my mini Jodhpur travel guide.

Travellerspoint

When is the best time to visit Jodhpur?

The best time to visit Jodhpur is between October and March. The weather is bearable (still very warm) and it tends to be the tourist season in India with more frequent buses and flights etc. We visited in October and I thought I was a perfect time.

How do you get to Jodhpur?

walking to Mehrangarh fort

There are a variety of ways to get to Jodhpur, depending on where you are coming from.

‍ Flying: you can get to Jodhpur via flights from Delhi and Mumbai. If you try to fly from any other airport then it will just include a connection in either of these cities. Flights range from £25-50 depending on the time of year, availability and when you book. We always use Skyscanner to check for flights.

Train: India has an extensive train network and it’s convenient and well priced, but everything tends to book up quickly in the popular season so if you want 1st Class or 2/3rd class AC then you’ll need to book relatively quickly.

I recommend going into a travel agent to book your train tickets. Basically, the online train ticket buying network is a bit of a mess, and whilst 12go. Asia offer some options, if your chosen option isn’t available, then a travel agent can usually help. They take a fee of 50 pence, which is worth the hassle it saves you. ‍

fort view

Bus: There a multitude of buses running to Jodhpur from both directions (Udaipur/Jaipur). The bus is the option we opted for from Udaipur. Our bus costs 600 rupees (around £6) and that was for an air conditioned bus with Rain Travels. I have to say I was pretty impressed by the bus, it was clean, spacious and the aircon worked. We did arrive an hour later than planned, but it’s India, and I would expect that everywhere you go.

Where is the best place to stay in Jodhpur?

Castle View Homestay! This where were Bradley and I stayed for our two nights in Jodhpur. It was beautiful. Not only was it decorated in beautiful traditional Indian decor, but the rooms were also clean, cozy and it offered STUNNING views of the fort. A rooftop restaurant is available and the views are worth the stay. The WiFi was also good, alongside aircon and friendly staff.

A Perfect Stay.

The top things to do in Jodhpur

Now is for the good part, a list of the best places to visit in Jodhpur in two days. I am going to list this out in a form of the top things to do in Jodhpur, then at the end, I will break it down in what you should do on day one and day two.

1. Mehrangarh Fort

Mehrangarh fort

Okay, let's start with the absolute best of the places to visit in Jodhpur in two days. Mehrangarh Fort is an area bursting with beauty and history.

This is one of the largest forts in all of India and it stands a beautiful 400 feet above the city overlooking the beautiful blue houses. The fort was constructed in 1459 AD by Rao Jodha. I’ll not go into too much of the history as your entrance includes an audio guide which will tell you everything you need to know.

But, fun fact I just discovered whilst researching this blog: This is where the cave scenes of the Dark Knight Rises were filmed.

This place offers amazing views, (which is the thing I was MOST interested in- I love a good view), and it looks beautiful lit up in the evening.

views over blue city from fort

There are cafes inside where you can catch a bite to eat or a drink, and there are even a few shops, but I am pretty sure you are paying above the odds because it’s in a tourist spot.

Ps if you are white as snow like me, then expect a lot of locals asking for selfies, and to hold their babies (I dunno why lol).

selfies in india

There is a really cool moment near the ticket office where you can see the pigeons flock off together in one mass movement which is pretty cool for photographing. BUT, watch they don’t poop on your head. ‍

birds at Mehrangarh fort

Cost: 600 for adults (including audio guide) 100 camera fee and it’s open 9 to 5 each day. Students can get a discount.

TOUR: Book your half day tour now!

2. Umaid Bhawan Palace

unmaid palace

This is one of the worlds largest palaces and the fun fact...you can stay here if you want. But it’s not going to be cheap. This was actually the last royal palace built in India before independence.

It’s the youngest palace of India and it’s truly an architectural splendor and a truly royal experience. It’s built on sprawling grounds of 26 acres, perched high above the Blue City of Rajasthan. It’s worth a visit even if you don’t have the pleasure of staying there.

Not only that, there is a museum that’s open to all. It houses some marvelous specimens which include exhibits of porcelain wares, glass, memorabilia, and information on the building of the palace.

The museum is open from 10 AM to 16:30 PM Monday to Sunday and it costs  30 per person for Indians, 100 per person for Foreigner tourists and 10 per person for Children (5-11 years).

TOUR: You can visit this spot and many others in Jodphur with this brilliant tour.

3. Explore the abandoned Mandore Gardens

mandore gardens

Those in search of something unique should definitely include this in their list of places to visit in Jodhpur in two days. It’s not only beautiful, but it’s abandoned meaning, you’ll probably have it all yourself (well, almost!)

Mandore is actually the old capital of the Jodhpur kings which already makes it interesting. It was abandoned when the majarias of Jodhpur moved to Mehrangarh Fort.

Nowadays it’s filled with luscious green gardens, cheeky monkeys, stunning architecture, beautiful birds and some street vendors. At first, it looks like a typical green garden, but start walking and you’ll feel like you’ve just stepped into Cambodia among Angkor Wat- minus all the crowds.

There are some beautiful structures to be discovered with the intricate architecture still present outside and inside. Just wander and you’ll discover new things on each turn.

There is also a museum within the complex that charges a small fee.

The gardens are open every day from 8 am to 8 pm but the museum closes at 5 pm.

4. Jodhpur Stepwell

Jodhpur Stepwell, India

If you consider yourself a bit of a daredevil, then you’ll like this place to visit in Jodhpur. Bradley wasn’t aware that this was a thing to do in Jodhpur, and I am kind of glad he didn’t because I am pretty sure he would have jumped, and I almost died when he did the Mostar bridge jump, so Yano, my heart might not take anymore jumps haha.

Anyway, the Jodhpur Stepwell is an urban jump. Apparently, it was constructed in 600 AD but it’s now the not so official swimming pool of Jodhpur. Basically you can jump from a high height, however, it’s not technically allowed, so when the police turn up, you leave. I don’t think you’ll actually get into trouble if you’re caught, more of a “don’t come back” sort of job.

This isn’t my cup of tea, but if you like action, then why not jump! It doesn’t cost you anything either.

This is a VERY popular Instagram photo nowadays, so if you want to visit there and other Instagram worthy spots, then check out this Jodhpur Instagram Tour.

5. Clock tower and Sadar market

elehants in market centre

The clock tower is one of the most popular landmarks in the old city of Jodhpur. Leading from the clock tower is the Sadar market which is perfect if you want to wander and pick up from Indian sweets, spices, textiles and much more.

If you want to try some local delights such as the famous Lassi, then this is the best spot to do so. There is also a little cafe called Cafe Royal near the clock tower in which you can enjoy a cup of coffee whilst people watching through the hustle and bustle. I’ve included the TripAdvisor link for you to check it out.

6. Jaswant Thada

Jaswant Thada, India

This is a BEAUTIFUL white marble memorial built in 1899 in memory of Maharaja Jaswant Singh II. It's a clear example of architectural brilliance and beauty in India. If you love architecture as much as I do, then this site should be at the top of the list of places to visit in Jodhpur in two days.

Every city in India as a Taj Mahal sister and this white marble wonder of Rajasthan is often called the Taj Mahal of Marwar.

The main memorial is built like a temple, featuring finely carved sculptures and lovely domes. Visitors can view beautiful portraits of the various rulers of Jodhpur.

The cremation ground is surrounded by magnificently carved gazebos, a small lake, and an exquisite multi-tiered garden.

The best time to visit is October to march (so that peak season we mentioned at the beginning) and it’s open 9-5 daily.

You can get a tourist bus or taxi to the area, or you can rent out a moped.

Costs are as follows:

  • ‍ Indian visitors (adult/child)- Rs.15
  • Foreign visitors (adult/child)- Rs.30
  • Still camera pass- Rs.25
  • Video camera pass- Rs.50

7. Explore the blue houses of the blue city

blue city

The blue city is famous because of its blue houses so you can’t visit them. For those who stay “outside” the blue arena, you can easily get a tuk-tuk to the blue houses, or walk amongst them after you have visited the main fort attraction.

If you are staying in a property that has a fort view, such as the Castle View Homestay we recommended, then you’ll be staying in a blue house anyway so it’s easy to get photos.

If you are just visiting the blue city for a couple of hours, then I recommend dining in one of the restaurants that offer a rooftop view. It’s a glorious place to enjoy your food with that magnificent view.

8. Dine by candlelight with a view of the fort

Mehrangarh fort

Speaking of dining with a view of the fort, the best time to do so is when it hits sunset. The view of the fort at night is spectacular. It’s lit up and it’s truly a fantastic sight. It’s the perfect romantic setting, or just laid back setting to enjoy a few drinks and a meal with friends.

I really can’t recommend it enough. If you’re staying out of the blue city then head in for dinner- trust me on this!

9. Mahadev Temple

We never went here personally but I’ve included it on the list of places to visit in Jodhpur in two days because it looks awesome. According to my research, it’s a little difficult to find, but aren’t all great places difficult to find. Ask a tuk-tuk driver to take you, or if you have a moped, then drive until you see a temple in the distance from the fort.

It offers unique panoramic views that you won’t get elsewhere, plus since it’s difficult to find and others don’t really know about it, you’ll have it all to yourself.

10. Mehrangarh Viewpoint

This carries on from that fort you’ve just discovered. About a five-minute walk from Mehrangarh Fort is a small trail of stairs which lead to a temple and a collection of phone towers. You then continue onto the rocks and the walls of the fort which brings you a beautiful view. It’s a perfect sunset spot and you can watch people do ziplining (we speak about that on the next point).  This is one of the great places to visit in Jodhpur at night.

So, if you’re looking for a unique and I’d say, romantic spot to catch the sunset, then put this on your list of places to visit in Jodhpur in two days.

11. Go zip lining through the historic sights

local children in jodhpur

Speaking of ziplining, you can partake in this AWESOME activity whilst seeing historic sights. The zip line is done with a company called flying fox, and they actually have zip line locations all over Asia and South East Asia, so if you’ve been traveling there before, you may have heard of them.

Basically, they’re a high quality and safe company to zip line with.

You’ll get to fly high over the battlements and crenellations of Rajasthan's most majestic fortress, the Mehrangarh Fort and two desert lakes, trek through the Rao Jodha eco-park and enjoy the best view of Mehrangarh and the Blue City of Jodhpur.

A truly breathing taking experience.

It costs 1800 for adults and 1600 for children and students if you book online. The website is here with all the information you need.  It’s cheaper to book online, at the fort they charge a lot more money. So book online for the best deal.

12. Visit the lakes

Kaylana lake.

lake

If you want a peaceful lake view, then include this spot on your top places to visit in Jodhpur in two days. I’d actually visit after you’ve seen the fort and you’re exploring the blue city because it’s all very close by.

It's located 8 km to the west of Jodhpur on the Jaisalmer road and it’s a good picnic and sunset spot and it’s good for bird spotting if you’re interested in that.

Balsalma Lake

Balsamand Lake jodhpur, India

This is another beautiful lake to visit. This is a popular picnic spot that is surrounded by hills and gardens which you can walk around and visit. They’re filled with beautiful roses, and pools covered with lilies. Next to the lake stands the Balsammand Palace, an artistic eight-pillared palace with three entrance gates. Maharaja Sur Singh got the palace constructed in 1936, as a summer pavilion.

Located just a mere 2 km from the lake is a quirky temple called Maha Mandir. It’s a hundred pillared temple that is dedicated to Lord Shiva. A walled town is built around the temple. It’s a pretty cool spot.

13. Rao Jodha Desert rock park

Rao Jodha Desert rock park, India

Rao Jodha Desert Rock Park was a project created in 2006 in an attempt to try and restore the natural ecology of a large, rocky wasteland next to Mehrangarh Fort in Jodhpur.

The park itself is around 170 acres and you can enter the visitor's center. Of course, it offers beautiful views of the fort too. Throughout the year there are lots of beautiful and unique flowers that are common and pop up, so regardless of when you visit, there will be something different on offer.

Opening times:

  • April to September - 7 am to 6:30 pm
  • October to March - 8 am to 5:30 pm

Entry cost:

  • ‍ Adults Rs.100
  • School Students - Free
  • Hire a Naturalist for a guided walk -Rs.200/-

Since this is an all-year activity, it should alwaysbe on your list of places to visit in Jodhpur in two days.

14. Chamunda Mata temple

stupa in jodhpur

This temple is located on the south end of the fort, so it can be visited when you are exploring the fort. It’s a holy shrine that’s dedicated to Chamunda Devi. It’s beautiful whether you’re religiously inclined or not, and it offers a cool view over the surrounding city. If you’ve only got 2 days in Jodhpur then this should be included in your itinerary.

15. Take a CityWalk with blue city walks

The Blue City and Mehrangarh Fort in Jodhpur. Rajasthan, India

If you want to get to know a city with a guide, then a city walk is the best way to do it. The blue city walking tour and experience will take you through a 3-hour walk to discover a city that was apparently “planned in the form of a human body, where every part of it resembles different organs of the body” (what!?).

I recommend this for those who really want to immerse themselves in the history of Jodhpur and learn a little more. It’s also a good way to meet other travelers if you’re traveling solo, so pop it on your list of places to visit in Jodhpur in two days.

There are advertisements for this tour on almost every hotel, or you can book online. The price is 1,900.

16. Rent a moped and explore

local market of jodhpur, India

If you are brave enough to rent a moped (only joking), you don’t need to be brave, it’s really not THAT bad driving in Jodhpur. Anyway, there is a moped rental place located near the clock tower to the center of the town called “Jodhpur new bikes and rental” and it costs 400 for a day, and an extra 50 for an extra helmet.

They will say that “man wears a helmet, the woman doesn't need one”, but for god sake please wear a helmet.

Basically get your moped and drive. Drive anywhere and everywhere. Look for unique points on google maps and you’ll probably find new temples or brilliant views. You can also use your moped to take day trips out of Jodhpur if you are staying for longer than 2 nights. We discuss some great day trips at the bottom of this post.

17. Go shopping at the “high street”

If you arrive in Jodhpur via bus, then you’ll probably drive through the “high street” to get to your accommodation. The reason I call it a high street is that it’s literally a long strip of shops that include designer shops and market style shops. Perfect for picking up a few forgotten items from your India packing list . So if you do feel like doing some upmarket shopping then this is the place to do it. The whole area is quite modern and has a European vibe to it.

Jodhpur 2 day itinerary

  • Mehrangarh Fort
  • Chamunda Mata temple
  • Roa Jodha Desert rock park
  • Visit the Lakes
  • Explore the blue city
  • Mahadev Temple/viewpoint
  • Shop on the high street
  • Visit the clock tower and market
  • Mandore Gardens
  • Jodhpur Stepwell
  • Jaswant Thada

You could easily spread this further than 2 days and turn it into a Jodhpur 3-day itinerary, but if you are just in Jodhpur for 2 days then these are all possible to see. (It will just be busy)

If you fall in love with Jodhpur (it happens!), then there are lots of places to visit near Jodhpur. Simply rent a moped and get out and explore around the country. Below we list some top places to visit near Jodhpur, perfect if you’re staying for 3 or 4 nights.

Bradley and I didn’t get the chance to visit these places as we were low on time, but I definitely recommend seeing as much as India as possible and having your own transport is the way to do it.

2 day jodhpur itinterary

Best day trips from Jodhpur

Distance from Jodhpur: 68 km so around 1 hour and 30 minutes.

This is one of the great places to visit near Jodhpur and you can use a moped to get there. An oasis in the Thar desert, this area is known for its temples. If you want to experience the desert in Rajasthan, then this is a good place to go. There are lots of great places to visit in the area including Osiyan temple.

osia day trip

Distance from Jodhpur: 77 km so around 1 hour 30 minutes.

Another great Jodhpur sightseeing spot and one that you’ll need a moped or some form of transportation to visit. This city may be quaint, but it's home to lots of wonderful temples, so temple lovers will be happy.

Gardens and stepwells are also available and it's probably most famous for Om Banna shrine. A visit here is believed to make your journey safe. So a nice place to visit in your Rajisitan adventures.

ATMS in Jodhpur

If you are using a Revolut card (the best travel card and exchange rate on the market, so why wouldn't you be!?) Anyway, the only bank we found in India that lets you withdraw money for FREE is the Bank of Baroda, and there are at least two of these in the town center (near the clock tower).

Getting around Jodhpur

  • ‍ Use Uber or Ola: both uber and ola are available in Jodhpur, so use them to get to where you need to be. It’s far easier than haggling as you’ve got a set price, and they know your destination (which is also sometimes hard to explain) ‍
  • Use rickshaws: if you don’t have access to the internet (local sims are cheap from Airtel) then use a rickshaw, just try not to get ripped off. I would recommend asking your hotel what the price is for a local for a particular journey, and try and get as close to that price in your negotiations! ‍
  • Walk: lots of places are within walking distance, but make sure you’ve got some good shoes on!

walking in jodhpur

So there you have it, my guide on the top place to visit in Jodhpur in two days. As you can see, which you scratch the surface, there truly is lots to do in Jodhpur and creating a Jodhpur itinerary can seem a bit of a challenge. But follow my two-day suggestions and you’ll have covered the majority of the brilliant places to see in Jodhpur.

When is the best time to visit Jodhpur

As i’ve said before there are 3 main seasons in India : there’s the dry and sunny winter, the scorching hot summer and monsoon season. It’s safe to say the first one is the preferred choice for traveling through Rajasthan.

I can know, I traveled through Rajasthan in the middle of May, and even that I am still alive to tell the tale, there were soooo many moments where I simply couldn’t move from the heat. I had to cool off in air conditioned rooms and was only able to explore the cities in the early morning.

It would be shame to mis out on so many exploring options dimply because of weather circumstances.

From October until March is the ideal time to visit Jodhpur and to travel around Rajasthan . Do know that while during the day you’ll be able to enjoy temperatures up to 25°C it does get rather cold in the evening so make sure to bring layers with you.

Standing tall on a hill, 410 feet above the city, the fort's imposing walls and magnificent architecture make it one of the most impressive forts in India.The construction of Mehrangarh Fort began in 1459 by Rao Jodha, the founder of Jodhpur, and it took several centuries for subsequent rulers to complete and expand the fort. The name "Mehrangarh" is derived from two words: "Mihir" meaning sun, and "Garh" meaning fort, collectively symbolizing the strength and power of the Sun dynasty.As you approach the fort, its sheer size and intricacy of design leave you awe-struck.

6 Best Things To Do In Jodhpur

Posted on Last updated: 21 November 2023

Categories India

Looking for the best things to do in Jodhpur can throw up a few surprises. So here’s a guide to one of our favourite stops in India.

Table of Contents

1. The Blue City

The Blue City is what Jodhpur is famously known for, and this is why so many tourists flock there each year.

Obviously you are welcome to explore the city at your own will, however the sea of boxy indigo houses which stretch for more than 10 kilometres. So it can be hard to find some of the best spots alone.

We took a  Blue City Walking Tour , and the local guide showed us the ins and outs of the alleyways, as well as broke down some of the interesting history behind the blue walls!

The second largest city in the state of Rajasthan, the blue city walls are certainly one of the best things to do in Jodhpur.

2. Mehrangarh Fort

Mehrangarh Fort in Jodhpur is   ranked by most Indians as the best Fort in the country.

It costs 600 Rupees to enter as a foreigner. Which is fairly priced compared to some of the attractions in India.

The entrance fee includes a very informative audio tour, plus access to the museum.

If you’re short for time, and trying to tie in as many things to do in Jodhpur as possible, then taking a  Jodhpur City Sightseeing: Full-Day Private Tour is a great option.

See the many stunning monuments of Jodhpur on a full-day tour, in an air conditioned car, that takes you to see historic forts and temples, breathtaking gardens, and a palace that’s been transformed into a heritage hotel.

We took the audio tour at Mehrangarh Fort and learned about the history of the stunning complex and what it stood for.

3. The Stepwells

There are many ancient stepwells located in and around Jodhpur, used to collect and store water throughout the city.

With Jodhpur located at the base of a hill, these stepwells are examples of the many types of storage and irrigation tanks that were developed in India. Mainly to cope with seasonal fluctuations in water availability.

They also help prevent floods during the rainy seasons.

One of our favourite stepwells is located right in the middle of town – Toorji Ka Jhalra.

Not only does it make for an awesome place to cool off, but we took the plunge and jumped from the third tier of the steps. Great fun and definitely one of the best things to do in India .

Those that are feeling really brave can even join some of the locals that and jump from the roof! Just make sure you have your travel insurance in place!

4. Mandore Gardens

Take a 20 minute rickshaw ride outside the city and you’ll forget you’re in India.

The Mandore Gardens are a charming collection of temples, memorials, and high rock terraces, that not many tourists tend to venture out to.

We paid 500 rupees (split between 6 people) to get to Mandore Gardens from the city.

Our driver then waited an hour, while we explored the gardens, and returned us to our accommodation.

If you’re looking for this kind of service you can actually pre-book a  Jodhpur Guided Full-Day Tour .

This includes stops at Mehrangarh Fort, Jaswant Thada, Rao Jodha Desert Rock Park, Umaid Bhavan Palace and Mandore Gardens.

So if you’re looking to take a relaxing stroll through some greenery, or just have an hour away from the car horns and salesmen, then Mandore Gardens is one of the most beautiful places to visit in Jodhpur.

5. Clock Tower & Sardar Market

The Ghanta Ghar, or Jodhpur Clock Tower, is situated in the centre of the city and overlooks the Sardar Market.

The Clock Tower was built by Maharaja Sardar Singh, and this is where the market gets it name from.

Ghanta Ghar costs only 30 rupees to visit, and gives you a look at the Clock Tower from the inside, as well as a view over the bustling market below.

As for the Sardar Market itself, you won’t be stuck for local handicrafts if you want to pick something up from Jodhpur on your travels.

If you’re looking for a guided tour of not only the market, but the highlights of the best places to visit in Jodhpur, then check out the Jodhpur Guided Highlights Half-Day City Tour .

The Sardar Market sells pretty much anything you can think of, and the quirky local stalls go on forever!

Not only that, but you must visit the Shri Mishrilal Hotel – which has become Jodhpur’s pride and favourite spot for lassi lovers.

6. Eat Local

Food is one of the largest parts of Indian culture, so you’re going to want to get fully immersed amongst it.

For the true foodies there are plenty of tours available, the most popular being the Jodhpur Guided Street Food Crawl .

We ate out at some lovely places but here are a couple of our favourites:

The Blue Turban

This rooftop cafe opens at 6pm and has THE best view of Jodhpur Fort at night.

With Mehrangarh Fort within touching distance, and the food at usual Indian prices, it’s nice to see they haven’t doubled the costs for the sake of the amazing view!

Shahi Samosas

A huge hit with the locals, and the busiest samosa shops we saw in India.

Shahi Samosas was certainly one of the best places to visit in Jodhpur! With constant crowds of local Indians outside, not only did we know the food would be good, but we could see it was coming out super fresh!

Serving samosas up at just 16 Rupees, this was our go to spot in Jodhpur to fill a hole!
