Top 13 Things to Do in Jodhpur, Rajasthan

jodhpur tourist place pictures

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

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

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!

"The Blue City"

Jodhpur tourism.

Jodhpur is the second-largest city in Rajasthan and the former capital of the Marwar region. It is popularly called "the Blue City" as it looks completely blue from an aerial view because of its blue walls and houses. Jodhpur is primarily famous for its temples, lakes and snacks, with the magnificent Mehrangarh Fort being the main attraction.

The magic of Jodhpur lies in the streets of the old city itself, which circles the mighty Mehrangarh. Hundreds of shops, guesthouses, eating joints, and vendors make it a bustling chirpy town, especially near the landmark clock tower and Sardar Market. The new and modern Jodhpur lies beyond Mehrangarh. Nearby Jaswant Tada and Umaid Bhawan Palace are also among the top attractions in Jodhpur.  Jodhpur is famous for its delectable food items, especially Pyaaj Kachori, Mirchi Bada and Mawa Kachori. In September, the city hosts the colourful Marwar Festival and Rajasthan International Folk Festival. Some traditional villages are located around Jodhpur, and a tour of these villages (called Bishnoi Village Safari) is one of the popular things to do here. One of the strangest temples in India, where a Royal Enfield motorbike is worshipped, is located nearby and worth visiting. The ancient Thar desert town of Osian is also located here, 65km north of Jodhpur.  Seen in the backdrop of the movies, the most popular being The Dark Knight Rises, Jodhpur attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors worldwide. Moreover, it is conveniently located in the centre of Rajasthan, making it the base for visiting nearby places.

10 Instagrammable Photo Spots at Jodhpur

jodhpur tourist place pictures

A Brief About the City

Jodhpur, Rajasthan, is widely known as the ‘blue state’. While the actual story behind the lovely blue colour is kind of dull since it comes from copper sulphate which is employed to effectively repel mosquitos, it does make for a good photograph! Later, it began to be associated with the cobalt blue colour of Lord Shiva. And now, it is used to keep their houses cool since the colour blue is a good reflector of sun rays – providing much needed respite in Rajasthan’s desert summers. Each local will tell you a different, personal, lore about the blue colour of their house. Here comes the 10 Instagrammable Photo Spots at Jodhpur.

jodhpur tourist place pictures

Why Photography is the Best Way to Remember the City?

Capturing a moment in a photograph is more than about just securing a memory – it also establishes a timeline of your life and helps you appreciate your life more. Now, with the advent of smartphones it has become even easier to capture a good memory. And when you see something as beautiful as Jodhpur , it becomes natural to feel a desire to hold it close to yourself giving you a sense of ownership. The joy that comes from looking at happy memories and relieving them. And sharing them with your friends and family is unlike no other. And what other place for that other than Instagram?

jodhpur tourist place pictures

While some spots in the listicle are popular tourist destinations, some are also local secrets. Grab your camera, and find your way to any – or all – of these beautiful spots!

Toorji ka Jhalra

Toorji ka Jhalra is a stepwell that, according to legend, was constructed by a queen during 1740. This spot is amazing for getting clicked as the geometric design on the stairs. And the deep blue water frame and magnificent capture. It is still an unknown spot to many, which is perhaps why the area here is always neat and clean.

It is still off the tourist map, however it is an ancient architectural wonder to behold. There are many stairs to choose from regarding where you want to stand and angle your photograph. This place is still fresh because after being left damaged and full of wreckage for a lot of years, it was only restored and repaired recently. The best time to photograph here is early morning as by midday it is not only too hot. But also because children from the local population come here to take a swim in the perpetually cold waters of the stepwell to cool themselves.

Mehrangarh Fort

No questions about this, the Mehrangarh Fort tops the list of must visit places in the city of Jodhpur . The architecture of this Fort makes the viewer travel right back in history to the era of royals. Mehrangarh Fort is also one of the largest forts in India and it represents true Rajasthani-ness. It is the best possible way to get a bird’s view on the entire expanse of Jodhpu’s blue city. Because this spot is the most elevated one on the list, it will provide arguably the best background or focus point for your photographs. Not only the outside of this fort, but the inside is also truly magical architecture. We promise you, you will not be able to put your camera down once you take a step inside the Fort. The grandeur of the Fort’s architecture will make you want to take a picture at every corner!

View over the old city

The old city is where you will find most of the blue houses in Jodhpur. And since we have hopefully already convinced you to go to Mehrangarh Fort, you’re almost already there at this spot. This spot is a few kilometres from the Fort, and you get both the blue houses of Jodhpur and the magnanimous Mehrangarh Fort in this shot. This spot is definitely the best spot if you wish to capture the ‘blue’ of Jodhpur. You get the entire city in the frame and the blue houses provide an excellent contrast from the other houses. The background and you will both shine in this perfectly instagrammable shot!

jodhpur tourist place pictures

Clock Tower

Known as Ghanta Ghar in the native language, the clock tower is no less than a landmark destination in Jodhpur. It is the Clock Tower that separates new Jodhpur and old Jodhpur. You can climb up till the balcony of this colossally tall tower. Although it is not the top most point of the Tower, it does show appealing views of the Sadar Market and all its hustle bustle underneath. The Sadar Market is a great place to capture the actual city and its people. And when you’re here shooting photos, you might as well also do some shopping and pick up some souvenirs!

jodhpur tourist place pictures

Ghanshyam Temple

Green and gold, this 16th century temple is exactly what your Instagram feed needs. As the most beautiful temple in Jodhpur, it is truly a feast for your eyes. If you wish to take a look inside, you will find the most friendly priests. They are known to sing and dance with people during prayer time and for spreading colour. The temple opens its doors at 5am and closes at 10pm. During midday it is shur from 1:45pm to 5pm, which might be the best time to photograph there as the steps will be free and the surrounding area is less crowded too.

jodhpur tourist place pictures

Jaswant Thada

Jaswant Thada is a cenotaph that was built hundreds of years back in 1899. Back then, it would serve as a cremation ground for the royal family of Marwar, and now its grandeur and architecture attract locals and tourists alike. However, it is still not as popular as other spots on the list, which fortunately makes it not only a perfect instagrammable spot but also a peaceful spot. The colour and architecture will make you unable to take your eyes off it! It is also called the ‘Taj Mahal of Mewar’.

jodhpur tourist place pictures

Also known as the Alley of Blue Houses among tourists, this is where you get to absorb the beauty of the blue Jodhpur houses at eye level. Wander away from the bustling market places and the new town, and head to Chandpole – the older quarters of Jodhpur – to rejuvenate. Here, you will also find more friendly locals who will be willing to tell you tales as the first settlers of the city. Blue is spattering throughout Chandpole in all different shades. Not surprisingly, these streets are very different from the upbeat markets that lead to Chandpole.

The deeper you travel into Jodhpur the seemingly quieter it gets. And since it is not yet a greatly tourist-accessed spot, if you find your way here, you are definitely going to have to have blue houses and walls to take pictures all to yourself! There is not one particular cluster of houses that is more blue than the rest, so you will have to do the labour of finding the diverse shades of blue yourself.

Since this area is notoriously difficult to navigate to, here are the GPS coordinates for it: 26° 17′ 51.852″ N 73° 0′ 51.084″ E

Kaylana Lake

Kaylana Lake is an artificial lake that was built in 1872 for rain water harvesting. This lake has always been the most popular point to watch the sunset in the city. Taking up over 8 kilometres, this lake gets a beautiful reflection of all the colours of the sun. Not only do you get to witness the merging of the lake and sky during sunset hours, but during the day, Kaylana Lake is a popular spot amongst bird watchers. Birds can be seen cooling in the lake, flying over the lake and often playing hide and seek with the watchers through the trees by the lake. Siberian Cranes are especially known to grace the lake most frequently.

Some cautionary advice about this lake is that people are not allowed to swim here. If you wish to enjoy the beauty of the lake, there are plenty of boat rides that you can enjoy here.

jodhpur tourist place pictures

Mandore Gardens

Less than ten kilometres from the main city of Jodhpur are Mandore Gardens . The best time to photograph here are evenings, as the sunset looks wonderful from the Mandore Fort – which is what the Mandore Gardens are built around. The Mandore Fort, features the royal cenotaphs of the Ranthore rulers. Out of all the cenotaphs on the property, six of them which are made of sandstone stand out exceedingly. They are buildings with intricate carvings, pillars and tall spires, elaborately adorned corridors and sculptural embellishments. You can also enjoy a picnic in the gardens, like the local population. There is also a government museum within the Mandore Gardens property which contains artefacts and relics from the 6th century. 

Why is Mandore Garden a Fabulous Attraction in Jodhpur ?

Umaid Bhawan Palace

If you want to take a break from all the crowded tourist-y places and fall into luxury’s lap, Umaid Bhawan Palace is the place for you! The newest construction on the list, the Palace was built in 1928. Built with yellow sandstone, it spreads over 26 acres. The Umaid Bhawan Palace houses the luxury Taj Hotel Resorts (since 1972).

jodhpur tourist place pictures

We are all always trying to gauge how to hold on to memories we make. This is especially true if you visit another city or country for vacation. Photography is, therefore, the best way to keep the memories preserved, as they get preserved virtually. If you didn’t have a photograph to remind you of a location you visited, you might forget some anecdotal instances, which will be sparked looking at the memory visually – through a photograph. And you need not take the financial burden of buying an expensive digital camera for your trip. Since most smartphones are already equipped with cameras that give a similar picture quality. So pack your bags to visit Jodhpur to enjoy yourself building memories, eating Rajasthani food. Also having a ball of a time at evening dance shows and, of course, taking loads of pictures to remember the blue city.

This Jodhpur itinerary has been designed to help you cover all the sightseeing places in Jodhpur so that you can enjoy everything that the blue city has to offer!

Best Time to Visit Jodhpur Rajasthan

  • Summer (April - June): All of Rajasthan becomes unbearably hot during the summer season. Sightseeing during these months can be really difficult so it’s best to avoid visiting Jodhpur during the summer season.
  • Monsoon (July - September): The rainy months from July to September bring relief from the heat but the downpours can turn the streets muddy.
  • Winter (October - March): The winter months are a good time to visit Jodhpur, particularly in October-November as well as February-March when the temperature is neither too hot nor too cold. The early and late winter months are the best time to visit Jodhpur city.

How to Reach Jodhpur Blue City

Jodhpur is a small city that can be covered via foot. Almost all of the popular sightseeing places in Jodhpur such as the old city, Mehrangarh fort, Jaswant Thada, clock tower, toorji ka jhalra, etc are located in close proximity to one another. Nonetheless, in order to visit places like Umaid Bhavan palace as mandore gardens, you will need to hire a tuk-tuk for half a day. Moreover, there is uber and ola available in Jodhpur so there are various options available for getting around Jodhpur city.

When it comes to finding hotels in Jodhpur, I recommend staying close to the old city of Jodhpur which is in close proximity to the Mehrangarh fort. This way you will be close to the majority of sightseeing spots and you’ll get a majestic view of the Mehrangarh fort.

Zostel Jodhpur

The view from the rooftop of Zostel Jodhpur

Zostel Jodhpur is a backpacker hostel that has dorms as well as private rooms. While there are so many wonderful things I can say about my stay here at Zostel Jodhpur, the best part was the prime location. Located right next to the toorji ka jhalra stepwell, Zostel Jodhpur overlooks the towering Mehrangarh Fort which is a mere 10-minute walk from the hostel. Moreover, the blue houses, Jaswant Thada, and the sunrise viewpoint are also all a 10-15 minute walk from the hostel.

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

5. Mandore Gardens

6. Rooftop Dinner for Night View of Mehrangarh Fort

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

2. Jaswant Thada

Jaswant Thada is just a short walk from the Mehrangarh fort. 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. While you’re visiting this place during your 2 day Jodhpur itinerary, don’t forget to look back and notice the impressive view of the Mehrangarh fort against the city of Jodhpur.

Open: Mon-Sun 9 am to 6 pm

The statue of Rao Jodha is situated close to the Jaswant Thada as well as the Mehrangarh fort. It looks particularly beautiful on a full moon night, lit up against the dark sky.

4. Clock Tower

The clock tower of Jodhpur is an iconic structure that is at the confluence of the new and old city. While you can go up the clock tower, what’s more exciting is the massive line-up of shops selling traditional clothing, jewelry, and curios along with the many little restaurants and street food stalls serving popular local food, snacks, and desserts. 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

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

Rajasthan local food - Daal baati churma

Ah, the food! When in Rajasthan, you cannot miss trying the famous local delicacy daal baati churma. I also tried pyaaz ki kachori , samosa and a dessert called rabdi in Jodhpur.

Where to Eat in Jodhpur Rajasthan

There are way too many restaurants in Jodhpur to try local dishes there. Bhawani is famous for its Rajasthani food. There is also a famous omelet stall near the clock tower, which was featured in a lonely planet guide. Just ask any local to point you in the direction of the stall. Shahi samosa is a little restaurant also near the clock tower that serves the best kachori and samosa that I’ve ever tasted.

15 Best Places to Visit in India, According to Travel Experts

From the alpine meadows of Kashmir to the palm-fringed beaches of Goa, these are some of the subcontinent’s most enchanting destinations.

Margot Bigg is a freelance travel writer and editor who has spent most of her adult life traveling and living overseas. Her favorite topics include India travel, experiential travel, wellness, hotels, and the arts. When not on the road, Margot enjoys studying languages, discovering new music, taking pictures of random cats, and planning her next adventures.

As a former longtime Delhiite and frequent traveler to India, people often ask me what the country is like. I never know how to respond, for trying to sum up a nation as vast and diverse as India feels impossible. So, instead, I asked a few experts for their insights.

“If you visit India, you feel you have visited several countries, as every part is different,” says Mohd Shafi Billo, an inbound tour operator who specializes in helping international travelers plan their trips to the country. “It’s an exceptional destination, thanks to its culture, history, and inclusiveness of different people from different faiths, and it has everything to offer, from forts to mausoleums, wildlife tours to mountain adventures.”  

Shoba Rudra, founder and partner at hospitality consultancy Rare India , agrees. “The country is living a dynamic moment in history, ever-changing,” she says. “What's constant, however, is the vibrant culture lived through its festivals, cuisine, heritage, crafts, and performing arts.”

While it would take years to see it all, India is an approachable destination — if you can narrow things down. With that in mind, here are 15 of the best places to get you started on your sojourn to the subcontinent.

Stretching along the southernmost part of India’s Malabar Coast, the tropical state of Kerala entices visitors with its marshy backwaters, which most people visit on overnight houseboat adventures. These popular cruises “showcase lush landscapes and peaceful villages, and [give visitors] a glimpse into local life amid tranquil waters and picturesque surroundings,” says Billo. While the backwaters are a star attraction, the state offers much more to explore, from the tea plantations of Munnar, known for its cool climate and seemingly endless rolling hills, to the historic city of Kochi, celebrated in equal measure for its rich coastal history and contemporary art scene . The beaches aren’t too shabby, either. “North Kerala is also famous, as the Malabar Coast is where the spice trade flourished,” says Rudra. “The coastal area is picturesque and this region is still unexplored.”

On the opposite end of the country from Kerala, Kashmir offers entirely different — but equally captivating — landscapes. With its alpine climate, evergreen trees, and snowy winters, Kashmir is often likened to a mini Switzerland . Famed 13th-century Sufi poet Amir Khusrau once proclaimed in Farsi, “If there is a paradise on earth, it is this,” and he may have been onto something. At the heart of it all is Srinagar, Kashmir’s capital city, which is known for its elegant gardens and watery centerpiece, Dal Lake. “Highlights include staying on a houseboat or taking a shikara [traditional Kashmiri boat] ride,” says Billo, who hails from the area. Don't leave without indulging in wazwan , an opulent, meat-heavy feast that can feature up to three dozen dishes in one sitting.

Occupying a high-altitude plateau in the northernmost reaches of India, Ladakh is characterized by otherworldly landscapes and big skies, punctuated by palatial stupas and monasteries. Many visitors come to Ladakh’s capital, Leh, during the short summer tourist season, but this surreal region offers plenty more to experience beyond the city. Billo suggests visiting the Nubra Valley, an isolated part of the old Silk Road that’s only accessible by crossing Khardung La, one of the world’s highest motorable passes. “The valley offers a glimpse into Ladakh's unique geography and cultural diversity with monasteries, quaint villages, and apricot orchards,” says Billo. The region is also rich with unusual wildlife, from elusive snow leopards to the scaled-down Bactrian camels that originated in the steppes of Central Asia.

Rishikesh, Uttarakhand

On the banks of the sacred Ganges River, the holy city of Rishikesh has held a place in the hearts of spiritually minded travelers — both from India and abroad — for generations. It’s the self-proclaimed “yoga capital of the world,” with a mix of traditional ashrams (spiritual rest houses) that cater largely to Hindu pilgrims and yoga centers that attract international visitors with teacher-training courses and meditation retreats. If you’re not into yoga, you’ll still find plenty to do here. Popular activities include visiting the ruins of the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi’s ashram (dubbed the Beatles Ashram in honor of its most famous former residents) to whitewater rafting adventures on the mighty Ganges. It’s also a great place for a wellness getaway, and nearby Ananda in the Himalayas was voted one of Travel + Leisure readers' favorite international spas in 2023.

Auroville, Tamil Nadu

If you’re looking for a place that’s unlike anywhere else in India — or, frankly, the world — head to the intentional community of Auroville in South India. This UNESCO-recognized global township was founded in the 1960s with the goal of "realizing human unity," beyond the illusory divisions of creed or nationality, and it's home to generations of residents from around the world. Many visitors come for an hour or two, just long enough to view Auroville’s spiritual center — the golden, dome-shaped Matrimandir . However, it’s worth sticking around a bit longer to get a feel for what the community is about. As Akash Kapur, who grew up in Auroville and authored " Better to Have Gone " and " India Becoming ," puts it: "Come to Auroville if you're interested in alternative societies, sustainable living, or spirituality, but try not to just drop in for a few hours (as many do), and instead spend some time here, really getting to know the people and their work. The community rewards sustained immersion."

Andaman Islands

Although most people associate the crystalline waters of the Andaman Sea with Thai island getaways, the Andaman and Nicobar Islands in this tropical region are under Indian control. This little stretch of paradise is full of gorgeous shorelines, but most visitors devote their vacations to the island of Swaraj Dweep (formerly known as Havelock). The most popular beach on the island is Radhanagar Beach , which offers just over a mile of white sand sandwiched between tropical jungle and warm, transparent waters. Getting to this remote island requires a bit of gumption: You'll need to fly from the Indian mainland to Port Blair on South Andaman Island, then catch a ferry or charter a seaplane for the final stretch. While visitors are welcome on many islands in the chain, a few — including secluded North Sentinel Island — are off-limits. 

While many travelers see India’s capital as a jumping-off point for visiting further-afield destinations, it’s worth sticking around for a while to truly appreciate what Delhi has to offer. There’s certainly never a dull moment in this busy metropolis, whether you’re shopping for handicrafts at one of its numerous markets or learning about medieval and Mughal history at one of its three UNESCO World Heritage Sites: Humayun's Tomb, Qutb Minar, and Red Fort. Although Delhi is undeniably rambunctious, it also has a quieter, more peaceful side that you can find amidst the trees and 15th-century tombs of Central Delhi’s Lodi Gardens or in the quiet interiors of the Baháʼí Lotus Temple.

Taj Mahal, Agra, Uttar Pradesh

Many travelers to India put the 17th-century Taj Mahal at the top of their list. This white marble mausoleum is easily India’s most recognizable structure — and it’s one of the New Seven Wonders of the World . This popular attraction also has a romantic backstory. “This iconic symbol of love is renowned for its architectural beauty, intricate marble work, and the captivating story behind its creation by emperor Shah Jahan in memory of his wife, Mumtaz Mahal,” notes Billo. The bodies of the emperor and his wife remain interred in the Taj to this day. 

Jaipur. Rajasthan

The capital of Rajasthan and one-third of North India’s popular Golden Triangle tourist route (which also includes Agra and Delhi), Jaipur is a must-visit for those who love architecture and shopping. “The Pink City, as it's nicknamed, offers a rich cultural heritage, stunning [landmarks] like Amber Fort, vibrant bazaars, and intricate handicrafts,” says Billo. Many of Jaipur's key attractions are found in the historic walled part of the city, which became a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2019. Highlights include Jantar Mantar (a collection of oversized — and fully functional — astronomical instruments dating to the 17th century) and Hawa Mahal, or Palace of the Winds, a honeycomb-shaped palace designed with tiny windows that allowed air to flow freely through its interior.

Jodhpur, Rajasthan

Dubbed the Blue City because of the cerulean-colored buildings that extend for miles through the oldest part of town, Jodhpur has long attracted travelers eager to explore the ramparts of the larger-than-life Mehrangarh Fort. It’s also home to the grandiose Umaid Bhawan Palace , which made headlines in 2018 when Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas tied the knot there. While Jodhpur’s beautiful, regal architecture is reason enough to visit, there’s more to the city than massive forts and grand palaces. “The area around the Toorji ka Jhalra stepwell in the old city is fun to explore,” says hotelier Sapna Bhatia, owner of Kaner Retreat and Jodhpur-area native. “For nature enthusiasts, there’s the Rao Jodha desert park near Mehrangarh Fort.”

Udaipur, Rajasthan

T+L readers' favorite city in Asia and second favorite city in the world , Udaipur very much fits the bill of a fairy tale destination. Nicknamed the City of Lakes, thanks to its seven lakes, this gorgeous destination is home to some of India's finest luxury hotels plus historic whitewashed palaces, including the magnificent City Palace, an 11-palace complex that houses hotels, a huge museum with an impressive collection of European crystal, and a royal residence. A short boat ride from the palace lies the 18th-century Taj Lake Palace, an opulent palace-turned-hotel in the middle of Lake Pichola. It’s a quick drive from The Oberoi, Udaivilas , a purpose-built palatial hotel with onion-domed cupolas and a moat-like swimming pool that directly connects to some of the rooms.  

If you’re looking for a less-frequented, but no less amazing, alternative to more touristed states such as Rajasthan, consider Gujarat. “Under-explored but culturally rich, this state in India is a tapestry of festivals, textiles, architectural heritage, communities, and landscape,” says Rudra. Gujarat was also the birthplace of Mahatma Gandhi, who led the Salt March, one of his most famous acts of peaceful protest, through the state in 1930. Rudra suggests visiting the National Salt Satyagraha Memorial , which “honors the activists through murals, installations, sculptures, art, and related film.” It's also worth checking out the Kutch district, known for its distinct metal bells , which were originally used for keeping track of livestock and are now popular as decorative wind chimes.

Kaziranga National Park, Assam

The northeast Indian state of Assam is home to a treasure for wildlife enthusiasts: Kaziranga National Park . This expansive, UNESCO-listed wildlife refuge near the borders of Bangladesh and Bhutan has the largest population of Indian one-horned rhinoceroses on the planet, providing a home to roughly 2,000 of these massive beasts. Although rhinos are the star attraction on park safaris, all sorts of animals live here, including tigers, elephants, gibbons, sloth bears, and a small number of endangered Ganges River dolphins. 

Historic, glitzy, and positively gargantuan, Mumbai (formerly known as Bombay) is easily one of India’s most cosmopolitan destinations. This city by the sea is the nation's financial and entertainment capital, and while you’re unlikely to rub shoulders with Bollywood stars here, you're sure to see a lot of impressive attractions in very little time. Take a boat out to Elephanta Island to explore fifth– and sixth–century rock-hewn cave temples, marvel at the grand Indo-Saracenic architecture at Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus , or see thousands of clothes hanging out to dry at Dhobi Ghat, the world's largest open-air laundry. Then, head to the sleek neighborhood of Bandra West, where many of Mumbai’s best restaurants and hotels are located, including Taj Lands End, voted T+L readers' favorite city hotel in India in 2023.

India’s smallest state, Goa, is arguably its top beach destination, where long days of swimming and sunbathing turn into longer nights of partying on the sand. While Goa has been known as a hippie haven since the 1960s, it's started to shed its reputation in recent decades. It’s still very much a party state, though it also draws in families and couples in search of sea and sun, sans nightlife. It’s a great place for history buffs as well, with numerous seaside forts and UNESCO-recognized churches that were built when Goa was under Portuguese rule. And while the destination has always been loved for its fiery dishes that combine traditional Konkani ingredients with Portuguese influences, it has also emerged as a culinary hot spot , where a new generation of chefs is showcasing everything from Japanese yakitori to jackfruit tamales.
