The Jodhpur city is surrounded by a 10 km long wall with
eight gates serving as entrances. The new city is settled
around this walled area.
In Jodhpur, the genius of its sculptors comes to life in its
exquisite palaces, forts, temples and havelis, which stand
testimony to the imperial grandeur. The most alluring part
of Jodhpur is the traditional lifestyle, festivity and the
smiling people who treasure this former princely state.
