Jodhpur Travel

Jama Masjid - Delhi


Famous City of Jodhpur Rajasthan

The second largest City of Rajasthan, Jodhpur , is a silent but courtly testament of the chivalrous Rathores who founded the City and ruled it for decades. Jodhpur was founded in 1459 by Rao Jodha, after whom the City was rechristened from Mewar to Jodhpur. It represents the rich royal traditions and culture in the sandy deserts of Thar.

Jodhpur Travel is known for its Forts, Palaces and Temples displaying a glorious history and architectural brilliance. The buildings of the Jodhpur City are dipped in blue hues, making it seem to reflect the endless sky and giving Jodhpur a kind of uniformity. The blue color marked the residential spaces of the Brahmins, which was started to be followed by the non-Brahmins too.

History of Jodhpur:
The Rathore clan of Rajputs used to flourish in Kannauj, before being ousted by Afghans, led by Mohommad Ghori. From here they eluded to Pali, a near Jodhpur Place. The Rathores got a stronghold in this region after the marriage of Rathore Siahaji's marriage to a local prince. Initially, they established their base at Mandore, after driving out the Pratiharas but later they gained a foothold in Jodhpur, erstwhile Marwar, which was a more stable and secure capital.

Delhi

Jodhpur retain its independence during the Mughal reigns and shared harmonious relations with them, except with Aurangzeb. After Aurangzeb's death, Maharaja Ajit Singh took over Ajmer from the Mughals. Under Umed Singh's regimen, the City grew as a cultural centre and a trade hub. It flourished with the returns of opium, sandalwood and copper trade, supported by its location on the Delhi-Gujarat trade route. After several battles of the 17th and the 18th century, a treaty was signed with the British empire to gain peace in the region and after the country gained independence in 1947, it was included in the Sate of Jodhpur Rajasthan.
