Jodhpur-The Blue City

After saying a tearful goodbye to Jaisalmer, we went to  Jodhpur.

The first place we explored that was Mehrangarh Fort. Inside the Fort, we saw guns, swords, cannons etc of that time. The perfect set-up of TOG was witnessed at the entrance of the Fort. We saw the entire blue city from the top of the Mehrangarh  Fort. That was an excellent place for clicking photos and getting memories. Then we went to Jaswant Thada. There while we all were praying to God, I felt that anyone entered me. I couldn’t believe, we were just meeting with the famous Indian singer Ill Arun. It was a wonderful moment and her humble nature was truly impressive.

The next day, we visited the Umaid Bhawan Palace. It is set in twenty-six acres and of which fifteen are garden. It took half a  million donkey loads of earth for the garden beds, a hundred wagon-loads of Makarna marble, two-and-a-half million Quintals of ice, a million meters of steel conducts, fifteen thousand running feet of copper and lead wire weighing two hundred tons, an electric network of 2500 KW of the main palace along a three hundred ton compressor for the air conditioning plant. The entire project cost was Rs. 94,51,565 at that time. Seriously, I got to know various interesting factors and the exhibition of the vintage car was also the zone I never forgot. Surely, the same is for each of us. Then we went to the guest house and did the lunch. Then we set out to Rohtak and stayed a night there. The next day, we returned Delhi. This was an end of our epic journey to Bikaner, Jaisalmer, and Jodhpur.

I have the best trip ever in my life. Surely, waiting for the next family trip that my parents are going to offer.
