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.

The Pretty Spectacular Mandvi

The small but glowing landscape makes the Mandvi incredible and different from others. It is in the Kutch, Gujarat region. The beaches are something that don’t allow you to be in the hotel. After having the experience of Kutch, I have reached to the place and when I see the offering of the nature, my madness gets the direction. I am there in the Month of October and that is the time when the place has the beauty in its best and it continues still march.

I give a day to the beach. Just enjoy the water, ride and more in its bag. Water is really cold and cool. Don’t forget to take the foot massage with cool sea water that is the treat that nature offers while you walk along the soft sand.

When you drive through the city, you must find the Ship Building Yard which Mandvi is famous for. You can stop here and try climbing one of those ships under works. Is not something that is differently cool? Yes! I find that also and believe me each moment gives me a lot good experiences that even I can’t brief you in these words.

Vijay Vilas Palace is the another spot that makes Mandvi more beautiful. If you are a Bollywood movie lover, then it seems to you that this is something you have seen before. Actually, this is the palace that is used the famous movie Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam. You find here antique furniture and their love towards hunting. You may be scared to see the tigers and all, don’t worry those are models. 🙂 You can choose the place as your staying option and enjoy the private beach but for that you have to spend little more.

Pandit Shyamji Krishna Verma’s memorial is also a great place to explore. Here, I am pleased to know the freedom fighter even more closure and in the way, the presentation is done that is appreciable. Time I have spent here that helps me to own knowledge and satisfaction and make my memories more wiser than my expectation.

Your traveling will be incomplete if you don’t take your meal from Osho. The place where the restaurant is situated that is not impressive one but when you get the food, you just ask yourself is that possible relishing that much of mouthwatering food, that to be in Rs. 110? And the best part is their hospitality. If you don’t want to repeat again, then the server becomes sad. The thali is rich with the street food as well, so not to worry, you get everything.

Really, my travel diary, Be A Bird gets the right treat from that place.
