  • 3 Days: Essential Jodhpur-LP

    3 Days: Essential Jodhpur

    One of the great cities of Rajasthan, Jodhpur draws polo players, spiritualists and antiques dealers who flock to the Maharajah’s palace and marvel at the city’s wonders. With a customized itinerary that features guided touring, special-access, and classes, Indagare can help you make the most of your journey. Here is just one example of what our destination experts can create for you.


    • Day One: Historic Jodhpur

      Start your sightseeing adventures in Jodhpur with a private visit to the Umaid Bhawan Palace, the Clock Tower Market and the Mehrangarh Fort, which stands 400-feet above the city and encompasses several breathtaking palaces. Indagare’s special after-hours visit includes a curator tour, champagne on the ramparts at sunset, and dinner in the beautiful Chowkelao Garden.

    • Day Two: Shopping Jodhpur

      Jodhpur is a magnet for interior designers. We recommend working with a trusted local guide who knows the best sources and can help with negotiating. Indagare can arrange a tour with an expat expert who will bring you to the best stalls in the Old City Bazaar, which is known for its craft stores for jewelry, lacquer ware, fabrics puppets, and leather products, as well as the warehouses of furniture and antiques.

    • Day Three: Explore the City

      From Jodhpur, you can explore the Bishnoi tribal villages in the countryside, walk through the markets of the walled city, participate in a yoga and meditation workshop, and have a private cooking lesson and dinner with a local family. You can also immerse yourself in Jodhpur’s rich culinary scene by sampling its finest restaurants and tasting such Rajasthani specialties.

Eliza Scott Harris, Indagare's COO
“The moments of majesty were many: mountaintop forts of spectacular scale concealing interior courtyards lined with scalloped archways; city palaces with delicately painted colonnades of breathtaking harmony; Hindu temples with layer upon layer of intricate stone carving; towering mosques in dramatic red stone. Our guide helped us hit monuments at just the right time.”
Fiona Caulfield, author of the travel guides LOVE India
I visited a jeweler in Jodhpur who makes the bangles for the region’s royal family, but his shop is quite literally a hole in the wall. It is such a lovely experience to slow down and meander through the back lanes of the market.”
