Historically speaking, Jodhpur in Rajasthan was founded in 1459 by a local tribal chieftain Rao Jodha, the then ruler of the Rathore clan. Jodhpur comprises lavish palaces, temples, delicious food and lively festivals. Of the most popular, on a Jodhpur tour, a must explore is the Umed Bhawan Palace.
Umed Bhawan Palace was one the last royal constructions and today, it stands divided into three parts. One is converted into a five-star hotel, one the residence of the royal family and one is open to the public which exhibits few pictures, weapons, arms, swords and other artifacts of the royal family.

These house a remarkable collection of trappings of Indian royalty. When on a Jodhpur tour, visit the Jaswant Thada built on 1899.
