Jodhpur


Umaid Bhavan Palace

Earlier, Jodhpur was a state, and the capital of the state was Marwar. Jodhpur is also known as the Sun City, because it has a sunny weather all year round. The old city is surrounded by a stone wall. Geographically, Jodhpur lies in the centre of Rajasthan.

Umaid Bhavan Palace was built by Maharaja Umaid Singh and is also named after him. The palace was built over a period of years, from 1929 to 1943. There was a famine in Jodhpur, so the Palace was built as an employment project for the people. The palace is the largest private residence in the world. It has 347 rooms and a part of the palace houses the Jodhpur royal family.
