The city of Jodhpur, Rajasthan

February, 2009
Jodhpur, Rajasthan

Five year ago, when I was supposed to pack my bag with books and notebooks to leave for my 8:40am lecture of Political Science in my college, I was dodging the thick fog on Chandigarh-Delhi Highway to reach Rajasthan. I had to meet my friend and switch cars at Kurukshtra. After driving for a day, and stopping at numerous tea shops to chat with local people, we reached Jodhpur.

For the foodies might already know this but even if you don’t, Jodhpur is famous for its Pyaz Kachori. It is so delicious, that an airline pilot had to face suspension to get them.

An Air India pilot faces suspension after she defied orders to switch her scheduled Mumbai-Jodhpur-Delhi flight for a direct flight from Mumbai to Delhi. She wanted to fly via Jodhpur to pick up famous onion kachoris from there. – The Times of India

Apart from the delicious food, the city is famous for its blue coloured houses around Mehrangarh Palace.

In the comments, do share your favourite eating joints in Jodhpur. (I love food)

Here are some pictures from Jodhpur. Hope you like them.

Cheers!
