Take a journey back in time and enjoy a stroll through the old city of Jodhpur. Life in Jodhpur is focused very much around the Fort. The bazars of the old city are gathered around the tall clock tower with the different areas assigned to different trades. Jalori Gate and Sojati Gate are especially famous for the Bandhni fabric makers, where the fabric is tied in intricate patterns with the help of nails, beads or grain, thus preventing seepage of color into the tied areas during dyeing. Continue to explore the lively local markets and take in the heady aroma of spices. As you walk the streets you will get glimpses of many interesting things as you pass fabric dyers dipping in yards of fabric into huge pots of boiling colors and magically transforming its appearance, puppet makers lovingly creating his characters, which will soon entertain the crowds, and spice vendors selling exotic spices that are not just ingredients that add flavour and aroma to foods but have been known to have magical healing powers. Marvel at the infinite details that have been painstakingly pieced together in different patterns of the numerous havelis (mansions). The vividness of the city remains with you as you return to your hotel!
