quiet retreat from the hustle and bustle of the lively town of Jodhpur.

supplied drinking water to the city. A splendid specimen of traditional
Rajasthan architecture in red sandstone, set within extensive gardens, it
continues to be an idyllic setting for royal leisure and recreation.
Only eight kilometers from the heart of Jodhpur city, the delicately carved
Bal Samand Lake Palace with its immaculate gardens and lush green lawns, its
sprawling orchards and sparkling waterways, is a world apart. Incredibly
serene, this is the ideal location for that unrushed holidays.

Founded in 1459 by Rao Jodha, Jodhpur is the second largest city in
Rajasthan after Jaipur. Eight gates lead out from the Walled City. It;s one
of India's more interesting cities and it is from here that those baggy
tight horse-riding trousers-jodhours-take their name.
The world -famous Mehrangarh Fort dominates the skyline of Jodhpur. From
its ramparts, one can see where the old city ends and the new one begins. It
is fascinating wandering around the old parts of the city, browsing through
the antique shops or experiencing the ambience of this chaotic, bustling,
sun-struck city of red sandstone.
