Personal Experiences : 


 Visiting Jodhpur is a bit different from any other cities of Rajasthan as it shows some uniqueness. As this is one of most populated cities and there are many tourist places in this city so it takes some time to visit this. This is famous for its food, culture and heritage. The taste of food is very different i.e. it is spicy and different in flavour.
