The flowers didn’t grow upside-down. The structure built here is not of gold!
Still, there’s a sense of alluring quietness in the broken architecture that shouts out loud to understand the history and explore the land with an uncovered eyes lens.
Because it’s Rajasthan – na Jaane kya dikh Jae
How to Get to Mandore Garden from Clock Tower Jodhpur?
There is the availability of Autos and Buses to the Mandore Garden. So no need to bother in terms of reaching there.
The Ghanta Ghar Jodhpur (Clock Tower) to Mandore Garden distance is proximately 8km. The auto driver will charge around Rs. 150 – Rs.200. It would be more beneficial if you travel in a group to avoid overspending.

There are no entry fees to visit the Mandore Garden, and it remains opens every day.
The surroundings are lush green and attractive after all, it’s a garden. But it will be quite a unique garden experience.
Personally, I haven’t seen a garden spread across huge, and that will also have monuments to appreciate.
Presence of Monkeys
Be informed that the monkeys are scattered everywhere in the Mandore Garden. But to some extent, not throughout particularly.
You’ll be accompanied by the monkeys, NA! They won’t do anything to you until you decide to act clever with them. After all, they are the smartest amongst all.
I can assure you that from your 48hrs in Jodhpur Blue City, you can spend your minimum of 2-3 hrs magically in the Mandore Garden. But, if you are a photographer, then the whole day there might be less.
Because the surreal 360-degree view all around will make you say WOW.
You can also hear the Folk melody being composed by the individuals of Rajasthan.
People get so involved in their swing that it can be viewed in the eyes and movement without a doubt.
Can you imagine these scenes evolve into real life for you?
Overall, you’ll have an immeasurable time in the Mandore Garden from the perspective to explore.

2. Walk in the Jodhpur Blue City
Jodhpur Blue City isn’t blue all. You will not even realize from the ground level the bulk blue color and its richness.
You will get a clear look from a height such as from Mehrangarh fort or other height elevated places.
Even you can easily classify the different saturation of Blue – light blue, dark blue, or even the changes in a hue like cyan, azure, and many more.
You will see not only blue color but yeah a combination of other eye-catching colors too.
Moreover, the combination of Green – Blue, and Red – Blue takes the eyes.
Colorful Doors spotted while exploring Jodhpur Blue City
It feels so damn refreshing! To be honest.
The colors are attractive to the eyes.
You will find an area of Jodhpur known as Blue city. When you began walking towards Mehrangarh Fort, you will start seeing houses painted Blue from toe to top.
From my viewpoint, you can effortlessly cover the streets on your own rest apart Blue City Walking tour perpetually occurs every day or the another.
If you’re not much interested in knowing the history while walking on the streets. Then you can explore on your own for sure.
Vice-Versa, a walking tour would be a good selection here.
I can’t exactly tell the cost of the Jodhpur Blue city walk tour. It certainly depends upon several factors. Since this article is based on my experience, it would roughly cost you around Rs.200-Rs.300 per person and takes about 3 hrs to get finished.
A state like Rajasthan is too hot to handle during the Afternoon, so in that case, early morning and evening would be a definite time for the Jodhpur Blue City walk.
Thoughts Summing Up in Few Lines
I am still awake, Roaming around the streets till late,
It’s not just a Walk, Neither a way to time pass,
I am Adoring the Surround All-around
I am Spotting the Blue Hey, What’s that color cast? No Clue!
Will the journey end soon? Forget it! Sitting on the rooftop to contemplate the moon.
I am still awake, Roaming around till late.
I don’t drink, neither I take, But I am still awake
Would you be still awake, To roam the streets till late?
A good 3 hrs walk in the Jodhpur streets will make your day.
People get connected when they love their time spent. The blue city of India is not an exception.
3. Pachetiya Hills to Witness the Sunset
I know you love sunset!
Actually, Both for Mandore Garden & Pachetiya Hills, I couldn’t justify the spot to see the magical eye-soothing sunset.
It’s up to you. You could choose the next day’s Sunset plan as well if you were in any confusion choosing amongst these two places.
The Jodhpur blue city and the sunset colors, I can’t recall about more pleasing than this.
I used to tell people about the Bir Billing Sunset and the paragliding during that golden hour. But, Jodhpur created a unique space for a lot of reasons apart from that Blue hue.
Yeah, sunset is amongst those reasons. It felt like it is entering someone’s rooftop. Okay, that was enough of the childish talks 😅.
Back to the exploration mode,
It will be like a combined benefit of a Blue city walk ending on Pachetiya hill to witness the sunset.
A Walk of about 1hr – 2hr around the Blue city and, you can end up on the Pachetiya hills viewing the dusk.
The charming lanes guiding you gently up with every inch forward will be worth the effort.
Someone once asked –
Thoughts Summing Up in Few Lines
Do you hate long walks?
I am here to explore, Not to sit in one place anymore.
I am here for a dream, For the one, I scream
I don’t hate long walk, Would you accompany me with your talk?
I am here to live, cry, shout aloud 10 years later, I wanted to say I did it and so proud!
Yes, I love walks Accompany me with your lovely talks.
So, Pacheytia Hills will be a mind-blowing addition to your visit to the Jodhpur Blue City.
If you had noticed one thing, the places I had mentioned involve a lot of Walking. I wanted you to enter every lane to feel the emotions, definitely not entering someone’s house without permission telling that I wanted to feel the sentiments.
Exploring Jodhpur Streets and clicking pictures will become your topmost memory.
Every lane has something to say, and you just need to make up your emotions and start clicking street pictures.
But, be sure to politely ask before including anyone you don’t know in the picture.
Rest you can do Street Photography wholeheartedly and like no place other.
Gentle Reminder – When you are on the streets, just don’t forget to eat from Chaturbuj Gulab Jamun near Sarafa Bazar.
One piece of Gulab Jamun will cost Rs.22, and it is damn delightful.
Okay, we were on the Jodhpur streets doing Photography.
The Blue city of India is soo rich in colors that you can’t resist yourself taking pictures every 100m. So, do us. Here, you can see behind-the-scenes photography from Jodhpur.
The Ghanta Ghar side area is considerably crowded.
Let me share with you my experience –
I personally share with you my experience that I am hesitant to do Street Photography for some reasons. I get accompanied by people who were having the interest in Photography as I have. The hesitancy left like wonders.
The point I wanted to share is when you’re in a like-minded group, then the feeling of doing something half-heartedly fades away.
I believe 48hrs in your Jodhpur Blue City trip would be an awesome & fascinating one.
I had tried to present the doable points that do not involve rush from one place to another. You have your time to explore around loosely.
