I have been to three places to see Sunset in Jodhpur during my stay.
I assume that you love to watch Sunset, Holding No doubt!
At one point, you can say that you usually wake up late, so you don’t like Sunrises. But I don’t think there are any justifications in the case of Sunsets. Are there any?
This article will take you to 3 different Sunset points in Jodhpur. These are also some of the places to visit in Jodhpur.
The clear view of Sunsets is distinctly noticeable from a height. But what does that mean here?
Okay! You are clever enough to get the point.
In the places I mentioned in the article, most of these require you to walk to reach height. It doesn’t mean that the route will be troublesome to walk. But the pathway is clear enough assured. Overall, you would have a remarkable experience.
Viewing Sunset in Jodhpur is the most relaxing thing to do in the evening after the sultry afternoon.
3 Sunset Points in Jodhpur for a Gorgeous Sight
I had extended my three-day Jodhpur trips to 7 days to explore the city; on an alternative day, I had been to various places to view the Sunset.
There remained no more suitable thought to finish a day apart from watching a Sunset!
I have mentioned below the three places you can end your day eye soothingly in the Jodhpur Blue city.
To remain on time, leave at least 2 hr before Sunset in the places stated below.
1. Kaylana Lake
The Sunset point in Jodhpur on the Kaylana lakeside is calming with a cool temperature towards the evening.
To provide you an approx. The idea, Ghanata Ghar to Kaylana lake, is approximately 10km.
You can catch an Auto to reach Kaylana lake. The Auto will take about Rs.100 – Rs.150 from Ghanta Ghar. If you are progressing solo, the cost of arriving at the lake will appear a little costly.
There is also a parking space, so if you’re bringing your vehicle, it would be handy.
According to the season you visit, a good 40 – 50 minutes before the Sunset time (according to the season you visit) will make you see a Sunset at Kaylana Lake. Even the Sunset can be visible during boating on the lake.
While I was snapping, the fellow mate captured me.
If Sunset is not the only reason to visit the lake, you can consider boating on Kaylana lake.
The boating would be amongst the things you can do apart from seeing Sunset.
Boating on the Kaylana Lake
The boating time on the lake begins at 9 a.m and finishes at the Sunset. It remains open on all days.
There are two kinds of boating you can do –
- Speed boating
Motorboating on the Kaylana lake
The Motorboating on the Kaylana lake will rate Rs. 100 per person. The time will be 15-20 mins round the lake. The maximum limit of the boat is 10-11 people.
Additionally, Life jackets remain provided.
Speedboating on the Kaylana lake
Whereas, Speedboating will rate Rs.200 per person. The time will be 5 mins round the lake. The maximum limit of the boat is five people.
However, there are no entrance fees to see Kaylana lake, but you have to pay for the boating if you opt for any.
You can view the Sunset color tones appearing on the lake and making it shine while on the boat.
A delightful Sunset to watch besides the lake, I would say!

2. Mandore Gardens
The route to Kaylana Lake and Mandore garden is in the opposite direction.
It is more satisfying to plan an idea of covering both the places at the Sunset during your 48hrs Jodhpur trip. But, in case of including everything on a particular day, what will happen is you will finish up on the way, reaching neither on time.
Kaylana Lake to Mandore Garden, the distance is about 15km. Ghanta Ghar to Mandore Garden is approximately 8km.
The Mandore Garden remains spread in a large area. Therefore, there are many points where you can walk to reach a noticeable height to watch the Sunset.
There exist no entrance fees to the Mandore Garden. But, you wouldn’t feel crowded as Mandore Garden is a scattered area. Therefore, enough scope to shout out loud!
I am keeping my humor aside!
But, yeah, you can shout aloud.
Apart from seeing the Sunset, you can visit the temples in the Mandore Garden. All the temples are within a few steps away from each other.
Also, so many langurs make the garden look more appealing. Some might be sitting on the wall, on the tree, hanging in the field, or jumping around.
It would help if you asked the direction inside to reach a noteworthy height to watch the Sunset. Because the garden remains spread large, the thought of asking someone to guide would be most beneficial.
Timings to Visit Mandore Garden
There’s no opening and closing time of the Mandore Garden because people also come here for a morning and evening walk. So probably, until the sunlight is out, it is a definite time to visit the garden.
3. Rao Jodha Desert Rock Park
Rao Jodha Desert Rock Park is the next stop where you can see a Sunset in Jodhpur.
The Ghanta Ghar to Rao Jodha Desert Rock Park distance is 3-4 km approximately.
The Auto will charge you Rs. 30-Rs.50 and the time required to reach will be 20mins approximately.
The Rao Jodha Park exists right aside from the Mehrangarh Fort. There’s no way to go to Rao Jodha Park directly from Mehrangarh fort.
Entrance fees to Rao Jodha Park
The Rao Jodha Desert Park Entry fee is Rs.100 per person. The Opening and Closing timings are 7 a.m to 6 p.m. respectively.
If you consider my opinion, try to move out of the Desert Park before it becomes dark because you will go to a higher altitude to watch Sunset. But unfortunately, there exist no lights on the rugged path. So, it’s better to take the essential measures before any misadventure.
Consider reading, An Unexpected Hike to see the Breathtaking Badi Lake in Udaipur.
During ticket collection at the entrance of Rao Jodha Park, the person would give the ticket. The map will show all the directions and act as a guide.
The map clearly shows the Do’s and Don’ts and other relevant directions.
Also, there are small signboards that take you to various routes.
The Rao Jodha Park is quite large. So, don’t plan to cover all during the time of Sunset. Instead, arrive a few hours before the evening time and move accordingly. Then, You can prepare to explore the Desert Park with a map accompanying you.
It will be a different experience because nowadays, we hardly see the use of a map or at least a map anywhere.
What to Wear before Going to Rao Jodha Desert Park?
You will imagine it is a park; what different can we wear?
As so, it’s not a park as compared to the park that most of you comprehend or go to daily. There will be no people exercising or jogging. Instead, please take it as a rocky desert with rough paths.
I consider now that you can create a picture in your mind. So why Imagine when I can show you the picture right now?
Thorns can be a hindrance in your mission to view Sunset in Jodhpur.
I suggest that you wear shoes and jeans. Eventually, the goal is not to reveal the areas where the likelihood of thorns coming into contact with you is high.
- Wearing covered clothes like – Jeans
- Appropriate footwear
Full sleeves clothes would work best in this exploration.
Make sure the conditions of shoes would be first-class as well.
Because I wore casual shoes on the visit to Rao Jodha Desert Park, the path remains rugged, as I had informed you earlier in this article. Unfortunately, my shoes were also not in good condition, so; they became almost torn. Hopefully, that doesn’t occur that day. However, to be on the more protected side, you should wear appropriate footwear.
My shoes became torn on the last day in Jodhpur. So ultimately, I have to buy new ones.
From my experience, I consider Rao Jodha Desert Park as the best Sunset point to see Sunset in Jodhpur.
