|Umaid Bhawan Jodhpur|
Sheesha Mahal - The Hall Of MirrorsIt is a fine example of a typical Rajput Sheesh Mahal. The mirror-work includes large, regular pieces, rather than an intricate mosaic of tiny fragments; another thing is the superimposition over the mirror-work of brightly painted religious figures made in plaster.
Phool Mahal - The Palace Of Flowers The Phool Mahal was created by Maharaja Abhaya Singh (1724-1749). The grandest of Mehrangarh's period rooms the Phool Mahal was in all likelihood a private and exclusive chamber of pleasure; dancing girls once swooned in exhaustion here under a ceiling rich in gold filigree.
Umaid Bhawan Palace is named after Maharaja Umaid Singh, grandfather of the present owners of the palace, this monument has 347 rooms and serves as the principal residence of the erstwhile Jodhpur royal family. Part of the palace has been converted to a hotel and another part has a museum housed in it.

The city of Jodhpur is now on the international tourist map and also a big hit with the domestic tourists for leisure and conference. Jodhpur is almost an integral part of your Rajasthan itinerary also because of it's strategic location. I had a wonderful time at Jodhpur in my two days stay.
Next in line was Udaipur, and I had to go by road to Udaipur as Jodhpur to Udaipur has no train connection(strangely).
