Morning proceed for half day guided sightseeing tour would cover a visit to Mehrangarh Fort, Jaswant Thada and Umaid Bhawan Palace Museum.
As Rajasthan’s largest fort, Mehrangarh forms a looming presence over Jodhpur. Visible from miles around, it is a grand statement of Rajput valor. Its construction
was started around 1459 by the king known as the founder of Jodhpur, Rao Jodha and is believed to have been completed by Raja Jeswant Singh in the second half of the 17th century. There are several palaces inside the fort. The fort offers magnificent panoramic view of the city.
Jaswant Thada is situated on the left side of Fort Mehrangarh, in fact between the fort and the city. Well maintained gardens welcome you inside the compound, and provide a great base to sit back and reflect on what you’ve seen and experienced. This cenotaph was built by Sardar Singhji in memory of his father.
Umaid Bhawan Palace is one of the last palaces built in India. It was built in 1944 by Maharaja Umaid Singh. The king was attracted very much to the western style of living. The palace reflects his taste, as it is one of the rare palaces in India whose architecture is distinctly western.
With 347 rooms, it was at the time the largest private residence in the world. Gaj Singh, the present owner, has divided the Palace into three functional parts. The first is a luxury heritage hotel run by the Taj group since 1977. The second forms the residence of the erstwhile royal family, and the third is an area open to public that houses among others a small museum. The museum's collection includes royal finery, local art and craft, miniature paintings, stuffed big cats, and a large number of clocks.

Pushkar is a well-known Hindu pilgrim center and also famous for its annual cattle fair. The Pushkar Lake and the Brahma temple are the most important sites here. According to legends, Pushkar Lake was surrounded by 500 temples and 52 palaces (several rajas and maharajas maintained palaces here for pilgrimage) at one point.

It is interesting to note that Brahma is not worshipped, even though he is one of the Holy Trinity of Hinduism.
