Phalodi Overview

Popularly known as the 'Salt City', Phalodi is a city in the Jodhpur District in the state of Rajasthan. It is surrounded by Bikaner in the north-east, Nagaur in the east and Jaisalmer in the south-west. It is situated 115 km away from Jodhpur and is known for its street bazaars and sandstone mahals. Phalodi is the second largest town and the sub-division headquarters of Jodhpur District.

Founded in the 15th century, Phalodi was initially named as Phalvaridhika. Phala requested her father Shri Sidhu Kalla to rename this place as Phalodi. Shri Sidhu Kalla was the chief contributor for the building of the Phalodi Fort which is located in the eastern part of the city. This destination was originally under the rule of Rao Maldev Rathore of Jodhpur. For a short span of time Phalodi came under the direct rule of Akbar.

Phalodi is famous for its temples and havelis. These temples are over 300 years old and the havelis are royal in style. The specialities of these havelis are the traditional Jharokhas, spacious courtyards and fascinating interiors. It is also known for its 'Jootis' (special type of shoes) and glass bangles.

Phalodi enjoys a rich culture. The local women of Phalodi wear beaded and silver jewellery with bright coloured clothes. Apart from this, turbans are worn by the local men and this orthodox style of dressing up stays consistent throughout Phalodi. Hindi and Rajasthani are the languages spoken in and around Phalodi.

The main tourist attractions in Phalodi are Latiyal Mata Temple and Ramdevra temples. The Jain Temple which was built in 1750 is a finely carved masterpiece in itself. This haveli is built out of red coloured sandstone and looks wonderful with artefacts on the wall.

Phalodi can be approached quite easily as it is well connected by air, rail and road. This place is connected by road from Mumbai, Delhi, Nagpur, Jodhpur and Bikaner. The Phalodi railway station also caters to many trains coming from all major cities like Delhi, Jodhpur, Jaipur, Bikaner, Lalgarh and Jaisalmer. Jodhpur, which is 120 km away from Phalodi, is the nearest airport to it.

The best time to visit Phalodi is during the winters which stretch from the months of October to February.
