HolidayIQ Reviewer Subodh Bisht adds, “It is a time I shared about our boat ride at Fateh Sagar Lake. We reached Nehru Park which is situated in the midst of the lake, enjoyed the place, and took some photographs over there. Later, we went to see the Puppet Show. It was an amazing experience of a live show. I enjoy live music but enjoyed this too. Overnight, we stayed at a hotel to visit Kumbhalgarh. Next morning, the 15th of August 2014, it was time to visit Kumbhalgarh. We started the drive to visit Eklingji temple but did not visit that temple because there was too much of a crowd and I have a problem with crowded areas. But as per my sister, it was a good example of great architecture.” Read Full Review

Do not forget the camel and Jeep safaris – it is a once in a lifetime experience ” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Saurabh Gupta adds, “When you come out of the fort after all wonderful attractions, you and your family can enjoy camel rides and folk dances by artists in the parking ground. All I can say is if you're in Jodhpur and haven't visited the Mehrangarh Fort, then it's an incomplete visit. Don't miss the shops in the fort which gives a flavor of the Jodhpur local markets. The major attractions here are Fort Sheesh Mahal (The Hall of Mirrors); Phul Mahal (The Palace of Flowers); Takhat Vilas; Moti Mahal (The Palace of Pearls); Galleries like Elephant Howdah Gallery, Palanquins Gallery, Daulat Khana Gallery, Painting Gallery, and Sileh Khana; arms, turbans, cradles, woodcraft, Textile, Nagnechi Ji Temple, Chamunda Devi Temple and Folk musical Instrument Gallery. ” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Arunav Singh adds, “The Wagah Border is one of the most famous borders between India and Pakistan and every evening there is a gate closing ceremony wherein there is music, dance, and a lot of cheering and jeering, as well. There is the insanely awesome closing ceremony when the flag is brought down. 1. Your throat will definitely go sore, so make sure to get some Strepsils beforehand. 2. Cheer at the top of your voice along with everyone and feel the proud Indian inside you. 3. Dance if you desire to patriotic songs alongside your fellow countrymen and women. 4. Watch the procedure carefully and see the precision and hidden fire inside the army men who perform the ceremony. ” Read Full Review
