HolidayIQ Reviewer Saurabh Gupta adds, “Invincible and mighty Fort The name Mehrangarh began to appear in chronicles and poems. Mehra is a Rajasthani word for the Sun and it is not at all unlikely that the Suryavanshi Rathores (Sun Dynasty) would name their first citadel in their mythological ancestors honor. One has to visit the Fort to realize the sheer massive size of it. ”

HolidayIQ Reviewer Nitish Varshney adds, “A Nostalgic Spiritual Place Hills and temples are two places that are incomplete without each other. Same goes with Bhim Badak Cave Temple. I wonder why this place is still underrated by those who visit Jodhpur. It is inside the military radar area but one can visit this temple and nearby hill area from 7 AM to 7 PM. ”

If you know Hindi join the group else it may not be useful. ...It is advised to walk from the entrance as one can enjoy the beautiful designs”

HolidayIQ Reviewer Traveler Sudha Kapooradds, “Ranthambore national park is situated near Sawai Madhopur Rajasthan. Its nice place to see the wildlife in its natural habitat. It's famous for Tigers but one can see variety of birds. The park has lakes where one can see the crocodiles. Other wildlife are jackals, hyena, boars and varieties of deers. The experience of going to jungle in open jeep /canter is awesome. There are many resorts and hotels near the parks. The experience is very different than any other jungle safari..”
