Living in Jodhpur

With just over a million residents, Jodhpur is the second largest city in Rajasthan, India. It has long been a popular tourist destination, in part due to the profusion of forts, palaces and temples dotted around the city. The blue houses around one of these attractions, the Mehrangarh Fort, gave Jodhpur its nickname of “The Blue City”. Its popularity with travelers has made it one of India’s more cosmopolitan cities and those tourists still flock to Jodhpur to visit sights like the spectacular Umaid Bhawan Palace, home to the former Jodhpur royal family and one the largest private residences in the world. Its central location has made Jodhpur a convenient base from which to explore Rajasthan and also led to it becoming an important economic center. It is a recognized cultural melting pot and expats living in Jodhpur will find many other international residents. InterNations is a great hub where you can connect with these global minds and find out more about the city.
