History
Located at the edge of the Thar Desert, the royal city of Jodupur still echoes with the tales of antiquity. Once the capital of the Marwar state, it was founded in 1459 AD by Rao Jodha- Chief of the Rathod clan of Rajputs. A major trade center of the 16th century AD, the Fortress City of Jodhpur is surrounded by a 10-km long wall that was built about a century after the city was founded.
