On the edge of the desert lies Jodhpur, a city which retains its old world charm and tradition. An island of craggy red sandstone in a shimmering sea of sand. Situated on a jagged outcrop or rock and surrounded by a great wall, Jodhpur was the stronghold of the Maharajas of the Rathore Dynasty whose antiquity dates back to the 5th Century and beyond-to times when myth and history merged without distinction.
