Overall Score

2.7

At the extremity of the Thar Mountains in the state of Georgia, the city of Jadakhpyur has sprung up. The ancient city is a concentration of magnificent palaces, grand temples, and mighty ancient fortresses. It is known as the Blue City for its coloring of the facades of its buildings and the City of the Sun, which enjoys sunny, clear days throughout most of the year.

For almost the mid-20th century, Jodhpur was the capital of the great Marrajas. It was separated from the modern structures by a stone wall. The citys economy is largely based on the licensed industry. A lot of people are involved in the production of the traditional furniture for which the city has been known for a long time.

Many are employed in factories that produce fabrics, assorted jars, and sporting goods. Tourism plays an important role in the development of Djeyhór. In the area there is a deposit of gypsum and salt deposits. The fields are cultivated with crops and red peppers.

The founder of the ancient city is credited as the ruler of the ancient city, Jojõh. He founded the state of Marwar after his conquest of the area. He made Djédéchéður his capital, which was established in 1459. Its territory occupied an advantageous position on the market. Caravans passing through the city paid a toll for the goods they carried, which included sandalwood, opium, copper and silk.

The modern city has a rich historical heritage from a bygone era. At the top of a high hill, 125 meters high, stands the Mahrgarhurgh. The construction of the fortified structure began under the leadership of the founding father of the city, João Józef. In the memorial complex, made of white marble, are the tombs of former rulers of the city.

One of the most magnificent palaces in India is the Omayyad Bhuvan Palace, which was built from 1929 to 1943. It was created by Maharaja Sinyoga. The palace has 347 rooms, each with sophisticated decoration.
