Hello Friends,

I have just completed my first trip to Rajastahan with my better half and it was very fantabulous.

13th March - We both left our office at 6:00PM and meet at Shoprix Mall(Sec 61) in Noida around 6:30 PM and then we took auto from there up to Noida City Center Metro Station. We took a metro to Rajiv Chowk and then changed the metro to Chandni Chowk. We reached Old Delhi Railway Station(DLI) around 8:30PM and our train(Mandor Express) will depart from Platform No 3 at 9:15PM. Train started at time and reach Jodhpur Railway Station on time around 8:00AM.

14th March - Took auto from Railway station for Hotel Raman Palace,its near by Railway Station around 1 km. We settled in our room and freshened up in 1 hour and ready for our city sightseeing. We talked with hotel owner for a taxi(Indica Car) for day trip. He charged 1000 rupees for covering four destination in Jodhpur city. We left out the hotel at 10:00 am and asked driver to stop for a breakfast at good place in jodhpur, he told what you want to eat ,me and my wife would like to eat famous food of Jodhpur then he said he will stop at Janta Sweets,it is popular shop in Jodhpur Main market, we ate mirchi vada,Onion Kachori,idli rawa and Lassi and Lassi is the showstopper among all.
We left the shop and then we first visit Umaid Palace, Mehrangarh fort, Jaswant Thada and then Mandore Garden. Umaid Palace and Mehrangarh Fort are the must visit place among four in jodhpur.

We reached our hotel at 4:00 PM and then we took some rest and took dinner in the hotel itself. Food was Ok. We need to board the train for Jaisalmer at 11:45PM. We booked a cab from OLA and they charged 50 rupees for dropping to railway station.

15th March - We arrived at Jaisalmer Statation early morning (6:15AM) then we took the auto and ask the driver to go at Hotel Bansuri Deluxe at Hanuman Chowraha. We booked Super Deluxe room in this hotel at 700rs per night. It was nice and spacious room,clean bathroom and 1 km away from Jaisalmer fort. We booked our desert camp Hotel Owner, he charged 2500 ruppes for camp which includes Camel Safari, dinner and i night stay in Oasis Camp Sam. We booked Jeep Safari as well in 1200 ruppes and vechile (Tata Indigo) for transfer from hotel to Sam Sand dunes in 1000 rupees, so total we paid 4400 rupees.
Now we were feeling hungry so we went to Main Market and we asked from local for best good food and he recommened Chandan Shri in the front of Jaisalmer fort, we went to restaurant and had a breakfast. It was good food at Chandan Shri, specially Pineapple Rabdi, it was so delicious.
We booked a guide for Jaisalmer fort in 100 rupees and see whole fort with him then we visited Patwo ki Haweli, Salam Singh ki Haweli (Salam Singh was the prime minister of Jaisalmer in 1156 AD. Went to hotel and took some rest.
n the evening we visted Gadisar Lake and then went to Main Market for dinner at Chandan shri.

16th March - We left with one place i.e. Mandir Place, which we cover in the morning and then have a lunch at Chandan Shri and come back to Hotel at around 2:00 PM. We will leave for desert Camp at 3:30 PM from hotel and reach Sam Sand Dunes in 30 minutes, road was very good. We started Camel Safari at 5:00 PM and saw beautiful sun set from Thar Desert, it was very nice experience to see sun set from desert. We will reach in the camp(Oasis Camp Sam) at 7:00PM, we freshenedup and be ready for rajasthani cuture programe then we have a rajasthani dinner which we didn't like and had a good sleep in swiss tent.

17th March - We wake up early in the morning at 6:00 AM for Jeep Safari, it was really great experience. Driver was very experienced and drove jeep very well in the desert and it was very adventerous as well. We saw sun rise from Desert and it was very nice to see.

Quoting IBNlive

'The Dark Knight Rises' puts Jodhpur's Mehrangarh Fort on the international map

Maverick filmmaker Christopher Nolan says The Dark Knight Rises is the biggest story he has ever told. And filling an arid expanse of his vast canvas is India's spectacularly desolate Mehrangarh Fort in Rajasthan's Jodhpur. A year ago, Nolan shot a prison scene here that features among the opening scenes of the finale to his epic Batman trilogy.

Actor Christian Bale, Josh Pence and Nolan were in Jodhpur during the summer of 2011 shooting inside the Mehrangarh Fort for a couple of days. Pence plays young Ra's al Ghul which in Arabic means 'Demon's Head'. He is one of Batman's deadliest enemies.

The imposing fort is situated 400 feet above Jodhpur and overlooks the city with palaces and courtyards dotting the inside of the fort. This was the first leg of the shooting. Hollywood has increasingly sought India's widely varying landscape as setting for its epic adventures. It chose India as the setting for The Avengers.

In an interview Nolan said the locals at Mehrangarh thought the team "was nuts shooting in 120-degree (Fahrenheit) heat."
