My son, who will be 16 then and I are planning a trip to India for Holi 2016. I am trying to pick what city to make our base in. We do want to visit Mathura for Holi. I have been to Delhi, Agra, and Jaipur. I preferred Jaipur. But we want to stay some where new this trip, so am thinking on Jodhpur.

Mainly we want to see Hindu temples, visit traditional (not too touristy) shops and restaurants.

Can someone who has been there tell me about what temples there are best to visit.

Any other thoughts welcome, as I have till this coming March, to finalize the plans as we will be booking flights then for the following March.

Blessings,
Ginger

Jodhpur is one of my favourite cities in Rajasthan but I don't recall important temples.
Nearby Osian has a nice Jain temple and the remainders of some others.

In Jodhpur the fort and the nearby cenotaphs, the market around the clock-tower and the winding streets between these areas are the main attractions.

One of our best recollections about this region is this trip to the Thar desert.

yeah the hotels I am researching all seem to have views of the fort. But forts and modern things like the jain temple is not really what we are looking for. My Son going with me, his middle name is Vishnu, so we are clearly really into the ancient Hindu temples and such.

We may not even get to the taj, I saw it, wasn't impressed lol. He hasn't but is more interested in temples and animals and such.

Right now, I am leaning towards staying in Jodhpur, with side trips out to Mathura, Delhi and/or Jaipur.

Thanks for any info,
Blessings,
Ginger
