Aside from being an oasis from the hustle and bustle, Raas boasts one of the best views of Mehrangarh Fort. I felt like I could reach out and touch it! Built around 1460 by Rao Jodha, the fort towers high over Jodhpur.
Once upon a time, Raas was a haveli… likely built in 1850 and now infused with new purpose as a hotel.
We spent a most delightful afternoon.. looking over lush greenery with the tinkle of water falling as we dinned al fresco at the Baradari restaurant.
Then returning early evening, to settle ourselves at Darikhana for the sunset view…
Hint of dusk…
And finally… full glory!
Was a rather enjoyable way to close our first evening in Jodhpur.
- Heat, dust and… shopping! Jodhpur style
- Jodhpur stepwell… stumbling into history
