Saffron Kulfi at Umaid Bhawan Palace – Jodhpur

Standard

Umaid Bhawan Palace, just outside Jodhpur, is the current home of the royal family and very impressive.

It offers some very glamorous, but expensive, accommodation and dining…. but even if that’s not what you want, it’s well worth a visit.

While you aren’t able to go inside the residence or the hotel part of the property, for just $1, you can visit the lovely grounds and get a good feel of the art deco palace from the very good museum.

Don’t miss the delicious kesar (saffron) kulfi (ice-cream) near the entrance. It’s a lovely treat in the shade of the gardens.

There’s also a vintage car collection near the entrance, that adds to the heritage ambiance.

A good stop to combine with a visit to local villages and the Jaswant Thada Temple.
