Jodhpur’s Sadar Market – Rajasthan, India

DSC01084

Sitting at the base of the hill, under the famous Mehrangarh Fort, you’ll find Jodhpur’s bustling main bazaar, Sadar Market.

Spice-traders, sari-sellers, and produce-pushers radiate out in concentric circles around a central clocktower.

I enjoyed getting lost in the narrow aisles, snapping pictures, and chatting with the merchants.

Spices in India are cheap, and I picked up a few different packets to send home as gifts.

Like many places in India, stray cattle can be found roaming the streets and alleyways.

Beside the fort and this market, there really isn’t much else to see in Jodhpur. Still, I loved it here. After the madness of places like Delhi and Jaipur, it was nice to relax in this scenic and historic city.
