    Sad to see it’s plight
    Amazing foresight and excellent planning by the Founders of the city in building this centre of old town. Unfortunately there’s scant regard for hygiene, cleanliness. Most of the public space is occupied by ravenous mushrooming commercial establishments, street vendors, and grossly crass civic insensitivities coupled with sheer govt apathy. Truly sad to experience this vibe, though a nice starting point to stroll around in busy old town market.

    If you’re in Jodhpur, you might as well just take a Quick Look.
    If you like chaos and noise, this is the place you have to come to. Feels like a crowded bazaar area anywhere in India. The clock tower itself is a good piece of architecture. Nothing too spectacular. You can go up to get a view from the first terrace, which is not much. And can also see the internal workings of the clock that still runs precisely. If you’re in Jodhpur, it’s worth driving through, or just taking a short walk around the tower. Hopefully there will be a few vendors around who sell garments which does add colour to the area. 10 minutes is more than enough.

    Iconic Clock Tower
    Situated in the middle of busy and crowded market palace, parking may be an issue too. Visited the Ghanta Ghar / Clock Tower couple of times while visiting the market. The clock tower has a nice architecture. One can walk around to get a feel of old Jodhpur city life / crowd.

    Very beautiful clock tower
    Coming from a town famous for its clock I always have a special affinity for clocks. This one is certainly one of the most beautiful and elaborate ones I have seen. A very impressive piece of architecture it is the hub of the local market and I was very impressed by this captivating clock tower.

    Ghanta Ghar, Jodhpur
    Jodhpur's Clock Tower, also known as Ghanta Ghar, is a 3-story landmark with a giant, functional English clock. Built in the 19th century by Maharaja Sardar Singh. Intricate details grace the tower, offering a glimpse into Rajasthan's royal past. It blends Gothic and Indian architectural styles, resembling a minaret more than a square clock tower. The surrounding market bursts with colourful stalls overflowing with textiles and handicrafts, creating a feast for the senses. From the clock's chimes to the friendly atmosphere, Ghanta Ghar offers a captivating experience for every visitor.

Ghanta Ghar or clock tower of Rajasthan is situated in the centre of Sadar Bazar, which is a busy shopping site for traditional clothes, jewellery and also there are plenty of mouth watering street food here, including Shahi samosa and Arora chaat bhandar. In a way this is the centre of Jodhpur, from where you can reach other popular locations. The stepwell is also walking distance from Ghanta Ghar. You can also see Mehrangarh Fort from a distance. It is a super busy location, the best way to explore it is by walking. At night the street along with the clock tower is lit, making it more beautiful!

Just another clock tower with dirty surroundings. Not worth visiting. Also, avoid eating in shady tea/samosa shops if you care for your health, don't copy those fancy yotube reviews. View of mehrangarh fort from here is fine. Try to sit in some rooftop restaurant for better view of fort. Beware of all the shops in this area esp. 15 in 1 shop, all will charge 3-4 times noticing you are a tourist. Fabrics bought here won't survive machine wash.

You can explore the local market around it. Can get some good local jodhpuri dresses and bedsheets. Do remember to bargain. They ask you for a lot and tell you that it's a fixed price. However, they inflate the prices knowing that you will negotiate. So, do negotiate the prices.

Centre of activities.Local focal point .Gift from British.Under renovations for some time now. Worth a quick glance.

All over Rajasthan the citizens have to make commitment to clean up the city from garbage. It seems to be a cultural issue of cleanliness. Beautiful landmarks are tainted with graffiti and waste.
Cow and dog dung everywhere.
Cows are protected and sanctified and revered but alas totally neglected. Malnourished sickly cows and dogs roam all over tourist sites.

The place is abuzz with activity through the day. In these corona times unfortunately nobody is wearing masks in Jodhpur city.
Got some chai masala and spices - hing.
Went to the Mishrilal hotel and had tasty kachoris and jalebi. So many textile shops all around selling bandhini material. Definitely worth a visit!

Though we had been told by one tourist we met in Udaipur to skip this busy shopping bizarre, it just goes to show that everyone's taste is different - for this was one of our favorite places in all of India. It is a true local experience, with local shoppers everywhere buying fresh vegetables, shopping for saris, spices, etc. It is the best of India's chaotic market places, with all the amazing colors, flavors and swirling masses that make up this mystical land. We came the very first evening we were there, but the next day, went back for more serious spice shopping and found it even more enchanting the second time around.

Open market in Jodhpur main bazaaar. The clock tower is an iconic monument that stands in the center of the city. The views of mehranghar fort from this place are great. Visit here in the evening to get some local food and shopping.
