Innate to Jodhpuri culture, the humble people are possibly the most hospitable people in India. English is reasonably widely spoken, but the Marwari accent needs getting used to. The lifestyle of the Jodhpuris is entrancing. People wear neat and ornate multi-coloured costumes. Women wear wide gathered skirts and a hip length jacket, with three quarter length sleeves, front and back. They proudly showcase jewellery on their feet, head, forehead, ears, nose, neck, arms, wrist, fingers, waist, etc. Rajasthani men wear unique colorful turbans. The main languages spoken here are Hindi, Marwari and guttural Rajasthani. Every Maharaja would build himself a palace, if only to house his harem. These graceful palaces and temples strewn throughout the city bring alive the historic grandeur of this city. Jodhpur’s exquisite handicrafts, folk dances, folk music and the brightly attired affable people comprise its romantic aura. The famous Marwar festival brings out the festive spirits of the Jodhpuris.
