Jodhpur is the second largest city in the Indian state of Rajasthan. It was formerly the seat of a princely state of the same name, also known as Marwar. Jodhpur is a popular tourist destination, featuring many beautiful palaces, forts and temples, apart from a stark, scenic desert landscape. The city is known as the Sun City for the bright, sunny weather it enjoys all year. It is also referred as the Blue City, due to the indigo tinge of the whitewashed houses around the Mehrangarh Fort. The blue houses were originally for Brahmins but non-Brahmins soon joined in, as the colour was said to deflect the heat and keep mosquitoes away. Jodhpur lies near the geographic center of Rajasthan state, which makes it a convenient base for travel in a region much frequented by tourists. The old city of Jodhpur is surrounded by a thick stone wall. The wall has six huge gates called Nagauri gate, Merati gate, Sojati gate, Jalori gate, Siwanchi gate and Chand pol.

    First of all I want to say thanks to god for giving me a chance to meet with Rahul sir. He is a man of principles, not only he improved my English and confidence level but also he changed my thought process towards life. I got admission in his Institute as general but it changed my life style. I found myself a good mom after getting admission of my daughter in sps school. It's only because of you sir, you made me proud .I think English spoken course is so useful for a house wife also. Every woman should get admission and make herself proud. I am grateful to you sir thank you so much.
