Jodhpur Railway Station Gets A Makeover To Look More Palatial And Artistic

Jodhpur Railway Station has been around for a long time; since 1885 to be precise. On 9 March, 1885, the first train ran from Jodhpur to Luni. Later on, in 1900, as Jodhpur and Hyderabad railways were combined, some part of this railway system ended up in present-day west Pakistan.

As Jodhpur is a major tourist destination, this effort will probably be appreciated by tourists. However, it is also a matter of pride for the local people, not only to see administration trying to improve something but also to see their local art being promoted in such a manner.
