With the sabriquet, “the Blue City” , Jodhpur would have sung these lines if it was human being.

The busy streets and old Bazaar though are not associated with only one colour but most of the houses and old buildings still carry this colour, providing a photogenic backdrop to the town.

There have been many stories on the reason of coating the old town to this blue, still none has any validation. For more information, you might visit HERE.

How to reach there:

Take a 5 minutes walk through the Bazaar from the Clock Tower area towards inside, and you will be able to find the patches of blue coated houses and buildings breathing right in front of you.

Tips:

Alwasys ask before taking photos of private houses and local people. Although my personal experience says, all the localites are very Photo-friendly.

Among all these blue-coated buildings, we also found many dilapidated, abandoned structures that might have carried many stories of the past. If those could be preserved, the city would have been more exuberant as its lively blue colour.

Anyways, as we sauntered through the mediaeval alleys of the old city at the foot of the Mehrangarh fort, we could feel the true essence of the colourful India. A photographer’s Paradise and no less for a Traveller, it is a must visit place or some real experiences.
