Jodhpur Travel, Rajasthan, India
Why Jodhpur travel?
So. . . there’s the ‘White City’ of Udaipur, the ‘Pink City’ of Jaipur and now here’s the ‘Blue City’ of Jodhpur, conveniently located on the edge of the Thar Desert, halfway between Jaipur and the ‘Golden City’ of Jaisalmer.
This is one of the least interesting of Rajasthan’s towns, with the fort and its museums being the focal point for tourists or the Umaid Bhawan Palace hotel experience for glitterati travellers.
The blue view from the Mehrangarh Fort.
Mehrangarh is the largest fort in India and offers an excellent museum of military trivia and Maharaja’s toys as well as that superb view. Many Brahmin live on the north side of the city and like to paint their house in shades of blue, we don’t know why.
