"The Blue City" Jodhpur Things to Do Tip by Willettsworld

Jodhpur Things to Do: 245 reviews and 675 photos

Jodhpur is known 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. The city is also known as the Sun City for the bright, sunny weather it enjoys all year.
