When it’s morning in the Blue City!

Standard

If you are really looking forward to see vibrant colors in the stark desert of Rajasthan, backpack your stuff and head down to explore the blue city of Jodhpur. The legends say that Brahmins first started painting their houses blue to show their high position among the society. Sooner, it was followed by everyone else, which created this incredible contrast to this dusty desert town.

Jodhpur is a prominent city on a tourist map. It is common to see the attractions of Jodhpur. But we thought to do it bit differently. When the first ray of Sun falls on the blue city, we took our camera and went on to discover the streets of Jodhpur to capture the life of its people and their everyday rituals.

  1. Superb post! The beautiful description of the Blue city via your equally amazing clicks tempts me to plan a trip here soon with my friends. The life of Jodhpur seems so calm and colorful contrasting to the hustle-bustle life of a metro city.
