Jodhpur, the blue city

Jodhpur is the second largest city in the state of Rajasthan. It is located in the Thar desert. Popular tourist destination for its many palaces, forts and temples. It is kn

houses are painted under the fort of Mehrangarh. Formerly only the Brahmins painted their houses blue, but the custom was extended thanks also to the popular belief of the locals that they scared away the insects from their homes.

Jodhpur, it’s the blue city. I must admit that of my entire trip, it is the place that I recommend the least. Maybe because of my experience or because of the expectations I had with the blue city. But ultimately Jodhpur did not seduce me. I found a messy, dirty, dusty city. In fact, all cities in India, but each of them knew how to conquer me, Jodhpur I must say no.

We visited the Clock Tower, which you can find walking around the city. And hire a Tuk Tuk to take us to the Fortress of Mehrangarth, because I had read that having a beer from there at sunset is priceless.

Well, first of all the nice driver of the Tuk Tuk not to go around and climb up, left us at the foot of the mountain of the fortress, where a road with a steep slope began. When we reached the top they were closing and you could not enter the fort, so goodbye to the beer.

THE FORTRESS OF MEHRANGARH

It is one of the most majestic forts in India. The walls of the fort have a height of 36 m by 21 m wide. In addition, its walls not only retain a part of the original canyons excellently preserved, but also an impressive view over the city.
