It is found on the eastern edge of the Thar Desert and cowers below the mighty Mehrangarh Fort, the most spectacular citadel in Rajasthan. Where Jaipur is known as the Pink city, Jodhpur is known as the Blue city after the colour of its old town houses.
The bazaars of the old city, with different areas assigned to different trades, radiate out from the 1910 Sardar Market with its tall clock tower marking the centre of town. Get lost in the blue maze of the old city where youâll stumble across Muslim tie-dyers, puppet-makers and traditional spice markets. Jodhpur’s famed cubic roofscape, best viewed at sunset, is a photographer’s dream.
