jodhpur | the blue city
Updated: Aug 18, 2020
Everything you see online about Jodhpur being the Blue City makes you believe that the whole city will be painted in shades of blue. When I first arrived in Jodhpur I was a little disappointed. Where were all the blue houses that everyone takes pictures of? I couldn't fathom it.
After a lot of exploring and some online research, I finally found the Blue City, and it's everything like you'd imagine! There are so many various shades of blue and purple that the whole city is just awash with colour. If you don't know where the old city is, you'd likely miss the Blue City!
Here's a rough map of where you'll need to head to see the old blue buildings:
Find your way to the bottom of the fort and follow your way left until you're at the other side - this is where most of the blue buildings are!
