Initially i started this blog as a photoblog depicting pictures from all my travels. But lately i've realized that i need to share some of my travel experiences too. So here it goes.. celebrating Life and its wonderful experiences.

The Blue City

30th April 2014, New Delhi

A picturesque view of the Jodhpur city looks so mesmerizing. A lot of people refer the city of Jodhpur as the "Blue City" and you can guess why by just looking at the above picture. Its because of all the beautiful houses painted in blue across the city and especially around the Mehranghar Fort (can be seen at the backdrop).

What i got to know is that all the Brahmins in the city paint their houses in blue. One among the various nt reason for it is to distinguish their houses(themselves) from rest of the population.
And over the decades more and more Brahmins family settling around the fort has turned it into blue.
