In early March, I had a 2-week trip to India, right before the country lockdown due to the pandemic. That was so lucky me for the fact that I came back to Vietnam really on time. I was thinking of visiting Jodhpur, a so-called blue city in India for so long. As reaching there, this city did not fail to amaze me.
The blueness is not everywhere to be seen. Let’s take a stroll around the old town under the foothill of Mehrangarh Fort – a huge fort tourist can not miss in Jodhpur, and you can catch the sights of blue houses. The hue is varied, from Indigo, Cerulean, sky blue to Persian blue, or Cobalt hue. Don’t expect that the blue hue in Jodhpur is totally gorgeous like blue alleys in Chefchaouen. People paint their houses blue not for tourism purposes. Therefore, you can find them stained, filthy-ish, and the alleys are covered in cow wastes.
Try to meander along small alleys, take a leisure walk in the early morning when local people are still not awakened. It helps you have better views as your photos are not photobombed by anyone.
