Falling for charming Jodhpur

After Jaisalmer the road trip through deserted landscapes continued until we reached Jodhpur, known as “the blue city”. We had from the start chosen two nights in this city but our travel agency changed that to one night with the motivation that we would not like more than that due to pollution, dirt etc. Well….this ended up being one of my absolute favourite experiences and I really wish we would have had more time there.

Despite lack of time we tried to make most of it. We visited the star of Jodhpur, the fort Meherangarh, the first afternoon. Then did a short early evening walk close to the hotel, to watch some street life. The next morning we tried to utilize the time after breakfast by walking around watching the city come alive. But we had to leave just when the market woke up 😦 Since I managed to capture more beautiful Indian streetlife in less than 24 hours than during the rest of our trip I have decided to make three posts about this place which was the most friendly and genuine experience we had in Rajasthan, despite the dirt and traffic.

But let´s start with fort Meherangarh. Such a beauty, both inside as from outside. My favourite part was the magnificent view over all the blue houses from above. Just as I was gazing out over the blue sea of houses the prayers from all the surrounding mosques started to sound in the distance. Magic moment.

  1. Vilken härlig resa du är ute på! Verkligen kul att läsa om. Finns det nån historia bakom de blå taken och kommer jodphurs från Jodphur?

      Denna resan är tyvärr avklarad, jag är en sån som hellre bloggar i efterhand 🙂 Jag vet tyvärr inget om namnet Jodhpur. Googlade lite men blev inte klokare för det.

      • Hej Jenny! Håller med dig, när man reser har man ju inte tid att sitta för mkt vid datorn! Mitt problem är bara att det sällan blir av efteråt. Har tänkt göra en resebok för varje resa men … det börjar hopa sig med många resor nu i den “att-göra-högen” 😉
        Oavsett om skorna kommer därifrån eller ej var det väldigt kul att se bilderna och läsa om din resa.

        Kramis!
