Photographer's Note

Jodhpur is the blue city of Rajasthan, standing on the edge of the Thar desert. There are thousands of blue houses in Jodhpur, many connected to each other. This bustling desert city is the second largest city in Rajasthan after Jaipur and has landscape dominated by the massive Meherangarh Fort topping a sheer rocky ridge. The old city is fenced by 10 km long wall with eight Gates leading out of it. The new city is outside the walled city. Rao Jodha, a chief of the Rathore clan, founded the city in 1459 and it is named after him.

Here is the old city with the Fort's wall in the background.

Have re-posted a bigger image as per few requests.
