Blue City Walking Tour

Immerse yourself in the captivating charm of Jodhpur on this walking tour of the Blue City. Discover why the historic centre is known for its colour as you explore its beautiful streets and monuments.

Blue City Walking Tour Itinerary

Begin your walking tour of the Blue City from your meeting point in the historic Navchokiya district. One of Jodhpur's most picturesque neighbourhoods, this part of the old town is home to beautiful temples, bustling bazaars and of course, the havelis - typical indigo blue houses for which the city has been nicknamed.

As you stroll through the labyrinthine streets, admire the distinct colour of these houses, originally painted blue to show that brahmins, or Hindu priests, lived there, as was custom. However, over time, the practice extended to the houses of many other residents of the city too, as the vivid blue paint was said to have insect-repelling and heat-insulating properties.

Continue your route around Jodhpur, reaching the Ranisar Lake, an artificial reservoir constructed more than 500 years ago to store water. Your guided walking tour of the Blue City will finish in the area surrounding the incredible Mehrangarh Fort. Located on a rocky hilltop almost 400 feet (120 m) above the city centre, it is one of India's most magnificent fortresses, and its location affords unique panoramic views over the blue houses below.
