1. The Blue City of Jodhpur in Rajasthan, India

Colorful, vibrant, and unique, the Blue City of Jodhpur is India’s postcard destination for culture. The tapered winding alleys, traditionally dressed locals, soul-satisfying food and a spectacular fort towering over the blue abodes of the Old Town are only a few of many other enthralling cultural experiences here. Founded by the Rajput chieftain of the Rathores named Rao Jodha in the year 1459 AD, the historic city of Jodhpur is also known as the Sun City due to the bright sunlight throughout the year.

If you don’t already know this then the Blue City of India is actually blue. Traditionally, the homes of the Brahmins (upper caste priests) were painted blue for identification. Gradually, other castes also began using the blue color as the hue was believed to repel insects. The Mehrangarh Fort and Jaswant Thada (a cenotaph) the two most popular tourist attractions and the overwhelming old world charm of the city make Jodhpur one of the most popular and amazing destinations for culture in the world.
