One of the most interesting cities to visit in India, is Jodhpur – India’s blue city – and I am going to share 20 photos to inspire you and give you reasons to visit Jodhpur. I have been here twice, once as a backpacker than again 5 years later (now) as a more mid-range travelers so I’ve seen a lot of different vibes in Jodhpur and I’m so happy to share about them.
While this blog post is just some photos to get you pumped up to come here, I do have a lot of information about Jodhpur and you can check out my recent blog post, a full guide to Jodhpur which includes my room there – a 500-year-old adorable suite with a fort view for just $53 per night!
For these photos, I’ll put a little caption on some but definitely read up on that guide to know the inside scoop on this city. I’ll at least tell you now why the city is blue, though! No one knows, ha ha. Some say it’s to prevent mosquitos, some say it keeps it cooler, and others say that it was a caste thing done by the Brahmins.

even the ground is colorful
The first time I visited Jodhpur, I was a very broke backpacker so I was so glad to come back all this time later with some money to spend. Rather than a $10 room (the cheapest there), I splurged for a beautiful suite which was still only $53. It’s small differences you can make on everything from eating to lodging that can change your trip drastically. I hope you have the best time in Jodhpur and love India’s blue city!
