Walking in the great streets of Jodhpur, the famous blue city, you believe to be in an earlier time and age. Around every corner is a surprise, a cow or a bull, a stray dog or the most colourful women and men. I spend 4 days in this great town and could’ve stayed longer and wander around this town for days!!
View over Jodhpur.
Taken from the great Mehrangarh Fort high above the city! The fort is defenitily worth the visit and if you love those views over the city this place is a must. The ancient old fort has been maintained perfectly and for that matter a good example to see how the ancient times in the fort looked like.
I love this culture in Jodhpur, in Rajasthan or for that matter in India!! It dominates every corner and every scene you see!!
Cows eating the colourful offerings.
I wanted to share some of those great pictures I took of this wonderful place. They call it the blue city and soon you will see that too!
Just a couple of the hundreds of great old wooden doors in the small streets of Jodhpur
Aren’t they just the best!!
I do see them in shops or online when home in The Netherlands…. How would I love to decorate a wall in my own house with such on ancient door!!

You just have got to love this house…you see so much going on here 🙂 It doesn’t matter how long you look at it…you will see something new!!
Every floor has a scene of a book .. I could look at this for hours and fantasize all kinds of stories..
Take the stairs going up to Mehrangarh Fort and if you look back over the city you will see that getting better by every step you take! At some point I looked back and this sweety was looking back at me 🙂
One of the many great gates of the Fort
The great Fort, already standing on the mountain and still it is so high!! It is so impressive!
The view of the fort was just the best from my hotel! I can reccomend this hotel to everyone by the way. It is a great spot!! I filmed it…. in times I didn’t keep my camera horizontal.. But I do think you’ll get the pictures of this great hotel!
My channel on youtube is here. I do think the ones I make now are better 🙂
If you are looking for a hotel..
This is the Krishna Prakesh Heritage Haveli
The Haveli is situated just near the centre of the city, it is a 5 to 10 minutes walk to the Sardar market. I loved the food and the spot. It was clean and the staff was nice.
Across the street of this haveli is a travelagency where I saw this man! I love this of India!! This is the image I have of India when I am fantasizing about it, don’t you too?
At this travelagency I booked a nice daytrip into the surrounding area. We drove into the desert of Rajasthan and visited several settlements. Informative and a great day outside the busy city. If you need some souvenirs this trip is great too!
We visited a pottery, a place they fabrique those great colourful cloths and a small settlement they made all kinds of things out of wood
Back in the city you can enjoy the culture again, the food they offer at every streetcorner and the great bleu colour that dominates this great city!
I took a cookingclass at Spice Paradise. I learned to cook the famous Biryani Rice here. Rekha is a great teacher and full of information about the culture and background of the food and its ingredients.
