🇮🇳India, Rajasthan - The Blue City … taken from the 15th-century Mehrangarh Fort, a former palace that’s now a museum - 📷By @silvernomads_ Situated on the edge of the Thar Desert, Jodhpur is also called the “Sun City,” nam ed for the overwhelming amount of bright and sunny days it experiences. It is home to famed forts, palaces, mausoleums, gardens, lakes, and towers, making it a hotspot for tourist activity. Since its founding more than 500 years ago, the city has earned renown for its textile industry, exquisite furniture shops, delectable cuisine, and bustling bazaars, among many other attractions.
But above all, visitors aren’t likely to forget the eye-catching color coating the houses, creating a luscious blue sea in the arid Indian landscape. A view from the top of the looming Mehrangarh Fort, one of India’s largest forts from the 15th century, lets visitors overlook the bountiful, striking blue for which the city is known.
"It was a town of red brick, or of brick that would have been red if the smoke and ashes had allowed it; but as matters stood, it was a town of unnatural red and black like the painted face of a savage. It was a town of machinery and tall chimneys, out of which interminable serpents of smoke trailed themselves for ever and ever, and never got uncoiled. It had a black canal in it, and a river that ran purple with ill-smelling dye, and vast piles of building full of windows where there was a rattling and a trembling all day long, and where the piston of the steam-engine worked .." Hard Times by Charles Dickens. I recommend this book to all delhites you'll feel it's like reality of your present environment. This picture dates back to a week ago within the circle of an residential area. It's a request slow down or you know what resides for us in the future.
