FESTIVALS

The pale blue/indigo/azure-painted narrow and tall houses of the jumbled and entrancing medieval Old City, are especially impressive when viewed from the ramparts of Mehrangarh Fort. The city, at the base of a sandstone ridge, was the capital of the Marwar kingdom for five centuries, and is encircled by a 9-km wall, which keeps out the desert sands - Jodhpur was founded in 1459 by Rao Jodha, a Rajput chief belonging to the Rathore clan.
