Jodhpur

Jodhpur is called the blue city, and it is easy to understand why. Blue buildigs are everywhere, I was told that this is because painting your house blue is considered lucky and a sign of prosperity. The main part of down town is dominated by a clock tower and surrounding the tower is a market. You can buy everything from spices to clothes here. Jodhpur is known for its spices and this shows in the market. Each spice vendor tries to outdo the next by displaying their impressive selection of spices. It is everything you would expect from a market from the middle ages only interrupted by the sound of motor cycles and rickshaws.
