Established by Rao Jodha in 1458 Mehrangarh Fort dominates the city. The largest fort in all Rajasthan. Jodhpur is also known as the Blue City, most houses in the old city are shades of blue.

After seeing forts in Delhi, Agra, and Jaipur this was such a pleasant surprise. Well ordered, clean and so worth seeing. It is well maintained, and upkeep is ongoing. We toured late in the afternoon so not so crowded. Well worth the trip.
