蓝色之城   blue city:

焦特布尔   Jodhpur 


There is a group of Smurfs in the other side of mountain and sea, they are lively and witty, they are mischievous and clever...... If there is Indian version of Smurfs in India, then they should be residing in Jodhpur. Overlooking from the summit of Meherangarh Fort, dots of blue houses shows the magnificence of the city. One origin of the blue city  goes like this, blue is the color of Brahmin caste, so they paint their house in blue color so as to show their identity. This tradition was later followed by other non-Brahman people, which gradually rendered the city into blue.
