Jodhpur -The Blue City

*** I had less then 6 hrs and my sis had extracted the promise that I will take them out to show the Fort of jodhpur and some part of city. So our first stop was Mehrangadh - I find this fort very imposing. May be because of its entrance.

*** When you enter the gates - there is a Royal welcome. People are not camera shy and would pose very eagerly and oblige you.

*** I made my sister climb stairs and pose in this Jharokha. Later she gave me a hug as it brought memories of when our father use to take pics of mom ( our family album is full of images where my mom would be either standing next to huge doorways/arches or these carved windows)
Though I am still trying to figure why its called as Bengal arch ??
*** No guesses - Right !! That's why Jodhpur is called as Blue City !!!
