Jodhpur is known as the ‘Sun City’ because of the bright and sunny weather all year round and also the ‘Blue City’ because of the large cluster of houses painted in blue around the fort.

First, Brahmin families painted their homes blue, a royal color, to distinguish themselves from the commoners but soon, everyone else followed suit and they were mostly concentrated near fort.
