Jodhpur or “Blue City” is one of the most popular tourist cities in India. It is located in the very center of the Thar Desert, which has greatly affected its life, culture and rhythm of life. Temperatures below 50 degrees Celsius are not uncommon here, and everyone who wants to visit the beauty of the city should take this fact into account.

  The city is in the middle of the Thar Desert. Tourists come here to see countless fortr , temples and palaces. There are many sunny days throughout the year, so Jodhpur is called the “City of the Sun”. Since many houses are painted blue, its other name is “Blue City”. On the southeastern border of the settlement, the often dry Dzhojari River flows.
