The Blue City, Jodhpur is the second-largest city in Rajasthan. The Thar Desert-located in the city is one of the oldest. The story behind the name of Jodhpur dates back to ancient times when the blue colour (depicting Lord Shiva) was used to highlight houses of some specific castes. Later, everyone started painting their house blue as a sign of equality.
