While Rajasthan has some beautiful architecture, this has to be the doorway of my dreams ❤️. Unofficially regarded by some as Jaipur’s ninth gate, Patrika Gate gives you a sneak peek into the vibrant culture of Rajasthan. Paying homage to the city, each pillar features intricate hand paintings of famous temples, forts and palaces, portraits of Jaipur’s Rajput rulers as well as well known city symbols including blue pottery, tribal jewellery and even Amer Fort, Hawa Mahal, City Palace, Jal Mahal to paint a holistic image of the great city of Jaipur. The locals tell me that it’s yet incomplete and will feature a rooftop restaurant, ornate staircase and accompanying lift for city dwellers who wish to dine in style. 
If you find that your local tour guide or rickshaw driver doesn’t quite know where it is, just ask them to take you to the entrance of Jawahar Circle’s Garden - you’ll find pretty Patrika Gate waiting to greet you.

Seated at the edge of the Thar Desert, the Blue City of Jodhpur is the second largest city in The Indian state of Rajasthan.

A sea of indigo and azure houses that stretch for more than 10 km  define the boundaries of the historic walled old city. 
According to legend, the blue pigment coating on a house were used to indicate that a Brahmin—the priests of the Indian caste system—dwelled there, however, with time and tourism the colour became a badge of identity for non-Brahmins too. This view shows the original blue Brahmin houses. Oh, and another fun fact - it’s also said to have insect-repelling abilities too!
