Every city seems to have a color in Rajasthan: Jaipur is the Pink City (it's walls were painted that color, associated with hospitality, to welcome the Prince of Wales who would become King Edward VII), Jaisalmer is the Golden City (named after the color of the rock from which the fort there was built), and Jodhpur is the Blue City, since many of the homes in the old city are painted that color, which is the traditional color of a Brahmin home (other castes now also paint their homes blue). Here, as seen from the battlements of Jodhpur's fort, a hawk soars above the Blue City.
