On the edge of the Thar Desert, set against the sombre and arid landscape of Rajasthan is located the Welcomhotel Jodhpur. As a tribute to the city of Jodhpur, laden with history, culture & monuments that enliven the royal era of the princely state; Welcomhotel Jodhpur endeavors to bring about an element of grandeur through food, music, colour and an ethnic mélange of unique experiences.
Because of the vivid blue-painted houses, Jodhpur is famously known as the blue city. It is believed that Brahmins – members of the priestly class – first took to coloring their houses blue to signify their domicile and to set them apart from the rest of the population. It is likely that the ubiquitous blueness of Jodhpur is an exuberant display of human resilience against the stark Thar Desert which surrounds the town. Against the bleak backdrop of parched brown earth, the blue city exerts itself magnificently.
