Some say that the on the orders of the founder of Jodhpur, Rao Jodha, the city was painted blue. Others say that the blue houses belong to the brahmins where other non brahmins too got involved in the act. There is yet another theory that says blue tint repels insects. Here stands the mighty and muscular Mehrangarh- a formidable and impressive hilltop fort. A series of gates lead to the Fort ""Jayapol"" built by Maharaja Man Singh in 1806 and the ""Fatehpol"" or 'Victory Gate', erected by Maharaja Ajit Singh to celebrate his victory over the Mughals.
