Remote Lands' commitment to superior service ensured our trip to India and Sri Lanka was a great one, even in the face of force majeure...we are already thinking of where to go next in Asia.

India - Jodhpur

There's no denying the romance of Jodhpur, with its brilliant blue buildings set against the imposing sandstone Mehrangarh Fort, and dapper men and chic women wearing the eponymous breeches that blouse at the waist and taper at the knee. The "Blue City," Rajasthan's second largest, was founded in 1459 by Rao Jodha. Its importance grew as a hub of overland trade and the upper merchant classes, called the Marwaris, still run some of India's biggest trading operations today. The indigo-colored buildings also speak to Jodhpur's wealth, as the blue indicated that a member of the Brahmin caste, the highest, lived there.
