The ongoing ‘Peacock in the Desert: The Royal Arts of Jodhpur, India’ exhibition in America chronicles treasures spanning nearly four centuries from the Marwar-Jodhpur kingdom of Rajasthan. MARWAR brings you a photo essay that offers glimpses of the objects of Indian courtly life on display, most of which have never left India, until now.
Jodhpur, in Rajasthan, has earned the sobriquet ‘Blue City’ from Brahmapuri, a small and ancient settlement of Brahmins within the city. Brahmapuri is distinguished by its electric blue and azure structures, which are distinctly visible from the majestic Mehrangarh Fort. Sugato Mukherjee wanders through labyrinths to capture stunning glimpses of this ‘azure city’. MARWAR presents a selection of the photographer’s works.
