Things to do - general

The panorama of this vibrant blue hued city brings only one blissful thought to mind and that is what a sight to behold and an amazingly scenic voyage to be on.

What an apt getaway for any kind of weekend where one can visit the Old city with its little blue painted houses or its many temples, palaces, lakes or forts that have stood the ravages of time and appear even more lovely now making tourists gasp in awe at the extra ordinariness of this location.
