In 1876, Jaipur dressed itself pink to welcom Prince Albert and Queen Elizabeth II, and thus the name Pink City stuck to it. Jodhpur - An urban sea of indigo washed buildings, Jodhpur in the Indian state of Rajasthan certainly earns its name as. The Blue City is a $15 billion megacity project started by the Oman. The Blue City project will take up roughly 34 square kilometers along the coastal region at Al Sawaadi, only 45 minutes from Muscat. When completed, the city will include 16 hotels, two hospitals, a large university.. Also, there will be an aquarium, a convention center and a sports village which will be hosting a lot of European and international football teams for the pre-season.
