The colour blue, associated with blue-bodied Lord Krishna, is often used to represent Hinduism.

Nymphaea caerulea, the blue lotus, is a type of waterlily with a particularly intense purple-tinged blue. Bundi is often known as the blue city as most of the buildings are painted in the blue of Krishna and the blue lotus.
Turquoise, another form of blue, is often used to accent this intense blue.

The people themselves seem to prefer wearing reds and yellows.

Such marvelous blues. I really like the buildings with the blue and sea greens. Thanks for playing!
The combination of this intense blue and various blue-greens was quite pleasing to me too. Thank you!
I love these 🙂
I loved walking through the streets surrounded by such blue buildings…
Just beautiful blue buildings, lovely!
