This is a shot- I took from the roofs of the Mehrangarh Fort in Jodhpur, Rajasthan.
As you can see, the city is spread below, a real Bird's Eye View...
The city is known as the "Sun City" for the bright, sunny weather it enjoys all year. It is also referred to as the "Blue City" due to the vivid blue-painted houses around the Mehrangarh Fort. The old city circles the fort and is bounded by a wall with several gates. However, the city has expanded greatly outside the wall over the past several decades. Jodhpur lies near the geographic centre of Rajasthan state, which makes it a convenient base for travel in a region much frequented by tourists.

This is a briliant scene, and I can see why it can be called the blue city, as the blue walled houses jump out from the frame really nicely. I like that you have done this shot without including any sky, so that the attention is drawn fully to the vast urban area.
This would make a brilliant jigsaw puzzle!
All the best
