Mehrangarh Fort, Jodhpur (Rajasthan)

Towering over the city of Jodhpur and the reason that Jodhpur flourished as it did throughout history, Mehrangarh Fort in Jodhpur is the impregnable fortress of the Rathore clan built by Rao Jodha around the 1460s.

Mehrangarh Fort History

One year after the accession of Rao Jodha – the 15th Rathore ruler – the Mehrangarh fort was built to establish a new capital of Marwar Kingdom. Before Jodhpur, The old fort at Mandore was the capital of the Marwar rulers. The biggest attraction in Jodhpur, this magnificent fort is hard to miss as it is situated on a high hill and is spread over 5 kilometres. Mehrangarh fort invokes an image of the strength and splendor of the Rajput kings of the past and their indomitable will.

Mehrangarh Fort Architecture

Built in Rajputana style, the fort is located in the heart of Jodhpur and it is perched on the top of a hill. Its walls are up to 36 metres in height and 21 metres in width, making it one of the most beautiful forts in Rajasthan. There are seven gates to enter the Mehrangarh Fort including Jai Pol, Fateh Pol, and Lodha Pol.

Today, visiting Mehrangarh fort gives tourists an in-depth idea of these important parts of Jodhpur’s history and impeccable insight into the sordid histories of the area. Apart from that, merely wandering through the giant fort and observing and appreciating the beautiful architecture is an experience that must be had when visiting the wonderful city of Jodhpur. 

The Jodhpur Mehrangarh kila is one of the finest forts in the entire country of India as its imposing structure, interesting architecture and compelling history lends it a unique aura that cannot be found elsewhere. Mehrangarh fort is one of the only forts that has still stayed in the possession of the clan that built it and ruled it as their own. As such, it is still well maintained, providing tourists with a lot of things to see and observe.

Mehrangarh houses within itself one of the finest museum collections in Rajasthan, giving travellers the opportunity to marvel at the bounties of the past. Mehrangarh fort entry fees are non-existent, with a ticket only needed for visiting the museum. Walking through the fort itself is open for all visitors. The best time to visit MehranFort fort, Jodhpur is the winter if you want to stay long and explore it thoroughly but there is also a case to be made for the summer when there are not many tourists around.  

Attractions of Mehrangarh Fort

Mehrangarh Fort stands beautifully on a rocky cliff which is about 150 m high. The fort looks magnificently beautiful when the sun rays fall on it. The most striking feature of this fort is its seven gate entrances, out of which the gate of victory (Jai Pol) is the most prominent one. There are various palaces inside the fort which speaks for themselves because of the intricate carvings and royal design. The Phool Mahal is a major attraction here because of its gold ceilings. Other than this, Moti Mahal, Rang Mahal, and Sheesh Mahal are other important and beautiful palaces inside the fort. Mansions like Ajit Villa, Maan Villa, and Umaid Villa are famous for their intricate ceilings, paintings, musical instruments, and other royal antiques. A part of the fort has been converted into the museum which has all the royal and vintage things.

 There is no light and sound show performed at Mehrangarh Fort at present. However, if you're visiting Jodhpur in February, make sure to attend Rajasthan International Folk Festival (RIFF), which is organized against the majestic backdrop of Mehrangarh Fort.

    • Trip to Jodhpur

      Rajasthan,This was a tour of Family and Friends with 17 people( 11 adults and 6 kids) for 10 Days and 9 Nights. We were little apprehensive of the Places, Travel and Accommodation due to group size. we could not judge what would be the best deal and who could provide the best service, but to our surprise, One stop Solution for all our requirements happen to be "SURAJ of UNIQUE TRIP MAKER". He took care of all our Trip requirements and could add Rooms everywhere with my last minute addition of the people. He has given us Good Bus, though not a great Driver. Suraj was very supportive throughout the trip and was very helpful with daily check-update of our trip status. He never shied away making the necessary changes, if required. Our Accomdations were at 1)Jaipur - Rajputana Haveli; 2) Bikaner- Jaswanth Bhavan; 3) Jaisalmer- Tokyo Palace; 4)Samdunes- Rojani Resort; 5)Jodhpur- Kuchaman Haveli; 6)Udaipur- Mukund Vilas; 7) Pushkar - Country Side Resort. I would rate all of them VERYGOOD with "JASWANTH BHAVAN @ Bikaner and ROJANI@Samdunes- OUTSTANDING" while "Kuchaman Haveli - BAD. It was my mistake of Choosing Kuchaman based on pics , though suraj insisted me to opt other one, wish we could have followed his instructions. This was a very organized trip and We, as a large group highly recommend "Unique Trip Maker" to plan vacation and we Rate 5 STARS for the service Suraj has provided. My first choice for our future Trips would be UTM- Suraj. Thanks TRAVEL TRIANGLE and UNIQUE TRIP MAKER for your OUTSTANDING service.

    • Trip to Jodhpur

      Our trip was good with few inconveniences About the hotel accommodation : Hotel Livin Jaipur, Hotel sagar, Bikaner, and hotel Anukune Villas were good . But in hotel treebo, Jodhpur there are no minimum facilities like doormats, soaps , drinking water etc. No proper response and hospitality from staff and management. Food also average. We had a very bad experience. And about Royal Haveli, Jaisalmer, the room is good but very very small. No proper maintainance for restaurant. The location of the hotel itself is very bad with stinking smell. From next time onwards try to rectify these shortcomings while booking the hotels. . Stay at Rojani at sam is awesome. We enjoyed the stay. The hospitality of staff is memorable. The driver Mr. Manoj is a gentleman. The driving is quite good.

      Although I was quite apprehensive about travelling with a kid, the travel agent made sure it was safe. I am happy with the trip but I think there is still room for improvement like a little more planning and sharing timings of various to-visit first etc would have helped. As I was travelling to Rajasthan for the first time it would have been byif it was suggested to start early to avoid rushing through fort visits. The internet didn’t work at times so sharing opening and closing time would make it easy to plan things better. Safety wise I had no concerns and the driver was polite and courteous at all times. Hotels were good except for the one in Bikaner who charged high price for food and one in Jodhpur where service was very poor. Also, I think it would have been better if I was given deluxe rooms instead of super deluxe as that would have brought the overall cost of travelling down. Although the travel agent checked on us if we reached on time etc a little more planning would have helped in terms of sharing the closing time for visit to various forts. All in all a good experience as I think travelling was safe and we didn’t encounter any issue. Thanks for everything and making my trip memorable. My visit to Jaisalmer and Sam was the best in the entire trip.

      Driver was very slowly driving.. not flexible.. delay in starting which was delaying us to reach the destination... hè was stuck to itinerary and any additional visit was charged.. for example on the way back to Jaipur from Jodhpur where we need to cross Ajmer and Pushkar .. we asked to visit Ajmer and pushkar which was just 60kms deviation .. we were charged Rs.1200 extra .. Except driver and his driving everything else was good

      I have been to Rajasthan during 1st week of August 2019. It is really a great experience and all my family members are happy with this trip. Specifically, our travel agent, Ashok from Taj Holiday Mart has taken care every thing and booked nice hotels and arranged a nice Innova Crysta car with excellent driver, Prahlad Sharma. I have been to 3 cities in Rajasthan, Jaipur, Jodhpur and Udaipur. Traditional Heritage hotel at Jaipur and The Ummed at Jodhpur are really excellent in all means. Brahma Niwas hotel at Udaipur is also very good with spacious rooms and excellent location, but very small hotel and needs to be improved in Breakfast spread. Ashok and his team has called us every alternate day and verified about services. Car driver Prahlad ji is very nice person and he has clear knowledge about site seeing places in Rajasthan. Prahlad ji is very polite and maintains time very well. He has guided us very well in all aspects and also covered Pushkar on our request which was not in the plan. Overall I am very happy with this trip and my sincere thanks to Ashok and team of Taj Holiday Mart .
