Mandore Gardens In Jodhpur
Mandore, located about 9 kms north of the main Jodhpur city, was once the capital of the kingdom of Marwar before Rao Jodha moved it to Mehrangarh and the newly founded city of Jodhpur. This proud village was home to a substantially large fort and township. After subsequently moving to Jodhpur and the declining importance of Mandore, it did not see the sort of progress as did Mehrangarh. So, all that remains today are some assorted buildings and the exquisite Mandore Garden.
The Mandore Garden is this hauntingly beautiful tract of land housing all the ruins of the ancient royal fastness of the Rathore clan. The Mandore Garden, with its high rock terrace, also houses cenotaphs or ‘dewals’ for many of the kings that once ruled from here. These cenotaphs are unlike any you’ll find in Rajasthan due to their umbrella-like structures. They have been erected by taking a cue from the architecture of a Hindu temple. Made of red sandstone, these structures are four-story high and have remarkable spires along with finely defined columns. The best dewal is that of Maharaja Ajit Singh. Soothe your eyes with the colors of this lush garden and red sandstone structures nestled on a hill outcrop.
Another popular attraction close to the cenotaphs in Mandore Gardens is the Hall of Heroes. It's dedicated to the various deities and folk fighters of Rajputs. The hall houses statues carved from rocks painted in bright hues. Tourists are often attracted by this huge rock wall which has a high relief and colorful paintings depicting heroes of the locality like Chamunda and Pabuji.
Inside the garden is yet another beautiful attraction - the shrine of ‘Three Hundred Million Gods’. This sanctum contains images of many Hindu Gods in vibrant colors. One can climb the hill and admire the sight of the ruined historic Mandore city and its palace.<READMORE>
In recent times, due to their beauty and historical significance, the Mandore Gardens have become quite the tourist hotspot. Barely a few kilometres from the frequently visited city of Jodhpur, the Mandore Garden is a serene spot, great for a family outing. the Mandore Garden now offers tourists the opportunity to be close to serenity while introducing them to the roots of the great powers that once ruled this land. All in all, this beautiful garden stands as a proof of the royalty of the serene town of Mandore.
