Tourist Attractions in Jodhpur
Mehrangarh Fort

Mehrangarh Fort is about 5 kms from Jodhpur Town . Situated on a steep hill, Mehrangarh Fort is one of the largest forts in India . The fort has been a witness to the splendor of a bygone era. The beauty and the grandeur of numerous palaces in the fort narrates a saga of hard sandstones yielding to the chisels of skilled Jodhpuri sculptures. To enter the Mehrangarh fort, seven gates have to be crossed. Some of these gates still bear marks of many a siege that this fort has withstood. This formidable fort is among the best in India with exquisitely latticed windows in residential apartments within.

Jaswant Thada

Close to the Mehrangarh fort lies this 19th century royal cenotaph, built in white marble, in commemoration of Maharaja Jaswant Singh. Rare portraits of Jodhpur 's rulers are also displayed here. It was small, but still had features that were delicate and unique. Some stones are so thin and highly polished that the sunlight illuminates them, causing a warm glow inside. Also, the building has wonderful views over the city and of the fort.

Umaid Bhawan Palace

The only palace to be built in the 20th century, as a famine relief project which gave employment to people for 16 years. Its sculpted lawns with sandstone pavements and bougainvillea bushes are a soothing sight in the midst of this desert city. Built by Maharaja Umaid Singh (1929 -1942) and named after him, this exquisite palace is also known as Chittar Palace because of the local chittar sandstone used. The palace now runs as a hotel, though a part of it has been retained as a museum and part as royal residence.

T his museum houses a rich collection of exhibits - armory, textiles, local arts and crafts, miniature paintings. It also displays portraits of rulers, manuscripts and images of Jain Tirthankars.
