Mehrangarh Fort
tips & insights


This wonder accommodates several. Their elaborate interiors boast intricately carved panels, delicate screens, stained glass windows. These design elements vividly illustrate the luxuriant lifestyle of the maharajas. A few period rooms take you back to the splendor of a bygone era.


Some palace spaces were converted to exhibit costumes, furnishings, howdahs, palanquins, musical instruments, bejeweled swords, and more from various Jodhpur historical periods.


Mehrangarh Fort dramatically sits on a steep outcropping overlooking Jodhpur city. This creates stirring views looking up from the city and looking outward from the ramparts.

One-hit town
