This was the former capital of the Rathore clans of the Rajput’s and is an ancient town located near Jodhpur. In the Mandore garden, there are the dewals or cenotaphs of Jodhpur's former rulers. Instead of the usual chhatri-shaped cenotaphs typical of Rajasthan, the cenotaphs of the famous Mandore garden of Jodhpur, Rajasthan are built along the lines of a Hindu temple. They are four stories high, with fine columns and an elegant spire, all in red sandstone. The most impressive dewal is the dewal of Maharaja Ajit Singh. These cenotaphs are set in beautiful landscaped gardens. The cenotaphs of the Maharani are set on a rocky outcrop over the hill.
Near to the cenotaphs is the hall of heroes. The hall is dedicated to various deities and Rajput folk heroes. The statues of the deities and heroes we are carved out of rock and painted in bright colors. Also in this garden of Jodhpur, is "The Shrine of the Three Hundred Million Gods", filled with brightly colored images of the various Hindu Gods. As you climb up the hill, you come to the ruined city of Mandore, with its old palace.

Surprisingly beautiful. You wouldn't have heard about this place a lot but it is a must visit. The architecture is amazing and the sculpture is ancient. Thumbs up!! In case you are traveling far, this place has good toilets that are well maintained.
This place is beautiful. Temples are very creatively structured. And there is cleanliness maintained. So much peace and you can spend a good time reading books or listen to some good music. Must visit.
Ancient temples are good to take photographs,you can enjoy the beauty from heights .but there are some places which are unhygienic, Don't carry fruit and edibles otherwise you will be in attention of monkeys(and also its illegal to fed monkeys), mandore garden is free to visit. Enjoy your travel :)
Ancient garden having historically important, but same time well ignored by local administration in terms of cleanliness, discipline, if you happen to be a political person your vehicle can roam inside else general public need to walk all around, you will see guards doing gossip in the security hut.
Mandore is superb...such an epic garden....with lots of fun and history inside...it...but....due to government n public neglegency...it became such an garbage area...for local people...any body came n sits here..like he is d chief of this place n ruins the environment...the only..advice for d uplifting this place..is...there must be an entry fees of around 20 or more per person for d visit to filter out d some ragpickers...which..has ruin d place
