Mandore Garden - Review
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.

Mandore Garden, Jodhpur Reviews
👍मंडोर जोधपुर से लगभग 10 किलोमीटर की दूरी पर स्थित है। 15 वीं सदी में राव जोधा द्वारा मेहरानगढ़ के किले के निर्माण से पहले मारवाड़ के शासकों की यही राजधानी थी। अब यहां किले के अवशेष ही बचे हैं। यहां के मंडोर गार्डन और इसकी इसकी इमारतों का निर्माण महाराजा अजीत सिंह एवं उनके उत्तराधिकारियों ने करवाया। अजीत सिंह वही हैं, जिनकी माता का औरंगजेब से बड़ा विरोध रहा, राजा जसवंत सिंह के पुत्र। किवदंतियों में मंडोर रावण की ससुराल भी है, यहीं रावण ने मंदोदरी से विवाह किया था।
A very historic place having full support from nature because there are number of monkeys, peacocks and other natural creatures.You will forget that i am at the greatest desert area of India. Everyone who took birth on earth should visit mandor garden once in one's life to get a proper definition of nature and art...... And also visit other historical places of Rajasthan which has its different qualities than other state of India 🇮🇳
The place is not well maintained. The memorials are very good to see. Public washroom is there. Beware of the monkeys. Place is historic
The temples build over the graves are beautiful...reminds you of Puri. The garden is well maintained and staff is helpful. They take pleasure in showing you the place around and telling you the history behind them. Must visit.
Way too many wild monkeys around. Dont carry food and be careful. The structures were beautiful and have managed to retain a lot of their original charm. The local authorities must spend time cleaning up all the trash and have more security.
