Mandore Garden, Jodhpur Reviews - Write a Review
Stone architecture is very nice here but park is not maintained well. You can get some best clicks here. There is a museum and temple as well. Tickets for museum is RS. 20 for Indians. Museum have old stone collection , curved paintings of past of 9th century or earlier.
Stone structures are nice. But park is in very bad shape. Fountains are filled with filth. Benches are broken. There is no ticket for entry. You will find lot of monkeys. Located on outskirts of Jodhpur city.
I have lots more expectations about this place. It's definitely well maintained garden. There are many large and small temples in the premises. The parking place is also good. But it can't fulfill my expectations. A royal garden should be like royal.
Many beggars in main garden area. Despite this, the temples are quite impressive, some areas have very beautiful flowers and if you climb onto the hills, there are no people there and the views are great. Overall a very quirky place to visit.
Beautiful place. Complex of temples. Picturesque piece of architecture. Should have better eateries outside the gardens.
