The charm of the Indian culture and vigor of the Rajput warriors is collectively reflected in this magnificent fort, one of the best in India. Standing tall and proud on a rocky hill in Jodhpur’s skyline, this fort is still run by the royal family of Jodhpur. A pocket-full-of history, legends and myths, this fort will enchant you in every way.
The northeast gate Jaipol is the prime entrance. The Dodh Kangra Pol was an external gate built in the 16th century. The worth visiting attractions inside the fort are Chokelao bagh which is a restored Rajput garden, the fatehpol or the victory gate, the Imritia pol and the Loha pol, the Chamunda devi temple and the Surajpol gate.
Remarkable point to visit is the wall inside the gates Imritia pol and Loha pol which bear the hand imprints of royal widows who threw themselves in maharaja’s funeral pyres. The bravery and the melancholy will hit your soul as you visit the place.
Also noteworthy is the museum, which is a superb example of Rajput architecture. The beautiful network of stone-latticed courtyards and halls which originally served as the fort palace are finely carved in sandstone. The collection includes royal trappings of the rulers, elephant howdahs and Jodhpur’s royal palanquin collection, textiles, paintings, manuscripts, headgear and the curved sword of the Mughal emperor Akbar, plus some wonderful ephemera, such as ladies’ ivory-inlaid dumb-bells. The other gallery is the armory, whose daggers, armor, rifles, spears, swords and axes are all works of art. The gallery dedicated to traditional miniature art is also worth observing.
The Takht villas or the bed chamber of Maharaja Takhat Singh, the zenana or women’s quarters, the Moti Mahal is an alluring treat to the eyes. Meherangarh fort - Rajasthan tourist attraction added in the Rajasthan Itinerary 2 Weeks. Must visit this amazing attraction.

Beautiful, majestic... Words are not enough to describe this place. Also one of the cleanest forts I've ever visited in India. The history of this place is well preserved. There's also a modern elevator if you are not ready or able to walk up
Entrance fee RS 500 for Non-Indian citizens. Beautiful fort with some amazing sculptures. My opinion, the visit was handled perfectly by the admin. The fort was kept somehow cleaner than other forts in India. The audio tour was also very reliable. You will definitely love the place.

Great place । यह राव जोधाजी का फालसा है यह 1459 A.D. से स्थापित है । यहां विदेशी पर्यटकों का काफी आना जाना लगा रहता है। इस किले में राजा का शयनकक्ष राजदरबार, शीश महल, ,,, आदि आज भी वैसे के वैसे ही है । यह तोपो का भारी संग्रहण है और हां यहां पर google map की सहायता से नही जाना चाहिए क्योंकि मैप बाजार वाला रास्ता बताता है जो गाड़ी के लिए सही नही है।अगर आपको रास्ता याद नही है तो आप वह के लोकल आदमियो की मदद ले सकते हो। यह किला ऑडियो गाइड भी आफर करता है यह नम्बर सिस्टम में बटा हुआ है यह किसी गाइड की जरूरत नही है सब कुछ systematic तरीके के से है यह किला कम संग्राहलय ज्यादा है
