About Meherangarh Fort, Jodhpur
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.

Meherangarh Fort, Jodhpur Reviews
Visiting Mehrangarh fort was a great experience. It is probably the most well kept and equipped monument in India. Each area had a clear flow and story behind it. There were many actual artefacts on display here, which were well preserved and had detailed histories attached. My favourite part however, was the zip-line in the fort. It's a one of a kind experience that you won't get anywhere else in the world. Definitely a must do!
If you love history, culture and architecture and this place is a must visit. Make sure to wet comfortable footwear since there is a lot of walking involved along with climbing some narrow stairs. The fort is huge and you need a few hours to explore it properly.
Its very beautiful place. Best time to visit this place in December to February. A fort based on hill area. from the fort you can see the total down area. its nice and you can take enjoyment with various interesting rope sliding like ropeway.. go and visit. camera is strictly prohibited inside of the fort.
Superb place having ancient fort and lovely place. Photographer will enjoy too much here. You need at least 2 hours to visit this fort. Food and water easily available here. Foreign tourists visit this place mostly and enjoy photography here. Awesome place to visit.
Worth visiting this place. The gallery inside the fort gives a glimpse of the lifestyle of Kings and Queens in those era. The fort is huge but you also have the option to take a lift (you have to book ticket for the same) which would save your time in walking till the top. However if you want to minutely explore the place then you can take the walking route. You also have the option of getting a tourist guide (recommended) to understand the place well.
