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 - Write a Review
The major attraction in Jodhpur is this fort. It became modern with keeping the roots intact. You can take a lift to go all the way top and then come back walking visiting the spots. The view of the city, museum and maintenance is great. DO take a guide, else you will miss the details and the story. We had lunch in a restaurant in the fort which was actually good.
Great fort. Easily 3-4 hrs to cover all floors. A lift (elevator) is available to go to near top of the fort for people who cannot walk but then you will miss most of the interesting areas. Entry tickets and lift are decently priced. Senior citizens and kids get discounted price but you need to explicitly ask.
Beautiful historical place... Very well maintained... Superb carvings.. .elevator also there which is very convenient . They have zip line here if interested.. Its an awesome experience.
The fort is so magnificent. Well maintained and has a lift that goes to the top. Museum has old era swords and other historical things to see. The fort architecture is awesome and looks so solid. Easily takes a couple of hours to see the fort. Its is a must go on your trip to Jodhpur.
The fort is worth visiting. Visitors are allowed to enter till 1645 Hrs. Thereafter, one can visit till 1830hrs or so. There is an elevator to go to the top floor of the fort for a fee of Rs.40/- only per head. It is one way only. The museum is well arranged. One has come down while visiting different galleries at different floors.
