Meherangarh Fort - Review
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
The Fort of Mehrangarh is unquestionably one of the most sought after forts in Rajasthan & in turn India 🇮🇳 💕 Known for its impregnable defense & unsullied beauty. The royalty 👑 & grandeur is scintillating. There are many commercial artifacts & antiques shops inside the fort. A plethora of kiosk of food, books & clothing as well. Overall a place worthy of visiting at least once if you're in Rajasthan
Arguably the best fort in Rajasthan. Very well maintained and it appears impregnable. Taking a guide is recommended. Audio tours are also available if you want to do it at your own pace. We took an elevator to the top as we were tired but the best way is to walk up to the top level and feel the huge walls close in on you.
everything is good.. only thing is no food available.. so go there full stomach.. we had to return to the town again for food.. otherwise worth watching.. better to go by lift and use audio guide. it will both save time and money
I can say little; the scale of this seat of the Maharajah is awesome. Simply look at any decent guide. Set on a cliff top, a lift is available. The historic collections are well presented in their different areas. There is so much beyond the awesome view to take in here. Caution is advised for those less than fully fit.
This place looks awesome from distance. I drove my car to the fort. The parking space is limited. Once you reach there, a person need to walk a long distance inside the fort to explore each and every corner. A view of the city can be seen from this palace. Also, very old temple is located inside the temple, it is a must visit place.
