Jodhpur Tourist Attraction

Mehrangarh Fort-Jodhpur
Mehrangarh Fort, JodhpurLocated atop 150 m high hill, the impressive Mehrangarh Fort Jodhpur overshadows the other attraction of Jodhpur. The name Mehrangarh itself means 'majestic fort' and as such tourists visiting this fort are mighty delighted with its grandeur. The fort was initially built in the year 1459 by the founder of the city, Rao Jodha after he shifted his capital here from Mandore. However, much of what stands today date back to the 17th century, a time when Jaswant Singh held the reins of Jodhpur.

Umaid Bhawan Palace,JodhpurUmaid Bhawan Palace-Jodhpur
The Umaid Bhawan Palace Jodhpur was built between 1929 to 1942 as a famine relief project that gave employment to more than 3000 famine struck people. Today, parts of the palace have been converted into a luxury hotel, and a museum while one extensive wing is still occupied by the royal family.

The palace was built by Maharaja Umaid Singh and designed by the president of the British Royal Institute of Architects. Marble and red sandstone was used to built this opulent structure though no cement was used in its construction. The museum at the palace houses an assortment of beautifully crafted weapons, stuffed leopards, clock collections, and Chinese urns.

Khimsar Fort-Jodhpur
Khimsar fort, Jodhpur80 km from Jodhpur, Khimsar houses the 16th century fort built by Rao Karamsiji. He was the 8th son of the Jodhpur founder, Rao Jodha, who moved to this region and founded the Khimsar dynasty. The construction of the fort began in 1523 AD. The fort’s battle-scarred walls and turrets are a tell-tale reminder of Khimsar’s glorious past. In mid 18th century, the royal family moved in and a new ‘zenana’ (ladies’ wing) was built with finely carved windows in stone grills to provide ‘purdah’ or veil for ladies-in-waiting. Subsequently, Thakur Onkar Singh built for himself a regal wing. The fort has now been converted into a hotel though a section still remains residence to the royal family of Khimsar.
