Mandore is located about 10 Kms north of Jodhpur. It was the former capital of Maharajas of Marwar.The ruined fort and palace of yester years are still intact on the hilltop.Its extensive Mandore garden, with high rock terrace, makes it a popular local attraction. In the Mandore garden, there are the dewals or cenotaphs of Jodhpur's former rulers. Instead of the usual chhatri-shaped cenotaphs typical of Rajasthan, the cenotaphs of the famous Mandore garden of Jodhpur, Rajasthan are built along the lines of a Hindu temple. They are four stories high, with fine columns and an elegant spire, all in red sandstone. The most impressive dewal is the dewal of Maharaja Ajit Singh. These cenotaphs are set in beautiful landscaped gardens.Mandore is considered an oasis in the desert with its enticing laid out gardens. Mandore a visual treat because of the vast expanses of greenery of Peepal, Banyan, Palms and Plantains along with cascading fountains and lovely peacocks and monkeys.Now the garden has been converted into a park for children.

by mantru

Umaid Bhavan Palace in Jodhpur, India is one of India's most imposing and recent palaces. Umaid Bhavan palace of Jodhpur, Rajasthan was built by Maharaja Umaid Singh. It is named after him only. He utilized the services of a well-known Edwardian architect, Henry Vaughan Lanchester for the construction of this palace. It contains three hundred and forty seven rooms.
Jodhpur's Umaid Bhawan Palace was actually built for the welfare of the people. The purpose was to give employment to the people of Jodhpur during a long period of drought and famine. The construction of the palace utilized approximately one million square feet (90,000 m²). Another special feature of the palace is the use of a special type of sandstone, called Chittar sandstone, giving it a special appearance. Umaid Bhavan palace of Jodhpur is a fine example of Indo-Saracenic architecture. Over three thousand artisans were employed in the construction of this palace.
The Umaid Bhavan palace was converted into a heritage hotel in 1977. The Palace is now segmented into the Royal residence, the Heritage Hotel and the Museum. In a part of the palace the royal family of Jodhpur still lives. In another part of the palace is a well-maintained museum. India's Umaid Bhavan palace has an amazing Central Rotunda, the cupola rising to a hundred and five feet high.
Nothing much to see as general public can only view the museum,but the palace is really huge.

Mehrangarh Fort

by keeweechic

This fort is huge - 5 km long and set high up on a hill, some 125 metres up. Mehrangarh means Majestic, and that indeed it is. It is one of the largest forts in India. The Fort has 4 gates and was originally started in 1459 by Rao Jodha, the founder of Jodhpur. There is a legend which tells of a hermit which was evicted from his home in order that the fort be created. He was so irate that he cast a curse upon the building of the fort, that any building on the hill would have major problems obtaining water. In a drastic measure to counter the curse a man volunteered to be buried alive in the foundations of the fort.
