Chamunda Mata Temple is an ancient shrine built within the premises of the Mehrangarh Fort. The temple lies in the southern end of the fort and has a typical stone architecture. This shrine is dedicated to Chamunda Mata, who is also called Chamundi Devi and Goddess Chamundeshwari. Rao Jodha, the founder of Jodhpur and a fervent follower of the goddess, had this temple built during his reign. Aware of the mystical powers of the deity, Rao Jodha brought Her idol from Mandore to Mehrangarh in the year 1460 and placed it in the main shrine. The idol of the goddess is made using black stone.

Till date, the goddess is regarded as the Isht Devi (adopted goddess) of Jodhpur royals and residents. Locals strongly believe that the goddess is their guarding deity. Countless devotees assemble during the holy festivals of Dussehra and Navratri to seek blessings of the goddess.
