A part of the historical Mehrangarh Fort in Jodhpur, Jai Pol is a massive gateway, constructed as a victory memorial. This gate is one of the seven entrances of the impressive citadel that is set atop a hillock. Maharaja Man Singh, the former king of Marwar, built this gate in 1806. The reason behind the construction of this gate was commemorating the triumph of Marwar against rival dynasties of Bikaner and Jaipur.

Incorporating elements of traditional Rajasthani architecture, this imposing structure looks magnificent. Even today, cannon ball scars formed during the battle can be seen near its walls, which are testimony of Jodhpur's eventful history.
