Mandore Garden Overview

Book Jodhpur Hotels Book Jodhpur Holiday Packages

Mandore Garden is a heritage spot, situated in its namesake town, towards the outskirts of Jodhpur. After the town was abandoned for the protection of the Mehrangarh Fort, the garden remained as a reminder of its glorious past. This garden has a high rock terrace, which is its most prominent attraction.

Cenotaphs (dewals) of Jodhpur's erstwhile rulers are dotted across this landscaped garden, which are different from those found in other regions of Rajasthan. These red sandstone cenotaphs resemble Hindu temples and have four storeys, elaborately designed columns and tall spires. Notable amongst these dewals include the memorial dedicated to Maharaja Ajit Singh and other built for the Maharani atop a hill.

The hall of heroes, dedicated to brave Rajput fighters and Hindu deities, lies close to these cenotaphs. Colourful rock statues and images of these heroes and Gods adorn this hall.

'The Shrine of the Three Hundred Million Gods' is an unmissable thing of interest in Mandore Garden. Vibrant illustrations of Hindu Gods are present here, which depict the brilliance of artists of those times. On climbing the nearby hill, visitors get to see the old palace and ruins of Mandore.
