A visit to impregnable Mehrangarh Fort of Jodhpur

Mehrangarh Fort

On a trip to Jodhpur when you have just one or a half day in the city which has so much to offer, choose to visit Mehrangarh Fort! Nestled on a hilltop slightly on the outskirt of the town the fort overlooks the “blue city” Jodhpur and the rugged landscape of rural Rajasthan. Mehrangarh Fort bears the testimony of architectural elegance of medieval royal India. Built in 15th century, the fort offers a breathtaking eagle eye view of the azure city of Jodhpur. Its indoor palaces named flower palace, pearl palace and mirror palace, filigreed windows, secret corridors and grand hall have an intriguing story to tell.

The museum at Mehrangarh Fort contemptuously exhibits the weapons and armors used in battle during those times. Magnificent robes, jewellery, decorative items, and grand gold palanquins used for carrying kings and queens, are also on display in the museum. On a visit to the Mehrangarh Fort you’ll find a lot of exotic paintings and a painstakingly maintained turban gallery treasured by the palace officials. Adventure enthusiasts can also enjoy camel riding and zip line riding, which are some of the interesting activities to enjoy here.
