The impregnable Mehrangarh Fort, which rises above the city, is one of the largest forts in India. As impressive as it is, as a well preserved heritage structure. One of the highlights is the museum, which houses an outstanding collection of fine and applied arts from the Mughal period. There are seven gates, which include Jayapol.
To the left of the Mehrangarh Fort compound is the Jaswant Thada of Jodhpur, Rajasthan. It is a 19th century royal cenotaph built in commemoration of Maharaja Jaswant Singh II, the 33rd Rathore ruler of Jodhpur. The son of Maharaja Jaswant Singh, Maharaja Sardar Singh, in the memory of his father.
The Umaid Bhawan Palace, was constructed between 1929 and 1944. Constructed in what can loosely be described as the Indo-Art-Deco style, this magnificent edifice with 347 rooms is the world's largest private residence when it opened its doors as a royal residence in 1944.
The Toorji ka Jhalra at the center of city, and almost 250 yrs of building traddition on view. Built in the 1740s, submerged for decades, its recent restoration uncovered over 200 hundred feet of hand carved treasure. Spend a few hours exploring this architectural wonder, and lunch, dine, sip or shop at the many restaurants and shops in the square.
Moinuddin Chishti was a 13th century sufi mystic saint and philosopher. Born in Sistan (modern day Iran), he travelled across South Asia, eventually settling in Ajmer (modern day Rajasthan, India), where he died in 1236. As local as well as national rulers began to come and pray, the structure was expanded. In 1332, the sultan of Delhi (Tyghluq dynasty) Mohammad Bin Tughluq constructed a dargah (a commemoration structure constructed around the tomb of Muslim saints, where people from all religions come to pray and ask for favours) and it grew in popularity and size over the years.
Rao Jodha Desert Rock Park was created in 2006 to try and restore the natural ecology of a large, rocky wasteland next to Mehrangarh Fort in Jodhpur. It had suffered years of neglect and was overrun by baavlia, an invasive, thorny shrub introduced from central America.
