Reaching the museum is a big pain. Vehicles must be allowed to drop tourists atleast till the main gate. This will help senior citizens and small kids.Museum was good. Ticket rates can be on lower side but elevator charges are reasonable.Museum is worth seeing. Please dont do any shopping on the fort. Unreasonable prices.Lemonade in the fort Cafe is very tasty.

Mehrangarh Fort,JodhpurMehrangarh Fort covers an area of 1,200 acres (486 hectares) in Jodhpur, Rajasthan. The complex is located on a hilltop around 122 metres above the surrounding plain,[1] and was constructed circa 1459 by Rajput ruler Rao Jodha. Inside its boundaries there are several palaces known for their intricate carvings and expansive courtyards, as well as a museum housing various relics. A winding road leads to and from the city below. The imprints of the impact of cannonballs fired by attacking armies of Jaipur can still be seen on the second gate. To the left of the fort is the chhatri of Kirat Singh Soda, a soldier who fell on the spot defending MehrangarhThere are seven gates, which include Jayapol (meaning victory gate), built by Maharaja Man Singh to commemorate his victories over Jaipur and Bikaner armies. There is also a Fattehpol (also meaning victory gate), which commemorates Maharaja Ajit Singhji victory over Mughals.Some of the notable festivals taking place here include the World Sacred Spirit Festival and Rajasthan International Folk FestivalRao Jodha, the chief of the Rathore clan, is credited with the origin of Jodhpur in India.[2] He founded Jodhpur in 1459 as the capital of Marwar (Mandore was the previous capital). He was one of Ranmals 24 sons and became the fifteenth Rathore ruler. One year after his accession to the throne, Jodha decided to move his capital to the safer location of Jodhpur, as the one thousand years old Mandore fort was no longer considered to provide sufficient security.With the trusted aid of Rao Nara (son of Rao Samra), the Mewar forces were subdued at Mandore. With that, Rao Jodha gave Rao Nara the title of Diwan. With the help of Rao Nara, the foundation of the fort was decided on 12 May 1459[3] by Jodha on a rocky hill 9 kilometres (5.6 mi) to the south of Mandore. This hill was known as Bhakurcheeria, the mountain of birds. According to legend to build the fort he had to displace the hills sole human occupant, a hermit called Cheeria Nathji, the lord of birds. Cheeria Nathji was a man with the local population as his followers and hence influential in the region. When requested to move he refused categorically. This happened many times. Rao Jodha then took extreme measures and sought help from another more powerful saint, the female warrior sage of Charan community Shri Karni Mata of Deshnok. On request of the king she came and asked Cheeria Nathji to quit immediately. Seeing a superior power he left at once but cursed Rao Jodha with words Jodha! May your citadel ever suffer a scarcity of water!. Rao Jodha managed to appease the hermit by building a house and a temple in the fort. Seeing the influence of Karni Mata Rao Jodha then invited her to lay down the foundation stone of the Mehrangarh Fort and the same was carried out by her. Today only the forts of Bikaner and Jodhpur remain in the hands of Rathores, both had their foundation stone laid by Shri Karni Mata. All other Rajput forts of Rajasthan were abandoned for some or the other reasons by the respective clans. Only the Rathors of Jodhpur and Bikaner have their forts with them till date. This fact is considered a miracle by the local population and is attributed to Shri Karni Mata. Rao Jodha also granted villages of Mathania and Chopasni to the two Charan warlords who were sent by him to request maa Mehaai to come to Jodhpur.To ensure that the new site proved propitious; he buried a man of the Meghwal caste called Raja Ram Meghwal, who offered his services voluntarily, alive in the foundations as this was considered auspicious those days. Raja Ram Meghwal was promised that in return his family would be looked after by the Rathores. To this day his descendants still live in Raj Bagh, Raja Ram Meghwals Garden.

It is a medieval wonder which is enthralling, captivating and scintillating in equal measures.... !Visitors to this fort are treated to panoramic view of an architectural wonder.. ! This building rises meteorically over the city of Jodhpur from a hillock, and that is the first thing anyone will notice from an aircraft as it approaches the Jodhpur airport....Ensconced inside the fort are many palaces, temples and rooms..notable among them are Kings Durbar, Sheesh Mahal and a room with golden ceiling ..Well maintained by Mehrangarh Fort and Museum Trust which also provides employment to local population..There are few shops inside the fort for purchasing souvenirs..Fork singers also present in the campus who will happily sing folk songs for you...Mehrangarh Fort is an amazing piece of art and its walls whisper majestic stories in your ears....

Review №5

Its was historical monuments. From at the top of the fort you can see whole blue city jodhpur. You can explore many other things nearby.

Review №6

Situated on highest mountain of Jodhpur so it gives a perfect view of whole Jodhpur. Visit on winter or rainy days because in summer the fort is so hot and difficult to walk around. Inside the forts museum we can see lots of weapons and swords of kings and their are shops inside fort where they sell products made by local peoples.

Review №7

One of the most beautiful forts in India which actually gives you a great vibe of reliving the moments of the times when people used these places to actually live! The place is amazing and you can see the Blue city as it fades away into the horizon of this blissful city of Rajasthan. A lot of movies and web series have been shot at this place one kf them is the very famous The dark knight rises! Id totally recommend this place if you really wanna visit and experience Rajasthan.

Review №8

The fort was fantabulous! The views the architecture everything was out of the world. Worth every minute.

Review №9

A very well maintained fort. Carving done on wood and stone is marvelous. Museum, fort, Chamunda mata mandir and gardens all should be visited once. Parking fees is 10/- rupees for two wheelers and 50/- rupees for cars.Entry fees is 200/- person. But 100/- rupees for students if they have their student id card.

Review №10

Good place to visit.Need at least one hour.Gives good idea about history of Rajput.

Review №11

The fort is of an historical importance when it comes to Jodhpur and also indian history. The fort is well built structure and covers a huge landmass. There are many levels in the fort and it takes easily upto 3 hours to visit the place fully and admire the beauty.The fort is photographers delight. There is ample parking available near the fort complex, you have to walk some distance to reach the fort.There is no food facility within the fort complex, so suggest you should carry water and something to munch on.There is proper frisking that happens at the fort entry and you have to get a ticket to visit the fort.Locals do visit the for more oftenYou can get a birds eye view from the fort of Jodhpur cityThe fort houses temple and pond as wellSafe place to visit with family, friends, soloTimings are from 9:00 till 18:00 daily

Review №12

Mehrangarh museum and fort is really Majestic.The entire Jodhpur cityscape is dominated by this mighty fort. Auto drivers often overcharge to go there. Any food item is not allowed inside.Inspite of all this fort is must visit place. Be prepared to walk alot in fort area in hot weather. I will not recommend to visit in summer season.

Review №13

Review №17

The fort is an example to see a glimpse of the past in the present day. Worth a visit !

Review №18

Must visit if you are in Jodhpur. Try going early in the morning. Be there by 9 am as thats the opening timings. Ample parking space. You need to walk + take stairs at some place inside the fort. Not much though.Youll need atleast 1-2 hours to fully see this place. My suggestion is to get a guide and see this beautiful place.Rs 200 entry ticket + Rs 100/ one side lift & Rs 500 for the guide.Lift takes you to the museum which is on the upper floor. Though there is an option to walk until the museum.Do carry an umbrella + water bottle + sun glasses. Even if you visit in the morning, it may get hot by the time you finish the tour. So keep these things handy.Plus if you have a baby on stroller, the fort is not at all stroller friendly. You might have to carry the stroller in your hand at multiple places as there are stairs. Still manageable as our guide helped us in parking our stroller in a safe place.

Review №19

Mehrangarh Museum situated in Jodhpur is a very nice place. One have to hike about 1 km for visiting the fort, Id advise to 50+ who are not comfortable to get a Rs 50/- Lift ticket to avoid hike. The entry price for the fort and museum is Rs 200/- per person which is worth. Dont forget to go to upstairs thats where the real beauty of fort is. Carrying a water bottle will be beneficial as it will be hot during April to October. At last, Make your schedule such that you can watch sunset there, which is so mesmerizing that I cant describe in words.

Review №20

One of the giant forts in India which is very beautifully carved, the beauty of this fort can’t be explained in the words. You require at least half a day to cover the entire fort and museum. In the museum, you can get to see the royal history of Rajasthan and Jodhpur.This fort is so giant that you can get a glimpse of this fort from any corner of the city. Don’t miss seeing the sunset from this fort.

I have visited this fort twice. The ramparts of the fort look intimidating.The fort and its museum is a must watch for tourists visiting Jodhpur.I would definitely recommend the audio guide, a human guide is also good though!One can easily spend 3-4 hours exploring the Fort. The views from the fort is awesome.

Review №23

Hiiii, its something you want to see in early hours, because amount of people is super high, buut its quite understandable, such a magnificent and well preserved historical piece of art, craft, beauty.We had our lunch there and some rope excursion :) flying around.

Review №24

Review №26

Mehrangarh, the muscular fort that towers over the Blue City of Jodhpur. Mehrangarh Museum Trust, which manages the monument, and which appears very well organized and active.The entry fees is Rs 200 per head and as per my experience people should definitely visit once as they will find inside the fort a variety of things such as Temple, handicraft stall, food joint and people with sitar and tablas signing great folk song.Also, you will get to know about the proud history of the fort and mesmerizing view from the top elevation of the fort. ❤️

Good enough to visit for people loving the history and traditional architecture. It is also worth since it gives mesmerizing views of the Blue City Jodhpur.

Review №39

Dominating the old city of Jodhpur, the massive Mehrangarh Fort, one of the largest fortifications in India, was built in the 15th century to safeguard the people of the famous Blue City, as Jodhpur is still known - a name derived from its indigo colored houses, painted blue to deflect the heat.Built on top of a towering outcrop, Mehrangarh is an amazing feat of construction, its massive walls all but impenetrable. Access is via one of seven splendid gates, including Jaya Pol and Fateh Pol (the latter still bears scars from cannon attacks).Highlights of a visit include exploring the forts fascinating network of courtyards and palaces, as well as a museum housing a splendid collection of artifacts related to the Maharajas. Be sure to spend time in the historic center of Jodhpur itself, famous for its eight city gates, a lovely old clock tower, and numerous bazaars selling everything from vegetables to sweets, spices, and handicrafts.Address: Fort Road, Jodhpur, Rajasthan 342006.

Its a huge fort. It has a rich history, great carving on sand stones and royalty which you will feel during visiting this place.

Review №41

A good museum to see some ancient things of Rajwada of Rajasthan with the view of a battle fort and whole ajmer city.

Review №42

Beautifully maintained fort. Every where self explanatory boards are there. Glasses are clean in museum. Entry fee ₹200 . Guide fée ₹200. Museum closes at 5:00 pm IST. One who enters early can stay in the fort till 6:30 pm for sunset..Sheesh Mahal is a sight for eyes. Guards in rajasthani uniform are there everywhere..There are different floors showcasing paintings , artifacts, mats and other clothes used , weapons. Etc.After the museum, one can visit the fort, canon points and shaktipeeth..Local art shops are there at the end..Photography is allowed throughout..Even washrooms were clean. No food allowed. So it avoids people to litter which is a great thing...Improvements:1. Car parking fee is ₹50 where theres no one to look after and no shade.2. Museum timings can be extended till 7-8 pm. Not all travellers prefer to roam during hot days of Rajasthan. The ones who want also can cover other places n finally come to museum.

Mehrangarh Fort in Jodhpur dominates the skyline of the Blue City from its lofty central position on a rugged cliff, where it seems to have sprouted up out of the rock. The fort is one of the most impressive and best preserved forts in India. It has been thoughtfully turned into a superb tourist destination that will delight everyone from photographers to history buffs. The illustrious fort has also featured in the writings of Rudyard Kipling and Aldous Huxley, and was named Best Fortress in Asia by Time magazine in 2007.History of the FortRathore Rajput king Rao Jodha started building Mehrangarh Fort in 1459, when he established Jodhpur as his new capital. Legend has it that the fort had a rather gruesome beginning, with the voluntary live burial of a man named Raja Ram Meghwal in it. This was carried out to lift a curse, which had been placed on the land by a hermit who Rao Jodha forced to leave.To ensure the prosperity of the fort, Rao Jodha called the powerful female warrior sage Karni Mata of Deshnok to lay the foundation stone and bless it. This is believed to have been successful because, unlike other Rajput forts that ended up abandoned, Mehrangarh Fort still remains in the hands of the royal family.The fort has remarkably diverse architecture from different periods, right up to the 20th century, due to the various phases of its construction by subsequent rulers. These phases were commonly linked to the tumultuous timeline of the rulers defeat and victory. Upon regaining control of the fort, they would expand and upgrade it to meet their needs.Indias independence from the British in 1947 spelled the end of royalty, as the kings had to give up their ruling rights after India became a republic. In return, the Indian government provided them with an allowance. When the government suddenly abolished this allowance in 1971, the royals were left without an income. In order to make money, Maharaja Gaj Singh II decided to embrace heritage tourism. He breathed new life into the crumbling and neglected fort, which hed inherited, by throwing it open to tourists.How to Visit Mehrangarh FortWhile its possible to go inside Mehrangarh Fort for free, youll need to buy a ticket to access the important attractions. Tickets are available from the counter near the forts main entrance, Jai Pol, on the northeast side.Its possible to walk up to the entrance, along an evocative path from the Old City, in about 15 minutes. The incline is quite steep though. If this is a concern, its much easier to take a taxi or auto rickshaw from the road. However, walking is really recommended to fully appreciate the forts magnificence and enormous size. A series of gates, of which Jai Pol is the first, lead into the fort. If youre feeling low on energy, take the elevator near the ticket counter to the top instead.Mehrangarh Fort is open daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tickets cost 600 rupees for foreigners (including an excellent audio guide with headphones) and 100 rupees for Indians. Those Indians who want the audio guide can pay an additional 180 rupees for it. Entry to the fort is free every year on May 12, in celebration of Jodhpur Foundation Day.To visit the fort after dark, join one of the special Mehrangarh by Night guided tours led by the museum curator. There are two slots: 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. and 7 p.m. to 8 p.m.Another option is to have dinner at one of the forts restaurants. Chokelao Mahal Terrace is a romantic fine-dining restaurant with a garden setting. Mehran Terrace, on the rooftop, is less expensive but still atmospheric.Do note that food isnt allowed to be taken into the fort. You can leave it at the storage counter outside.

Review №46

See from anywhere in Jodhpur, this fort will astonish you at every single sight.You cant forget Dark knight rises opening and a fantastic sequence it was, shot at Mehrangarh fort.Located at a hill top, fort was made Rao Jodha in 1459. This place offers magnificent view of Blue city, many many heritage of the royals in the museum, the elephant haudas, arms and weapons used in those times, the coins, the dresses etc etc. You need a good 03 hours to see the entire place. Kindly carry water because it is really exhausting in the summers. I heard that in Navratri, millions of people come here to worship. There is also a shop located here which offers souvenirs and other items.If youre planning to visit this place, also plan to go to Rao Jodha park and Jaswant thada..

Its magnificent. Just observe things here. Mehrangarh Fort is a must visit place. You will not be bored if you admire history and love walking. Yes, you will have to walk a lot if you want to cover the most parts of the Fort, as it is a large fort with multiple levels. Also, visit the area with all the blue houses, for an interesting city walk. An experience to remember.

Amazing place/palace to get to know your own cultural heritage and past.

The fort is spread over an area of 5 km and is built on 125 m high hill in the outskirts of Jodhpur city.There are seven gates, which can be used to enter the Mehrangarh fort. These 7 gates are made by different rulers, and are built in honour of victory over Bikaner and Jaipur armies.

Mehrangarh Museum One Of The Finest Fort Converted In A Ancient Museum For Tourists To Know The Ancient Culture Of India...The Museum Contains Major Of The Things Which Were Used By The Kings And Emperors Of The Mehrangarh For Or I Would Say Kingdom...I Have Uploaded Some Of The Photos Which I Took During My Visit....It Was Worth Visiting The Museum!!

Review №54

!!Awesome!!Yes, its really an awesome place to visit.I really like historical monuments and if so are you, definitely to visit the place to get to know about the Brave Rajputs and their dynasty and glory.You would be amazed to see the art of building which will force to think what was the standard of artists during ancient time where really less machineries were available.Chamunda Mata Temple is inside of Fort which is highly recommended for devotees.Bottom line is - Know your ancient, their values and glory before it disappear.Further, you may take Zip Line here (INR.2K) for 6 zip ways.Best time to visit morning or evening avoid day time due to Heat Of #SunCity.Elevator facility is available here to reach to 2nd floor at INR.50Location is easily reachable and few other nice places are nearby.Note - Fort is covering huge area to visit hence, firstly visit this fort and plan to go somewhere else.

Mesmerizing experience! Entry fee is ₹150 for Indian citizens. The towering walls will make you go wow. The walk towards main fort is steep but you have option to take lift for ₹50. The architecture is marvelous. There werent many tourists due to Covid-19 pandemic so that was the best part, exploring was easy. The museum displays vivid history of royal culture and subjects. Theres cafe and refreshments and shops. It takes 2-3hr minimum to explore the whole fort, worth every minute 😁

Review №57

Review №66

One of the most visit places in Jodhpur. The fort stands tall in the centre of the city and can be viewed from almost every where.The museum shows history and Royal life of the maharajas. The collection of weapons and tools will surely take you through the history. The fort is really huge and you need atleast a few hours to cover it fully. It is better to take a tour guide if you are visiting here for the first time.The fort also offers some stunning views of the city from its top. One can also take a lift to the top (to avoide walking) at extra cost. The ticket rates of 200 Rs seem to be slightly on the higher side.

Review №67

Cleanliness, maintained....Highest peak of Jodhpur to view whole cityBut we are not allowed to visit half of the fort

Review №69

Its a good fort to visit once. Though the entry ticket ₹200 per visitor is slightly high. I would recommend the visit highly if the ticket price is half. It can be skipped by those not interested in paintings and royal lust for show off.

This old palace has bags of Indian character.. well worth the steep climb from the old town, it’s faded glories remind you of a bygone age

Review №76

This place is just amazing. The fort is properly maintained. The historical importance that it gives is way too much surreal. One can sit there for hours appreciating the fort, its the significance and the view from the top of the fort. It should be on your checklist if you are into exploring historical places.

Maharaja Gaj Singhji to make the fort come alive for visitors.Today Mehrangarh Museum has a unique importance as a repository of the artistic and cultural history of the large area of the central Rajasthan, Marwar-Jodhpur, ruled by the Rathore dynasty.The Museum displays one of the most important and best preserved collections of fine and applied arts from the Mughal period of Indian history, during which the Rathore rulers of Jodhpur maintained close links with the Mughal Emperors.

Decent place to visit in morning or evening. But not during heavy sunny day. The sun will just burn like hell. The Palace is a decent display of Indias rich heritage and culture. The way it has been through time and seen fair share of battles can be seen.

We had a brilliant visit at the fort. In addition to the spectacular sights of the fort - the art and the shop inside are wonderful. The miniature paintings artist school sell their own paintings at the shop as well.The musicians at the fort are very good - do remember to tip them generously.Finally if you are the adventurous type - the zip lining is fantastic. The staff are professional and very kind. They let us pause and make videos wherever we wanted (not while zip lining). Also while ziplining you get to see the spot where Bruce Wayne emerges from the cave in Dark Knight Rises (in case this was a spoiler for you - it’s been 8 years since the movie came out - that makes it your fault, not mine)

Incredible India..! 🇮🇳If you are in Jodhpur then visit this place once.The complex is located on a hilltop around 122 metres above.and was constructed circa 1459 by Rajput ruler Rao Jodha.About This gallery displays one of the most important and best-preserved collections of fine and applied arts of the Mughal period of Indian history, during which the Rathore rulers of Jodhpur maintained close links with the Mughal emperors. It also has the remains of Emperor Akbar.🗡🗡🗡

Just loved this place. One of the most clean and well maintained fort I have visited. A majestic site from outside and as beautiful from inside. The entry fee is 150 per pax (100 for senior citizens, students) and hiring a guide will help you understand the history of this fort. Overall can be covered within 2 hours.

Its the most maintained fort of Rajasthan. Though hiring guide is recommended but unlike other forts guide charges here are expensive and overall not worth it. Apart from that its a must visit when in Jodhpur.
