Known for its large green stretches, elegant architecture, and royal cenotaphs, Jodhpur’s Mandore Garden is indeed a beautiful place to look at. The Mandore Garden, which was once the ruling seat of the Pratihara dynasty, was situated just 9 kilometers away from Jodhpur. The garden belongs to a larger Mehrangarh fort and is home to a well-known Hall of Heroes and the temple of 300 million Gods. The garden is also equipped with an Objects & Old Items Government Museum.
The most impressive characteristics of the landscape are the exquisite cenotaphs or ‘deals’ scattered throughout the Mandore Gardens. Surely the one who belongs to Maharaja Ajit Singh is the most beautiful and famous of these cenotaphs. Within the garden, its structures are undoubtedly its most striking feature, for example, the Hall of Heroes, with 16 warriors from one rock.
Mandore Gardens, such as auto cars or private taxis, is easily accessible by local transportation in Jodhpur. The gardens are still open every day from 9:00 to 22:00. The entrance to the park, however, costs about INR 50 ($0.78) per person during the visit to the museum.
