Mandore is located at a distance of 9 km from Jodhpur City. Capital of Marwar before the establishment of Jodhpur, it was founded in the 6th century. After a marriage alliance between a princess of the original founders, the Pratiharas, and the Rathore Rajah, Rao Chandor, the site was passed to the Rathore Rajputs in 1381. Mandore Gardens with their high rock terraces are the prominent attractions of the site. In the gardens, there are chhatris  (cenotaphs) of the Rathore rulers.

The Cenotaph of Maharajah Dhiraj Ajit Singh, an attraction of this site is adorned with carved elephants. The edifice is also embellished with amalake (disk-shaped flourishes with fluted edges), a pillared fore chamber with fine sculpture. Octagonal pavilion with a vast dome and huge pillars, 17th century Chhatri of Maharajah Dhiraj Jaswant Singh, is located opposite the staircases leading up the third storey.

Highly symmetrical, this structure contains a gallery supported by pillars and sculptures of Krishna and the gopies (milkmaids). Boundary of the site also contains a small government museum. The site also comprises 'Hall of Heroes', having 15 figures carved out of a rock wall. These structures depict Hindu deities or local Rajput heroes on horseback. Figures of deities and spirits form the Shrine of 33 Crore Gods.

"Nicely constructed but an average place"

  • 4.50/7
  • Posted Apr 17, 2015
Nicely constructed Chhatris in a large garden. After all that I had seen in Rajasthan, this was average. Maybe, would have rated it better, this been the first place I had visited in Rajasthan. Visit on the way to or fro between Jodhpur and Jaisalmer.

"Must visit place"

  • 6.00/7
  • Posted Apr 14, 2015
It's fully awesome place, there is a big waterfall zone and many monkeys are there on roofs of little stones and a fun zone for children and adults too like driving cars and swimming pool and garden etc. We should visit this place during daytime to enjoy it because it's the best time for this.

"Cool Garden, fun activities"

  • 5.00/7
  • Posted Aug 31, 2014
The garden is very awesome. It is also a historical place as it is related to RAVAN. Here you would find lot of monkeys and there are very nice gardens. There is also a fun world inside it, which is very good. It has many games and rides. It is a good place to visit.
