Mandore Overview

Ranked 6 of 31 sightseeing in Jodhpur

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.

Mandore Gardens

Mandore Gardens located about 7km away from main city.. A beautiful garden with very nice temples.. There is no entry fee.. Though park is not very well maintained and bit shabby still its a worth going place as its a historic place which was used for cremation of royal family persons and beautiful temples and their unique design & architecture.Also there are lots of monkeys beware of them.Good picnic point for family.. Outside park there would be many roadside snacks.. But truly not hygienic.Overall a place should be visited once during stay in Jodhpur!!

This place had a importance in Indian mythology

This place had a importance in Indian mythology. This place is related to Ravana. But this place is so dirty and stinky that I would not recommend anybody to visit. Moreover mischievous monkeys will make your life a hell. Not too much to see here just like a normal view point which will be included by your sightseeing tour operator.

The temple structures are phenomenal

It is a gem worthy of its place as a must visit monument. It is the Indian equivalent of mini Angkor Wat. Jokes apart the temple structures are phenomenal. It is a different feeling. Worth a visit. Aside it is ill maintained and the government and other agencies should do something to protect this place. There is muck and filth and no maintenance.

It's a joggers park for the local guys

Yes, I come here often. It has nature, Trees, Rocks, Ponds, and specially Monkeys. At 1600 - 1700 hrs. You might feel dominated by our lookalikes creatures. Best place for a picnic, get together. This place has some ancient values. Easy transport and minimal fee.

Rocky mountain and classic architecture

This is the 2nd best place that Jodhpur can offer, temples rocks trees etc make this place a very beautiful place. This place has lots of monkeys and is nice for travelling alone, some views at this place are really awesome. Do go to this place if you visit Jodhpur, this place has a very small entry fees which is nothing as compared to view it offers.

Beautiful garden and good to walk

If you love monkeys, visit this place, again this garden is the sasural of Mandodari, Ravana's wife. Beautiful gardens, good place for walk and family picnic.

Nicely constructed but an average place

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.
