Mandore Garden

Location: Mandore, Rajasthan
Venue For: Marwar Festival
Attraction: Cenotaphs Of Jodhpur Rulers

Situated 9 kms to the north of Jodhpur, Mandore was the capital of Marwar prior to the foundation of Jodhpur standing on a plateau overlooking the present Mandore Gardens. The extensive gardens with high rock terraces make it a popular local attraction and a picnic spot.

The ruins of the original capital of Marwar, stand in lush, shady gardens and are entered via the Ajit Pole, the gate that was built in celebration of Ajit Singh’s victory over the Moghals in 1707 AD.

The gardens also contain the cenotaphs of Jodhpur rulers, and the largest and the finest of them all, the soaring memorial to Maharaja Ajit Singh. Here, one may find a captivating collection of cremation-site memorials, mostly 17th-18th century set amidst surprisingly green, clean and hassle-free gardens.

The highlight of the Mandore Gardens include the graphic Hall of Heroes, a rock wall with high relief, brightly painted depictions of local heroes such as Pabuji and Chamunda and crowded modern shrine of 30 crore gods.

Fairs in Rajasthan are mythological in nature, relating to gods and goddesses. They are even celebrated to commemorate the brave deeds of medieval heroes.

Mandore Gardens provide the perfect venue for The Marwar Festival, held in memory of the heroes of Rajasthan. The festival is celebrated in the Hindu month of Ashwin (Sept.-Oct.) in Jodhpur, the former capital of Marwar Province.
