The construction of this magnificent structure was started by Rao Jodha, but completed several centuries after the king’s rule ended.

On a family vacation, tourists can visit the picturesque Ranisar and Padmasar Lakes, enjoy zip-lining, take a stroll through Chokelao Bagh, and explore the museum within Mehrangarh Fort.
This is situated at the highest point of Jodhpur. It was built in 1929 and stands just as strong today as it did at the time of its construction. While all the other Jodhpur forts have been opened to the public, part of Umaid Bhawan is still used by the royal family as its residence. This means you can see the best of the fort in the form of the Taj Museum. Models of vintage cars and an enviable clockwork collection are also instances of Jodhpur sightseeing that you mustn’t miss.
The lush Mandore Gardens will give you a sneak peek into the world of the royals. These gardens are home to temples, a ‘Hall of Heroes’, and a government museum that boasts of a range of ancient artefacts.
