and visit Mehrangarh Fort, Mehrangarh Fort was founded
in 15th century by the Rathore Rajputs when they shifted
their capital from nearby Mandore to Jodhpur. Mehrangarh
appears to rise from bluff-coloured sandstone hill itself,
so well built into the base that it is difficult to
tell where the hill ends and the walls begin. It is
approached by a series of seven gateways set at an angle
so that armies could not charge them with any success.
Pass the gates, the fort-palace takes one's breath away
. Across from huge courtyards are the set wings of palatial
apartments that have been built over five centuries
of bristling history. Also visit the Jaswant Thada,
located half way up the interminably long road that
climbs onwards to the fort, is the traditional cremation
ground of the rulers of Jodhpur. Taking pride of place
amongst the ornamental gardens and chattris is the fabulous
white marble memorial to Jaswant Singh II, built in

are relatively simpler. Inside the main hall are royal
portraits and other possessions. Night stay in Jodhpur.
