Mega Fort! Feb 02, 2016
Mehrangarh Fort in Jodphur Rajasthan is one of the largest fort in India. It was built around 1460 by Rao Jodha, the same Rathore ruler who founded the city of Jophur.

The Mehrangarh Fort is built in the centre of the city of Jodphur standing tall and mighty on top of a hill at 150 metres above the city. Spreading 5 kilometres wide with walls as high as 36 metres high, this fort provides an amazing panaromic view of the entire city.

There are 7 entry gates leading to this amazing fort with each gate depicting the battles fought during the royal days and within it are several palaces, extensive courtyards and a museum with the richest collection in all of Rajasthan. It is a show of how massively wealthy and grand life was during the royal era.

This is by far, my favourite fort during this trip to Rajasthan.

Visit to Mehrangarh Fort Jodhpur Apr 25, 2016
Mehrangarh Fort doesn’t need any introduction for those who have been to Jodhpur. Mehrangarh Fort is one among the largest fort in India and the only one which is managed by a private trust. The fort is most popular tourist attraction in Jodhpur city.

Mehrangarh Fort was built around 1460 by Rao Jodha. Thick walls were imposed around the fort which it stands at 125m above the city. Mehrangarh is a massive hilltop castle situated at a rocky site filled with gardens, huge walls, lakes, battlements & moats. The fort also comprises of ornamented private residences, balconies, arched galleries, misleading passageways and stairs.

The views of the blue city from the top of Mehrangarh Fort are mesmerizing and tourists never miss on this wonderful experience. There is tempting question which comes in the mind of people visiting Jodhpur that why there are blue painted houses around the fort palace.

There are many entertaining and adventure activities at the fort which visitor loves to do. Aerial zip line adventure activity, camel riding, Puppet show are some of activities which visitors to the fort can try out.

The Flying Fox team conducts zip tour at the fort. The zip tour includes 5 zip lines which starts from the top of the fort, fly over the Rao Jodha Desert Rock Park, lakes and ends back to the fort. The whole zip tours takes around 90 minutes to do. During the zip tour, marvelous views of fort & the blue city are witnessed.

The lighting of the fort walls from the outside in the late evening is excellent and creates a lovely image.
