Mehrangarh Fort in Jodhpur
The Mehrangarh Fort in Jodhpur is one of India’s most magnificent and impressive buildings. The fort is built on top of a steep sided hill which rises 125 metres from an otherwise flat plain.The walls of the fort are another 36 metres high and 21 metres wide. The fort covers an area of 5 square kilometres and contains a number of palaces and temples featuring intricate carvings in their stone exteriors.
The Mehrangarh Fort also now houses a large and well stocked museum with artefacts related to the fort and the people who lived there. The Mehrangarh Fort is open every day from 09:00 to 17:00 and entry for foreign visitors costs 400 INR. We recommend staying until at least 15:30 when several hundred eagles come to the temple to be feed from the top of a tower in the grounds of the fort.
The history Mehrangarh Fort is long and rich. Construction of the fort began in the early 15th Century, and the fort is one of only two of the many impressive hill top forts in Rajasthan which remains under the control of the family which built it.
There are many legends relating to the founding of the fort. According to one of the legends, the hill on which the fort was built was inhabited by a hermit who refused to relocate, until the Chief of the Rathore clan, the local ruler at the time, sought the help of a famous female warrior priestess, Karni Mata, to ask him to move. The hermit, so the legend goes, agreed to move but at the same time put a curse of drought on the town. In an attempt to appease the hermit a house and temple were built for him in the grounds of the temple. Jodhpur, however, still suffers regularly droughts which some superstitious residents attribute to the hermit’s curse.
