Jodhpur Rajputana has been in the middle of glory for years. The proof of which remains found in many places adjoining the town of Jodhpur within the sort of ancient buildings. there’s a historical place 9 kilometers from Jodhpur, which is named the Mandor Garden. the traditional name of Mandor was ‘Mandavpur’. Before Jodhpur, Mandore was the capital of the princely state of Jodhpur. Rao Jodha considered Mandore to be unsafe and built Mehrangarh Fort on Chidi Kut mountain within the name of security and settled Jodhpur in his name and made it the capital of Marwar. at the present, only the ruins of the Mandore fort remain, which are supported by the Buddhist style of architecture. during this fort, large stones were added with the assistance of no spices.
There are many worth seeing historical places around Jodhpur, during which Mandore is legendary for its architecture far and wide. The Mandore Garden is situated at a rather higher position on the rocky cliffs five miles north of the town of Jodhpur.
It is said that Mandore was the stronghold of the Parihar kings. For many years, the Parihar kings ruled the whole Marwar from here. After Chundaji Rathore married the Parihar princess, Mandore got them in dowry, since then this ancient capital of Parihar kings was ruled by Rathore rulers. Mandor has been the old capital of Marwar.
The locals here also believe that Mandor was Ravana’s in-law. Perhaps this place was named Mandore thanks to Ravana’s patrani being Mandodri. This thing is a prevalent sort of a legend here. But no concrete evidence exists of this.

These monuments are slightly different from the memorial sites of Rajput kings found throughout Rajasthan. Where other huge chhatris are constructed within the sort of samadhi at other places. At an equivalent time, the Rajput kings of Jodhpur didn’t build these mausoleum sites within the shape of an umbrella, inbuilt the form of an enormous temple on high platforms.
The mausoleum memorials of the Maharajas of Jodhpur are situated on high stone chairs during a single line from south to north within the central part of Mandor Uddhan, whose architecture is often seen in excellent coordination of Muslim architecture with Hindu architecture. While on one side the tomb of the kings is made within the shape of a temple on high stones, the tombstones of the queens are made within the sort of canopies. it’s worth seeing the carvings done on the stones here. Excellent specimens of sculpture are seen here. These tombstones are as big because the outside and are decorated the maximum amount from inside. Deeply carved domes, stone-carved pillars, and walls provide evidence of the art lovers of the time.
Among them, the monument of Maharaja Ajit Singh is that the largest. it had been made on Uddhan Rox. Despite this, there’s enough greenery here. so as to eliminate the uniformity of red stones, special care was taken of the Haryali here, that the canal was taken out from the center of Uddhan. Near the monuments are the remains of a canal equipped with fountains, watching them, it seems that when this canal starts from Nagadadi lake and involves the most door of Uddhan, it’ll look so beautiful then stylish. The Nagadadi lake was constructed by the Nagvans of Mandore, on which the dam was built during the rule of Maharaja Ajit Singh and Maharaja Abhay Singh.
