Perched atop a rocky promontory and overlooking the surrounding plains, Mehrangarh Fort and its towering walls rank among the most iconic landmarks in the country. Built in the 1450s by the rulers of the Marwar Kingdom, the fortress bears cannonball scars from the battles it saw in the following centuries. On your way up to the castle, you can marvel at the fortifications that rise 125 m (410 ft) above the city, sticking straight up from the hill's rock face. Explore the museum within to learn more about the fort's history and see an extensive collection of rare arms, armor, artwork, and other artifacts from the region. From the top of the battlements, lined with antique cannons, you'll get a sweeping view over the city and the landscape below. Make Mehrangarh Fort a part of your Jodhpur vacation plans using our Jodhpur trip planner.
