Mandore Gardens are a beautiful tourist spot located a stones throw from the main city. The lush, verdant gardens are well-planned, with leafy trees that foster a pleasant and peaceful environment. You can spend a leisurely afternoon in the shade of these trees, while brushing up on the history of Mandore, which is steeped in royal occupation. Tourists can admire the dewals or cenotaphs, dating back to the 17th and 18th centuries, of Jodhpur's former rulers that are set in the landscaped lawns.


The most striking dewal by far is that of Maharaja Ajit Singh, the ruler of Marwar (1861-1901). The cenotaphs of the Maharani are set on a rocky outcrop over the hill. The dewals are made from red sandstone, with intricately carved pillars, wide corridors, tall spires and sculptures.

Near the cenotaphs is the hall of heroes that is dedicated to various deities and Rajput folk heroes. The statues of the deities and heroes have been carved out of rock and painted in bright colours. While here, don�t forget to explore the temple, known as the temple of 33 crore gods, with images of Hindu gods adorning the complex. You can also check out the Government Museum, which houses relics and artefacts significant to the area.
