  • A bit run down but worth the visit. Wish the local govt would put some money and energy in as it could be a huge tourist attraction.  more »
  • The place has a good garden Beautiful temples but is facing the apathy of government and the people. It is not at all maintained and the fountains have become swamps, gardens are full of weeds and loo...  more »
  • I guess some times of the day are better than others to find lots of monkeys here. We arrived around noon, and saw a group of 6 or 7 that quickly scampered away. Very disappointing. Be mindful of tout...  more »

  • Beautiful garden with a strong historical touch. It houses beautiful flowers, prominently lotus, and you can spot some rare beautiful birds as well. The first half is not that clean but as you get closer to the main part of the garden it is very clean. There is a temple and museum as well inside the garden. Must visit if u in Jodhpur. The Garden has free entry for all.
  • A little known architectural jewel on the outskirts of Jodhpur. Mandore (मंडोर) formerly known as Mandavyapur (मांडव्यापुर) was the capital of the Kingdom of Marwar in early medieval times. The place is associated as the birthplace of Mandodari the queen of Ravana from the Ramayana. A fort seems to have existed in the location from as early as the 8th Century CE. Even after the capital shifted to Jodhpur in the 15th Century in the reign of Rao Jodha, Mandore remained important as the place for royal last rites and ancestor worship. Several cenotaphs stylised as temples exist at the cremation site of the kings of Marwar from the 16th Century onwards. The cenotaphs are richly decorated, the most lavish being that of Maharawal Ajit Singhji from the early 18th Century. The place also has a small government museum in the Zanana Bagh .
  • There only Ganesh ji temple and Shiv ji temple.. No extra ordinary structure construction
  • Mandore (Old name "Mandavyapur") has many temples and memorials, cenotaphs of many rulers of Jodhpur state like Maharaja Ajit Singh, the monument was built in 1793 Ravan's Chauri (The Marriage place) is at Mandore. Ravan's wife Mandodari was married here. Most of I visit here is the Temple of Brahmmani Mata. Hall of Heroes Devtaon ki Saal & Hindu statues of local gods & popular folk heroes of the region. It contains 16 figures carved out of a single rock. The Temple of Kala (Black) and Gora (White) Bheruji (The wild god, a form of Shiva) is worshipped here.
  • Mandor garden is really get a good experience Here's Beauty of garden and temples Mandor is home of ravan's wife Here is a small fort.but this fort are special.when we see this fort in inside it's look turned.the top is our floor and floor is our top.
