It's Inception
Mehrangarh Fort in Jodhpur In 1459 AD, Rao Jodha, chief of Rathore clan of Rajputs, laid the foundation of Jodhpur. A high stone wall protects the well-fortified city. The wall is nearly 10km in length and has eight gates facing various directions. The city lies at the foot of the hills. The clear distinction between the old and the new city is visible from the ramparts of the fort.

The city is situated at the edge of the Thar Desert with Jaisalmer on its west, Barmar, Jalor and Pali on its south, Bikaner on its north, and Nagaur on the eastern side. Home of the Rathores, this awesome princely state of Rajasthan is a doorway to the land of sand dunes and shrubs, rocky terrain and thorny trees.
