Mehrangarh Fort, Jodhpur

4.7
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.

  • Yet, how does a business go about responding to online reviews? Do positive online reviews need to be responded to at all? How do you approach responding to a negative review? All these questions and more are covered here so you can leverage your online feedback to engage with consumers and grow your business. Review response is also a service that companies may offer to local businesses, as online reputation is a valuable aspect of marketing that a business can have a lot of control over if they get their strategy right. Having a strong reputation is a cornerstone of any business' digital presence, and helping businesses navigate the complex waters of reputation and online reviews is a great value add to other marketing services. We'll cover this in more detail below.
  • Worth visiting this place. The gallery inside the fort gives a glimpse of the lifestyle of Kings and Queens in those era. The fort is huge but you also have the option to take a lift (you have to book ticket for the same) which would save your time in walking till the top. However if you want to minutely explore the place then you can take the walking route. You also have the option of getting a tourist guide (recommended) to understand the place well.
  • The fort was incredible! We Loved walking around just taking photos. The audio guide was super informative. It took us about 2 hours to go through the audio tour. You can climb up to the fort via the backstreets, depending on which side you are on (we were on the clock tower side).
  • Visiting Mehrangarh fort was a great experience. It is probably the most well kept and equipped monument in India. Each area had a clear flow and story behind it. There were many actual artefacts on display here, which were well preserved and had detailed histories attached. My favourite part however, was the zip-line in the fort. It's a one of a kind experience that you won't get anywhere else in the world. Definitely a must do!
  • Magnificent Place. Words simply can't do justice to the awesomeness. Perfectly maintained. Audio Guide available ( single device can be shared with two people) Worth a visit highly recommended.
