    Beautiful scenic must visit fort
    A beautiful and wonderful place to visit in Jodhpur. Recommended with a guide or else you would miss the entire charm of the place. Ticket cost is INR 250 inclusive of the lift which takes you to the 12th floor. Guide charges are INR 500. A private property very well maintained by the Maharaja himself. Very clean and the guards at the entry make sure you don't carry anything to litter in the fort. Has must visit blocks, rooms, display pieces, of swords, jewellery, miniature paintings, cradles of royal children, sheesh mahal, moti Mahal etc has everything the Maharaja clan used. It has beautiful crafted sandstone and pop carvings. One of the most beautiful forts in the country. It has 15 floors. Guide took us by lift to the 12th floor first then we went up to 15th floor and climbed back to the exit. Has a Meena bazaar, craft bazaar and small snack shop inside. Beautiful scenic view from the fort walls. One can see the Blue city houses, Umaid bhawan, Jaswanthda etc from here. Must visit place! Just loved it!

    Mesmerizing View
    Such a breathtaking view from the fort side. A very good sight seeing was available from the fort sight to the blue City. Unlimited display options were there. In India, it is the only fort where you have access towards all antiques ornaments, Maharaj's & Maharani's Poshak, equipments, etc A beautiful detailing of the architecture.

    Amazing 🤩
    Very well maintained place. There is a museum and 3 to 4 temples inside. Around an hour in this place, the staff are very polite and helpful. The ticket costs around 200 rupees but worth the visit. The fort opens at around 9 am. We were pleasantly surprised by the music as well in this place. Good to go 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

    Beautiful Fort
    Great tour of the fort with a knowledgable guide who took us through the optimal route and explained the main attractions of the fort. It is well worth to take the govt. appointed guides who will make your tour of the fort that much more fulfilling with their tidbits of information. Several uniquely decorated rooms apart from the Sheesh Mahal, definitely worth the time and the ticket price. If the fort authorities perform some restoration work on the balconies and courtyards it would be even more breathtaking to see in its original colour and glory.

    Magnificent Fort
    Fort is truly magnificent in imagination, execution, foresightedness of erstwhile rulers. Takes about 1-2hrs to do justice to one’s trip to Jodhpur. But for this attraction there’s really nothing worth one’s time in Jodhpur. Wish more wheel chair facilities, personnel to attend to differently abled and senior citizens exist. Ticket counter can be better organised. Usual swarming of guides soliciting the business, hangs around the counters. Cost effective cafe would be better in the premises. Prepaid Tuk Tuk counters and cab counters would be required. Overall, the only reason to visit Jodhpur.

    Must visit attraction in Jodhpur.
    must visit place of Jodhpur. It’s astonishingly beautiful. The fort is awesome and speaks about its golden time. You need atleast 3 hours to cover all the major points. Lots of things to see here. The ticket price is 200/- per person. Totally worth the price. The carvings made on the jodhpuri stone are simply mind-blowing. The jharokhaa for queens, meeting halls, kings bedroom, small museum are worth to watch. At the backyard there is garden, temple and lots of canons are placed there. You can enjoy the blue city view from the top of the fort. Please do take a guide, the guide provides good history about the fort. The guides are government certified.

Nice place to see ancient culture. It's a private fort still owned by Jodhpur King but open to the public. You can see many tops on top of fort.
