The Fort Pokaran

Traveller (148)
Room & Suite (42)
Pool & Beach (10)


recognize every Thakur of Pokaran as of the first honour in The Darbar (the court) of the state Marwar- Jodhpur. Surrounded with rocky, sandy and five salt ranges, POKARAN means “the place of five mirages”.Fort Pokaran stands on ancient trade route that carried salt, silk and spices to Persia and beyond. Instead of winding caravans of the past, it now has trains, buses and cars. The fort now attracts travellers to stay betwixt the glorious history where each stone speaks out volumes of the past. It is en route both from Jodhpur to Jaislamer and Bikaner to Jaislamer. It indeed makes an ideal break and offers extended traditional hospitality, which was once offered to Humayun; the Mughal Emperor in the 16th century and later to his great grandson Akbar `II; son of the last Mughal Emperor; Aurangzeb. The present Thakur Nagendra Singh Pokaran and his wife Thakurani Yashwant Kumari Pokaran have opened the imperial gates of the stately fort to proffer the traveller a feel of royalty.

Friendly staff, nice clean rooms, good local cuisine at the restaurant. What better place to stop for the night than a fort and have it all for yourself. Of course there are tourist in the afternoon and in the morning, but the night is totally quiet.

Review collected in partnership with this hotel
Worst meal I’ve had In India in 18 visits. Lunch considered of peas., carrots and cabbage in addition to a chicken i wouldn’t touch and tasteless soup. They should be ashamed of themselves. Indian hospitality is usually quite marvelous. This was insulting.

"The only 3/4 star hotel in Pokhran"
"Prefer ground level rooms"
"Take the pool side rooms, and not the semi-pvt area rooms."
"Ground floor rooms are smaller. Best rooms are the one that open towards the garden. The top room nice for privacy and a great view."
