See how the Rathores lived
Once you’re inside Mehrangarh Fort you need to swing by Mehrangarh Museum. While admission to the fort is free, there is a fee to enter the museum (₹ 600 for foreigners), but it’s so worth it because we’re talking about the palace where the Rathores (the rulers of Jodhpur) once lived.
The museum is divided into galleries showcasing various artefacts like elephant howdahs (seats that would have been used to ride elephants), palanquins (covered day beds used to transport the nobility), as well as paintings, turbans, textiles, armour and wood crafts.
It’s a fascinating place, but it also gets packed, so the earlier you get there, the better.
