The royal apartments of the Mehrangarh Fort now form part of an outstanding museum which was one of the most impressive I visited in India. Take the audio tour which is included in the admission as it one of the best.

The Mehrangarh Museum Trust was started in March 1972 by His Highness The Maharaja Gaj Singh II with the principal objective of setting up a world class museum in Jodhpur. It was intended that this museum eventually house and display the Maharaja's substantial collections; of miniature paintings, portraits, books and manuscripts, weapons, textiles and tents, elephant howdahs and palanquins, and various objets' d art.
