Mandore had been the capital of Marwar dynasty before Jodhpur. Mandore Gardens, with its unique high rock terrace, still is a prime attraction of tourists in Jodhpur. The garden is open from 8 am to 8 pm. The garden contains cenotaphs of former Marwar kings. Unlike normal cenotaphs in the region, the cenotaphs in Mandore are built like traditional Hindu temples. The cenotaphs are made in red sandstone and generally have four elegant storeys. These cenotaphs are surrounded by a beautifully landscaped garden. The garden also contains a ruined fort and palace.
