AboutRao Jodha Desert Rock Park lies at the foot of Mehrangarh Fort in Jodhpur city, Rajasthan's iconic and best known fort. The Park extends across 70 hectares - about 200 acres - of rocky land surrounding the fort. Rao Jodha Desert Rock Park was created in 2006 to try
and restore the natural ecology of a large, rocky wasteland next to Mehrangarh Fort in Jodhpur. It had suffered years of neglect and was overrun by baavlia (Prosopis juliflora), an invasive, thorny shrub introduced from central America almost a century ago. The challenge was to eradicate the baavlia and create a suitable home for native rock-l oving plants that we would bring back from the desert.
