Home | Royal Tents, Mehrangarh Fort, Jodhpur | |
Jodha's fortress was 'Chao Burja' – a fort with four Bastions. The extremities of the original fortress fall within the limit of the second gate today. Of Jodha's time itself, very little remains, the fort expanded beyond his outer gates within fifty years of his death but the spot where this gate stood is known as " Rao Jodhaji Ka Falsa" ( Jodha's outer limit of the boundary). In its Janampatri the fort is named Chintamani, after the Mythological gem worn by lord Ram which supposedly frees the owner of all worldly worry. Chintamani gave way to Mordhwaj, the flag of the peocock, presumably because the forts outer parameter suggests the fan like tail of a dancing peacock, It is at some point after this that the name Mehrangarh began to appear in chronicles and poems. "Mehr" is a Rajasthani word for the sun and it is not at all unlikely that the Suryavanshi Rathores would name their first citadel in their mythological ancestor's honour.
