The Forts of India, stand as befitting 'monuments' to the pride, courage and chivalry of the rulers and people of India who relentlessly strove against invading armies to preserve their freedom and to keep alive their fait and their culture. The historic fort of Jodhpur was founded by Rao Jodha in the year 1459 AD: who shifted his capitol from Mandore to present day Jaodhpur. The Fort stands out magnificently on an isolated rock about 400 feet above the city. It is the finest example of beautiful architecture, which can rightly be described as 'Poetry in Stone'.
