Jai Pol Travel

Jai Pol or Jaya Pol (which means “the gate of victory”) is one of the historic structures in the magnificent Fort Mehrangarh in Jodhpur. It is the most famous of the seven gates in the imposing fort. It is situated in a hill about 5 km from Jodhpur city.

Jai Pol is constructed in 1806, by Maharaja Man Singh, the then ruler of the kingdom of Marwar. This gate is constructed to celebrate the victory of Marwar over the neighbouring rival kingdoms of Jaipur and Bikaner after fierce battles. In the wall near the gate, scars made by cannon balls from the old battle can still be seen.
