While entering the fort and have the ticket..few step forward bring one to this gate//the audio guide pit stop#2.. a Royal Entrance..jai pole..

Jai Pol meaning, the 'gate of victory was constructed by Maharaja Man Singh, the King of Marwar in 1806 to celebrate the triumph of Marwar over the arch rival kingdoms of Jaipur and Bikaner. Located at a distance of about 5 km from Jodhpur city, it is one of the historic structure and the most famous of the seven gates present in the imposing Mehrangarh Fort. Marks made by cannon balls during old battle are still visible on the walls near the gate.
Jai Pol is a landmark, which speaks of Jodhpur's action-packed history. Owing to its significance and traditional architecture, the gateway is a suitable backdrop for clicking some beautiful snapshots.

A part of the historical Mehrangarh Fort in Jodhpur, Jai Pol is a massive gateway, constructed as a victory memorial. This gate is one of the seven entrances of the impressive citadel that is set atop a hillock. Maharaja Man Singh, the former king of Marwar, built this gate in 1806. The reason behind the construction of this gate was commemorating the triumph of Marwar against rival dynasties of Bikaner and Jaipur.

Incorporating elements of traditional Rajasthani architecture, this imposing structure looks magnificent. Even today, cannon ball scars formed during the battle can be seen near its walls, which are testimony of Jodhpur's eventful history.

At the entrance is a canopy which is a memorial to a soldier. There are also some lovely paintings near the entrance.

This is one of seven defensive gates of Mehrangarh Fort and was built in 1806 by Maharaja Singh to celebrate victory over the rival kingdoms of Jaipur and Bikanar. The delicious recently redecorated murals by the gate depict all the major dirties. Fabulous.

"Jai Pol" or "Gate of Victory" is the main entrance of iconic Jodhpur's "Mehrangarh Fort" today! This massive gate was built in 1806 by Maharajah Man Sing commemorating the triumph of his troops against the armies of neighboring Bikaner and Jaipur Kingdoms. "Jai Pol" is one of the seven defensive gates of "Mehrangarh Fort" and was built according to the characteristics of Rajasthani architectural style. A real landmark! Enjoy!

Jai Pol is the entrance gate to the main Mehrangarh fort. The Mehrangarh fort is well worth a visit and definitely recommend having an audio tour. An audio tour is 500 RS and very interesting. By audio stop no 32 there is a chance to do free meditation. DO IT!!
