Having read lots of negative reviews about Mandore Gardens being dirty and neglected, we almost didn't go. I'm so glad we changed our minds. Yes, there is renovation work going on but the architecture and the flowers are beautiful and the sheer scale of the site is mindblowing. Highly recommended.

I went to Shri Mandore Bheruji. The temple is mostly visited by the Oswal community for seeking blessings after performing the ritual of Mundan (the tonsure) and Jat (Jay-ti or Jwar) rituals, at Osiya Mandir, Gora Bheruji or Kala Bheruji; it varies from family to family. It is great place to go.

It is said that this temple is a must visit for devotees who are coming after visiting osian temple for the blessings.
The temple is located inside a famous mandore garden which is equally beautiful.
The garden has huge concentration of monkeys. They are generally not harmful if not teased with.

This temple is unique in its own way. Visiting it gave us a positive aura. It was crowded even at late night. People believe Shri Beruji has special significance. Some Devotees were burning the remaining coconut after eating in a little campfire which is kept burning in the temple premises. They said even the prashad should not be dishonoured, so instead of taking it home it has to be burned there itself. Some people were collecting ashes of those coconuts to be carried home. Quite an unusual custom followed by the locals.

The temple section of the Mandore gardens are dirty with people dump their incense stick packets, ploybags, and other things around as if it is a garbage place. Needs to be managed properly.

Mandore town is situated around 8 km from Jodhpur, Rajasthan, India. This is a historical place which have a beautiful garden and a Great & ancient temple of Lord Khetlaji. It is also a town of monkey's. In this you will find a real culture and civilization of Rajasthani people.

I highly recommend to visit this place, if you are near or in Jodhpur, Rajasthan India.

Mandore is an ancient town situated near Jodhpur of Rajasthan in India. The Mandorvas of Gurjar Partihar dynasty ruled this region during 6th century AD. This Mandore town was given as dowry to a Rathore clan of Rajputs for marrying a Gurjar Partihar girl.

There are several monuments in this historic town. Now what we see is the ruined Mandore fort, with broad walls of considerable dimension. It is built in several stages. Probably a long time ago it was a fine piece of architecture. There is a big destroyed temple, which is a highlight of the fort. We can witness finely carved botanical designs, birds, animals and planets on the outer wall of the temple. It is called 'Mandore gardens', for its charming collection of temples and memorials. The high rock terrace is interesting item to see. There are monuments of many rulers of the erstwhile princely state of Marwar including the prominent king Maharaja Ajit Singh. I have visited the government museum in this Mandore Gardens. It is called a ‘Hall of Heroes' plus a range of artefacts and statues in the museum. The next one is a big hall known as "The temple of 33 core Gods" which houses images of a variety of Hindu Gods.

Most of the members of Oswal community worship Bheruji and seek his blessing. They do offer their hairs by cleanly shaving their heads that is after performing the tonsure (mundan) and Jat (Jay-ti or Jwar) ritual at Osiya Mandir, Gora Bheru or Kala Bheru. This ceremony varies from family to family. We can see Gora Bheru inside the temple. On his left side we see Kala Bheru and on right side Ganesha. Pooja Samagri is available outside the temple.

The notable popular fairs and festivals are Rao Festival, Hariyali Amavasya, Naag Panchami and others.

Mandore Gardens is at about 9km to Jodhpur on way to Osiya. The garden is open from 8 AM to 8 PM.

Jodhpur can be reached by Air, Train and bus. There are many restaurants and eating-places where you can order for Indian, Chinese, Continental and Mughlai cuisine. You may taste the famous Kachouri (a snack eaten with chutney). If you love sweet eat laddoos, specially made to melt as soon as you put it into your mouth. You will love to drink buttermilk in tall glass, which is called as 'lassi', of which you may be familiar.

Jodhpur is a developed city as such you will find several Hotels to provide decent accommodation. If you are looking for economical or low budget accommodation doesn’t matter it is also easily available in Jodhpur.
