Chokelao Bagh

Chokelao Bagh

Visit the Chokhelao garden which sits at the foot of the Mehrangarh Fort. This over two hundred year old garden has recently been restored, complete with the scents, sounds and textures of a garden of eighteenth century Marwar.


The garden today, as in the past, is truly a celebration of nature as it captures the changing colors of the seasons in the upper terrace of flower beds. It is equally magical for night viewing when the Mehtab Bagh or moonlight garden laid out in the lower terrace comes alive with the white flowers of chandni (Tabernaemontana coronaria) and the sweet smelling kamini (Maurya exotia). While paintings capture the activities in the garden in the form of music and dance performances in pavilions and terraces within the garden, romantic interludes in the shade of trees of the orchard area, holding durbans on platform under colourful awnings, the garden today houses a restaurant in the upper
most terrace, which enjoys the spectacular view of the garden and the ramparts of the city of Jodhpur beyond. Visit this gem of a garden and carry back the sensuous experience of eighteenth century Rajput garden.

Entry Fee for All Guests:  ₹ 30 per guest
