Rao Jodha Desert Rock Park lies at the foot of Mehrangarh Fort in Jodhpur city, Rajasthan’s iconic and best known fort. The Park extends across 70 hectares-about 200 acres-of rocky land surrounding the fort. You can enter the park from Visitors Centre 800 meters from the main Fort Gate. You can also walk across the Park starting closer to the Fort or other points of entry.

Rao Jodha Desert Rock Park was created in 2006 to try and restore the natural ecology of a large, rocky wasteland next to Mehrangarh Fort in Jodhpur. It had suffered years of neglect and was overrun by baavlia (Prosopis juliflora), an invasive, thorny shrub introduced from central America almost a century ago. The challenge was to eradicate the baavlia and create a suitable home for native rock-loving plants that we would bring back from the desert.
