Mandore Gardens

Mandore Gardens Review

Within the old Marwar capital at Mandore, these gardens house the exquisitely sculpted red-sandstone davals (memorials) to former rulers. The Hall of Heroes depicts 16 colorfully painted heroes and deities carved from a single piece of stone. The small museum on the grounds has sculptures from the 5th to the 9th centuries as well as ivory and lacquer work. It's definitely worth a visit here for the davals, but the gardens are not well maintained, and are no longer the picnic-spot destination they used to be.
