History of Jodhpur


History of Jodhpur RajasthanFounded by a Rathore chief, the city of Jodhpur took its name from its founder ruler- Rao Jodha in 1459 AD. The natural fortifications of the place were greatly enhanced by the construction of the highly barricaded Meherangarh Fort that was virtually impregnable.

Jodhpur had friendly relations with Mughals, having entered into a matrimonial alliance with them but the friendly relations got soured when Jodhpur didn't support Aurangzeb in the Mughal war of succession and he captured the city on becoming the king of the Mughal Empire.

Ajit Singh restored Jodhpur to its former glory after the fall of Mughal Empire. The looming threat of Marathas was taken care by signing a treaty. After the fall of the Marathas, the ruling family of Jodhpur signed a treaty with the British. This arrangement continued till Jodhpur became a part of independent India.
