Jai Pol, located in a hill at a distance of about 5 km from Jodhpur city, is one of the historic structures present in the magnificent Mehrangarh Fort in Jodhpur. The meaning of Jai Pol is, the 'gate of victory' and it is the most famous of the seven gates present in the imposing fort.
Jai Pol was constructed in 1806 by, the then ruler of Marwar, Maharaja Man Singh. This gate was built to celebrate the triumph of Marwar over the arch rival kingdoms of Jaipur and Bikaner. The scars made by the cannon balls during the old battle can still be seen on the walls near the gate.
