‘Rao Jodha Desert Rock Park’ open for tourist now!

Rao Jodha Desert Rock Park, is an ecological restoration project being carried out by Mehrangarh Museum Trust, Jodhpur. It was  created in 2006 to try to restore the natural ecology of a large, rocky wasteland next to Mehrangarh Fort.

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.

The place  is now open for tourists visiting Jodhpur.
