Mihir Garh - Jodhpur

Mihir garh or the Sunís fortress was founded in 2009 A.D, it is an indulgent experience that stands majestically to embrace the judicious traveller and shower upon him the well-known hospitality and diverse flavours of Marwar Ė The Desert region of Rajasthan. It is the latest venture of the Rohet Family which owns and operates in Rohetgarh a Luxury Heritage Hotel and Wilderness Camp a Luxury Desert Camp. The concept of converting historic forts and places into luxury accommodations isn't new in India. There are plenty of heritage hotels in the country that offer comfort in the lap of a rich history. However a fort that was built from scratch in a desert in Rajasthan just five years ago has surpassed them all when it comes to being extraordinary. It is a Mud Fort themed boutique hotel of 9 Luxury Suites (each suite with 1700 sq ft of private space) with numerous courtyards, a swimming pool and spa.
Atop a sacred sand dune in Rajasthan's Marwar region, Thar Desert's Mihir Garh fort, also called the fort of the sun, has been named the world's most extraordinary hotel by Lonely Planet. The Mihir Garh fort hotel, which is owned by Sidharth Singh, has been built to perfection. In fact, its owner describes it as a "realized dream". It took around 150 local craftsmen and carpenters two years to build the hotel's nine 1,700 sq ft luxury suites. According to Lonely Planet writer James Kay, "Few hotels are created without compromise, Mihir Garh is a rare example. This is not just a unique place to stay, it's a shrine to the artistic and architectural traditions of Rajashthan in general and Jodhpur in particular."
Architecture and Design:
This elegant structure finds its inspiration in the rural village architecture of Western Rajasthan, as can be seen with the tall mud walls, the slightly rounded corners, the numerous alcoves and the aesthetically conceived fireplaces. This fort indeed stands as a proud representative of all that its land is best known for: royalty, a robust culture and rustic charm. From its conception to its completion, every single workman involved in bringing Mihir Garh to life, hails from the region itself. Nothing has been outsourced. Instead, every nook and corner has been lovingly along with our very talented team. Mihir Garh is the haven where you can experience sheer lavishness amidst the wilderness of Thar.
Mihir garh is easily accessible by air, as it is situated about 40 km from the nearest airport at Jodhpur, a 45-minute drive through scenic countryside. It lies on the main highway from Jodhpur to Udaipur and on the way to the well-known marble temples at Ranakpur. Jodhpur can also be easily reached by rail.
In the vibrant state of Rajasthan, 55 kms south west of Jodhpur City, there exists a sand dune called ďMali Nathji ka DhoraĒ which is dedicated to the Warrior God. Mihir Garh is perched significantly upon this mound enriched by history and mythology and beautified by nature. The fort acts as an amphitheatre to the splendour of this land. Mihir Garh is easily accessible by both airport and railway station. From either, the fort is about an hourís drive through scenic countryside.
