The Mehrangarh Museum Trust (MMT) was established in 1972 by His Highness Maharaja Gaj Singh II of Jodhpur, with the objective of creating a museum of international standard in Jodhpur.
Many new dimensions and activities have been added in the intervening years, including patronage of art, music, and local handicrafts, study and research, and the establishment of the ICI Conservation Centre. The Museum has participated in many international exhibitions, including the Garden & Cosmos: The Royal Paintings of Jodhpur exhibit which toured to major museums in the U.S., U.K., and Australia in 2008-2010.
Other projects include the continuous restoration of Mehrangarh Fort, the revitalization of the royal cenotaphs at Jaswant Thada, and the restoration of traditional water bodies and city walls. The Trust has also restored the 12th century Fort of Ahichhatragarh at Nagaur, work which has been honoured by the UNESCO-ASIA PACIFIC Award for Excellence.
