The Mehrangarh Fort was near invincible and therefore jodhpur was almost immune to enemy attacks though the Mughals and Marathas had their eye on this region. The history of jodhpur took a glorious turn when the Mughal Emperor Akbar became a political ally of jodhpur. During the British Raj, the state of jodhpur was the largest in Rajputana, by land area. jodhpur prospered under the British Raj. Its merchants, the Marwaris, flourished endlessly. They came to occupy a dominant position in trade throughout India. In 1947 India became independent and the state merged into the union of India. jodhpur became the second city of Rajasthan. The Rathores enjoyed good relations with all the Mughals, except Aurangzeb. Maharaja Jaswant Singh even supported Shahjahan in his struggle for succession. After Aurangzeb's death, Maharaja Ajit Singh drove out Mughals from Ajmer and added it to Marwar (now jodhpur). Under the reign of Maharaja Umed Singh, jodhpur grew into a fine modern city.
