Maṇḍor, the ancient capital of Mārwār, is situated at a distance of eight kms. from Jodhpur. Its old names were Maḍḍodara and Māṇḍavyapura durga. Kakkuka, the Pratīhāra ruler of this place, was a great patron of Jainism. He constructed a Jaina temple at Ghaṭiyālā.

The Śrāvakas of Maṇḍor built, and repaired temples of other places, and placed images in them. In 1311 A.D., Gosala with his brother and sons renovated the temple of Vimalavasahī at Ābū. In 1461 A.D., Sañjaka of Maṇḍor with the members of his family prepared Nandiśvara Paṭṭikā, and installed it during the reign of Chāchigadeva in the temple of Pārśvanātha at Jaisalmer through Jinacandrasūri. The Maṇḍovara-gotra of the Osavālas became famous after Maṇḍor. The Maṇḍora-gachchha, a branch of the Kharatara-gaccha, originated from this place in 1497 A.D.
