About Jaswant Thada

Jaswant Thada is a monument in Jodhpur that was built by Maharaja Sardar Singh 1899 in memory of his father Maharaja Jaswant Singh II. The cenotaph is also the burial ground for rulers of Mewar. A gorgeous milky white marble memorial offers a glimpse of yesteryears and a rich taste that the Rajput rulers possessed. Extremely thin and well polished, the artwork also speaks highly of the craftsmen who carved out the gazebos and the lattice screens of the structure. When the sun glows, the marbles reflect the light and appear to be illuminating. There are other cenotaphs within the same ground along with a lovely and well maintained tiered garden and a lake. Portraits of the rulers of Jodhpur are displayed in the cenotaph of Maharaja Jaswant Singh. Some of them date back to the 13th century. For those who want to take a break from the busy city life, this spot offers a quiet retreat. View from this location also offers a treat to the eyes, as one can see the Mehrangarh Fort and the city skyline. For photography enthusiasts, cameras are allowed inside but with a fee. It’s a monument worth visiting when you are in Jodhpur or planning your trip across Rajasthan.
