Jaswant Thada Overview

Ranked 3 of 31 sightseeing in Jodhpur

Jaswant Thada was built by Sardar Singh in 1899 in memory of Maharajah Jaswant Singh II. An architectural landmark, it is a white marble memorial. This 19th century royal cenotaph built in commemoration of Maharajah Jaswant Singh II, the 33rd Rathore ruler of Jodhpur, is made out of intricately carved sheets of marble.

When the sun's rays fall across their surface, these thin and polished stones emit a warm glow. Carved gazebos, a beautiful multi-tiered garden, and a small lake are also located within this cenotaph. Royal crematorium and three other cenotaphs are also located at this site. On the cenotaph, there is a marble jali work.

From the terrace in front of the cenotaph, tourists can get an aerial view of the destination. Portraits of the rulers and Maharajahs of Jodhpur are displayed on the cenotaph of Maharajah Jaswant Singh. Built like a temple, the Thada can be reached by passing through a rocky hill.

Cenotaph built for Raja Jaswant singh

Jaswant thada: located a kilometer away from Mehrangarh fort, this is a cenotaph built for raja jaswant singh II. You will have to walk down a rocky road to reach this place. Cenotaph is derived from a Greek origin meaning kenos (empty) taph (tomb). This place is rightly and famously called the Taj Mahal of marwar. The reason for it is that it has got amazingly awesome carvings on very thin sheets of marbles giving it the feel of a temple. The structure looks beautiful when rays of sun strike its milky white marble. Portraits of the Maharajas of Jodhpur adorn the walls of the memorial. In the front are minutely and beautifully carved gazebos, garden and a small lake.Entry fees : rs 15 for Indian nationals and rs 30 for foreigners. Camera and videography rs 50 extra.

Quiet Haven

The queen's tribute to her husband, the mausoleum of Raja Jaswant Singh is a quiet haven. Wonder in marble, nice place to rest for a while between the trees before heading to the fort. Infact, you get the best views of the fort from here.
