    Jaswant Thada: A Tranquil Marvel in Jodhpur
    Jaswant Thada is an architectural gem nestled in Jodhpur, Rajasthan. This serene monument boasts intricate white marble carvings and delicate lattice work, offering visitors a glimpse into the region's rich heritage. The cenotaphs inside the monument, dedicated to Marwar rulers, provide a poignant connection to the past. What truly makes Jaswant Thada stand out is the stunning view it offers of the Mehrangarh Fort and the city of Jodhpur from its garden surroundings. It's a serene and historical oasis that should be on every traveler's list when visiting Jodhpur.

    Serene and peaceful
    Serene beautiful place must visit when in Jodhpur. Guide needed to know the complete information to enjoy the serenity and importance of the place. Called the Taj Mahal of Jodhpur for 2 reasons, one made of same marble as the original Taj of Agra and built by the queen's in memory of the King after his death!! Just as the King built the original Taj Mahal in memory of the queen. Beautiful scenic view of the whole city..the Blue city Jodhpur. Very close to the Mehrangarh Fort. A artificial pond outside makes the place beautiful and enchanting. The architectural marvel has photos of all the ruler kings inside it. Ticket prices at INR 40 per person and guide charges INR 200.

    Peaceful, calm, beautiful sight seeing option for all. Beautiful windows, green doors and white marble building are so antique to watch. The surrounding is by a lake and all side greenery views. Must visit as it is near the Mehrangarh fort.

    Beautiful white marble cenotaph
    Beautiful white marble cenotaph built at the end of the nineteenth century in honor of Maharaja Jaswant Singh II. The cenotaph dominates the blue city with its white marble. If you go to visit the interior in the middle of the day, you will see that under the sun's rays, the marble walls are transparent with a beautiful play of light.

    Gem of Marwar
    Jaswant thada is rightfully called the Taj Mahal of Marwar. It is an exquisite marble monument dedicated to Maharaja Jaswant Singh II. It has intricately carved pillars, a dome and a chandelier. It is surrounded by landscaped gardens. It has paintings of Marwar kings. One can get a panoramic view of Mehrangarh fort from here. Since it is located near Mehrangarh fort, one can combine the visits to both these places

    A serene, calm monument you must visit at sundown.
    After the Fort, this is the next best monument in Jodhpur. Preferable view it at sundown. First, the visitors shall be less and secondly the golden evening glow on this building makes it look like a piece of jewellery. Basically a cenotaph, this building has several small structures around the main central one. A play of white marble and stone structures, varying in size depending on the importance and hierarchy of the person whose ashes it preserves. Spread over quite a large area, the serenity of the place is encapsulating. With good reason, it’s build away from the main noisy city. The setting sun plays wonders with the materials used, and the shadows are interesting. A beautiful monument to quieten you down after all the hustle and bustle you may have gone through, trying to navigate the city.

    Quiet Monument
    The Jaswant Thada is a cenotaph located near to the Meharangarh Fort. It was built by Maharaja Sardar Singh of Jodhpur State in 1899 in memory of his father, Maharaja Jaswant Singh II, and it serves as the cremation ground for the royal Rajput family of Marwar. The cenotaph is built out of intricately carved sheets of Makrana marble. The cenotaph's grounds feature carved gazebos, garden, and a small lake. The entry fee is Rs. 30 per pax. Inside, there is nothing much to explore. A quick visit while visiting the fort may be made.

    Taj Mahal of Marwar
    Jaswant Thada, a dazzling white marble cenotaph built in 1899, honours Maharaja Jaswant Singh II near Mehrangarh Fort. Also Known as the "Taj Mahal of Marwar," it showcases Rajput architecture with intricate carvings that glow warmly in the sun. Inside, find memorials to Jodhpur's rulers and a museum with portraits offering a glimpse into the city's royal past. A serene lake, once used for royal cremations, now shelters ducks and adds to the peaceful atmosphere.

    Beautiful and tranquil
    Well worth a visit if going to the nearby fort. Great place for taking pictures and such a beautiful and tranquil location. It was very quiet when we visited which made the experience more serene. There were some traditional musicians playing which also added to the atmosphere. There are also some very clean toilets there if needed

You don't need to spend a lot of time here but because it's basically at the base of Mehrangah Fort, you basically go past it anyway. The grounds are beautifully maintained and the temple itself is really beautiful. The lake beside the temple is definitely worth a look, especially for keen birdwatchers like myself. you really only need up to an hour or less to visit but it's definitely worth a look.

We really enjoyed my vist here, we first stopped for a refreshment at the entrance as we were travelling 300+ Kms from Jasalmer,Sam & Sand Dunes. it was so nice feeling for my 2 yr old daughter to see fishes, ducks swimming and a bunch of birds flying over the tiny lake at the left side of the entrance and on enquiry it was known to us that some kawali parfirmance is about to start from 14 Feb 20 for which stage in middle of the lake and sitting arrangement around the lake was being carried out. Then on our walk up to the memorial, it was witnessed a man playing an instrument in very professional manner, my daughter also happily took a photo and offer him some money and she was feeling great as we have already crossed him but my daughter was still waving her hand.
I was fascinated to see the sunlight coming through the walls of the memorial to Maharaja Jaswant Singhji, it was cool and calm inside with paintings of previous Maharaja on the walls.
The memorial and its surrounding gardens and lake are beauitfully maintained. You will hardly need 30 minutes to this worthy place and u also can relax in the lawn infront of the Palace. This place is also so nice foelr photography. Enjoy and share your experience with others too. Thanks.

Jaswant Thada is located near to Mehrangarh Fort & the marble structure is a memorial built by Maharaja Sardar Singh in memory of his father.
The marble used in the construction is of very thin quality to emit light. There is a small lake beside adding to the beauty of the memorial.

This place is perfect for picture taking. Weather or not it’s for beautiful instagram pictures or view of the fort or city.
The area around is filled with nature and beautiful, but get here early - the place is packed with tourists after 12:00

A very popular landmark in Jodhpur and fondly called the ‘Taj Mahal of Marwar’ as it is made from white marble. It was built by one of the Maharaja rulers in memory of his father. There are other tombs inside and you need to take off your shoes to enter. There are several huge portraits of maharajas and other rulers going back seven hundred years. Apart from the amazing structure there are some delicate carvings and there is a serene terrace to take in the beauty of the place. This monument is surrounded by a beautiful garden and I spotted at least a couple of nicely carved gazebos.

It is a short 1 Km drive to "Jaswant Thada" from Mehrangarh Fort which has a scenic artificial lake at its entrance in which I spotted a pair of wild ducks, common Double breasted cormorants and the large Great Cormorant.A birdwatchers added attraction if visiting Jaswant Thada. Jaswant Thada" is a cenotaph built by Maharaja Sardar Singh in 1899 in memory of his father Maharaja Jaswant Singh II .It is the cremation ground for the Royal Rajput family of Marwar. The Cenotaph is built of intricately carved thin marble sheets which are highly polished and emit a glow in the bright sunshine. Jaswant Thada complex has a beautiful garden and many domes and columns and hence called the "Taj Mahal of Mewar".This ground is still used in the present era as a cremation ground for the Marwar Royal family.

A nicely constructed building with a calm and peaceful environment. An ideal place to spend some time with family where children too can enjoy. Inside the building, U can get a glimpse of of the ruling periods of all the Kings of Jodhpur along with their portraits.

Inside Jaswant Thada there are just frames of past rulers hanging. They have skipped some prominent rulers as well. No information regarding these rulers is written. Just a photo frame with their names is there. Skip this place and head towards Mandore Garden instead.

I very much enjoyed this site. Good value for foreigners at 50 rupee (rather than the usual massively inflated charge).
The workmanship is beautiful and it’s worthwhile to sit on a bench inside and soak in the atmosphere and story behind the monument.
Lovely gardens, great views.
