Architecture of Jaswant Thada

The monument, in its whole, is built out of elaborative carved sheets of marble. These stones are very thin and polished so that they release a warm glow when the sun's rays dance across their surface.

Within this monument, there are also two more tombs. The Jaswant Thada is a traditional cremation ground of Jodhpur rulers. The grounds also comprise elegantly carved gazebos, a wonderful multi-tiered garden, and a small lake.

The Jaswant Thada of Jodhpur, Rajasthan is positioned to the left of the Mehrangarh Fort complex. It is a 19th-century royal cenotaph built in memory of Maharaja Jaswant Singh II, the 33rd Rathore ruler of Jodhpur. The son of Maharaja Jaswant Singh, Maharaja Sardar Singh, built the Jaswant Thada in the memory of his father,. However, the son was unable to follow a family tradition of ever larger and more remarkable memorials because inefficient and incapable administration of the kingdom had drained it of the financing necessary to build a more fantastic one.

The monument has two more tombs within it. Near to this are the royal crematorium and three other monuments.Famous Jaswant Thada in Jodhpur, India is an example of architectural brilliance in India.

Jaswant Thada, situated half way up the interminably long road that climbs onwards to the fort, is the traditional cremation ground of the rulers of Jodhpur taking pride of place amongst the attractive gardens and chattris. The monuments of other rulers , in the same neighbourhood , are relatively simpler to the Jaswant .
