About Jaswant Thada, Jodhpur

This Milky-white marble memorial to Maharaja Jaswant Singh II, sitting above a small lake 1km northeast of Mehrangarh, is an array of whimsical domes. It’s a welcome, peaceful spot after the hubbub of the city, and the views across to the fort and over the city are superb. Built in 1899, the cenotaph has some beautiful jalis (carved marble lattice screens) and is hung with portraits of the Rathore rulers going back to the 13th century. Look out for the memorial to a peacock that flew into a funeral pyre.  Jaswant Thada is one of the main tourist attractions to visit and should definitely feature in you Rajasthan Itinerary 2 Weeks

  • I had to give it 5 stars, beautiful funerary , with a scenic lake, and an excellent garden. Spotlessly clean and very less crowd make it a peaceful place which is rare nowadays. I would say it's more enjoyable than the fort. Entry tickets are just RS 30 per head. It's about 7 minutes walk from the Mehrangarh fort and the roads are well maintained. Go there for the sunset as it's truly spectacular with the sun setting just besides the fort. I say it's a must visit if you like monuments and gardens. There was also a sense of pride seeing how well maintained a tourist place is in my country. Well done Rajasthan Tourism .

  • Nice quiet place if you visit at the right time. Can be a bit more cleaner. The garden around is maintained very well.

  • This place is good to visit and is located very close to the Mehrangargh fort. It has the calmness and the artificial lake which adds up to the architecture beauty of the place. It would be a must visit if you already have a plan to visit the fort.

  • Way more enjoyable than the fort at a fraction of the price. The grounds are small but very scenic and the crowds aren't bad at all. The temple is beautiful and the gardens are very relaxing. Definitely try the free mediation course on offer.

  • Nice architecture.... It's a memorial for MahaRaja Jaswant singh... And also a place were last rites are performed for royal family members... Calm and peaceful place... Nicely maintained by royal family... They do have a nominal entry fees.
