Jaswant Thada is an intricately crafted cenotaph built in honour of Maharaja Jaswant Singh II, in 1899. It is a memorial, built of ornate carved sheets of white marble. The exterior of the monument emanates a warm glow when the sunlight falls on it, due to its extremely thin and polished stones. It’s a traditional cremation ground for the rulers of Jodhpur. One has to go through rocky hills to visit the Jaswant Thada. This lends a mystical feel to the whole visit. It is open to tourists from 9:00am to 5:00pm daily.
