The place with nice view of The Mehrangarh Fort and the old blue city Jodhpur and the Ummed Bhawan Palace the last palace build before independence. Also the place where you can spend the hours and make yourself relax. Total time to visit the place is around 1:30 hour. You cannot find any food stall at the place so carry food and water with you.

Jaswant thada is also called the Taj Mahal of Mewar and its no doubt that the beauty of this masterpiece is simply amazing. You cant compare this beauty to taj mahal. Its completely built of marble and on a sunny day it just glows like a gem.There is a garden and lake alongside Jaswant Thada. The place is used for royal family of Mewar as the testing grounds. The complex is well maintained. You get amazing views of Jodhpur city and one can see umaid bhawan and also Mehrangarh fort from here.Parking is available outside. Do not park on roadEntry ticket is applicable and Mehrangarh entry ticket cant be used hereDo maintain cleanliness and enjoy the place

The white marble simply catches your attention. Its very well maintained and the view of Mehrangarh fort is amazing from here. They also have some ayurvedic & organic items near the entrance. The Jaswant Thada is a cenotaph located in Jodhpur, in the Indian. It was built by Maharaja Sardar Singh of Rajasthan in 1899 in memory of his father, Maharaja Jaswant Singh and serves as the cremation ground for the royal Rajput family of Marwar.

The place is really good for families to visit , Its a small place but it has wide range of flowers and the place is very good for photography pre-wedding shoots etc. Also the place is located just below the Mehrangarh fort, so you can enjoy both places in a day.Jaswant Thada is like a cenotaph which means it serves as a cremation ground for royal Rajput family. It was made in the memory of Maharaja Jaswant Singh II by his son Maharaja Sardar Singh in 1899.

It is the memorial of the royal family members and is situated near the Mehrangarh Fort. It is a structure build using the same marbles used for constructing the Taj Mahal. It has a small garden around and was very calm and pleasant when we visited this place. A Good place for architecture and design lovers.

Its no more then just an another museum with some art of Indian Maharajas who had spent considerably large amount of money in clothing and lifestyle which I highly dont find as sensible lifestyle. Dont go there with too many hopes or otherwise you will definitely gonna depress yourselves. Its entry fees is 50 rupees and you can book tickets online on mehrangarh.getepay.in

Jaswant Thada one of the must visiting places in Jodhpur situated opposite to world famous Mehrangarh fort. Its just on Stone throw distance from Mehrangarh fort so you can go there by walking from Mehrangarh. Now coming to the Place Jaswant Thada I dont know much about this place but building is really very Beautiful. Whole building made from white marble which is attractive like Taj Mahal. I think its a palace cum temple you can go inside and explore the beautiful palace.The Jaswant Thada palace surrounded by park from three sides and a small lake adds extra charm to its beauty. If you are in Jodhpur or planning to go there then this place is a must visit along with Majestic Mehrangarh Fort.

An excellent place to visit in Jodhpur. Mainly built as a memorial for the Rawat rulers of Jodhpur, it is a magnificent sight. Apart from the memorials of the royal family there is a white marble temple which looks majestic. The Jaswant Thada is almost next to the Mehrangarh fort, and needs not more than an hour to visit. Entry fee is 30₹ each for Indians and an additional fee of 100₹ is required for a Guide, in case you need. All in all we had an awesome experience here.

These sheets are extremely thin and polished so that they emit a warm glow when illuminated by the Sun.The cenotaphs grounds feature carved gazebos, a tiered garden, and a small lake. There are three other cenotaphs in the grounds. The cenotaph of Maharaja Jaswant Singh displays portraits of the rulers and Maharajas of Jodhpur.

A good place to relax in the gardens after you are exhausted visiting the Mehrangarh Palace. Might just add some good clicks to your library. A quiet place unlike the hustle bustle you will find in the palace. Has got a garden with a mini fountain in the middle. So, you can sit there and meditate! Overall, it is a cenotaph that might give you much needed peace of mind.

A beautiful monument made in marble. I found out that the marble is laid in thin sheets instead of blocks, such that the monument glows as sunlight pass through it.The grounds are neat, and very well maintained. One can easily spend an hour here. They also have a musician stationed at the entrance who plays calming tunes through most of the day.A trip to this location can be clubbed with the one to Mehrangarh fort, preferably at noon, when the sun is the brightest.

Jaswant Thada is a striking marvellous white marble cenotaph of Maharaja Jaswant Singh II. Jaswant Thada, fondly called the “Taj Mahal of Marwar “was built by Maharaja Sardar Singh to commemorate his father Maharaja Jaswant Singh II. The main cenotaph was given a shape of the temple with intricately carved marble stone. This beautiful cenotaph surrounded by a calm lake called Devkund & mind relaxing garden with the chirping of different kind of birds. There are many temple shaped small cenotaphs proved that royal family members slept peacefully. Worth visit place & cherish your memories once again.

Nice place to visit, tickets price is 30 for temple. For the lake side visit an additional of 100 each person and 200 for guide is needed to be paid. You get a beautiful view of both temple and fort from top.

Jaswant Thada is named after Maharaja Jaswant Singh II, and it was built by his son Maharaja Sadar Singh in the year 1899.Made of pure white marble that still retains all of its allure, Jaswant Thada also consists of some paintings of the previous rulers of Mewar.Not only are the cenotaphs built of white marble, they are contrasted in red with the steps leading up to the monument, giving it a much vibrant appeal.The shallow lake lining Jaswant Thada was used for performing rituals for the deceased, and it now has a few ducks swimming about.Local musicians and folk singers sit on the steps of the monument to greet the visitors with some authentic Rajasthani melodies.

Jaswant Thada was built by Maharaja Sardar Singh and named after his father Maharaja Jaswant Singh II. It is a beautiful monument crafted with white marble sheets laid down in a manner that the monument starts glowing as sunlight passes through it. This makes the afternoon time the best to visit jaswant thada. The small lake near the monument was used by the people back in the days to perform rituals for the deceased. There are cenotaphs of the various maharajas and their family. The monument is a peaceful place with gardens surrounding it.
