  Jaswant Thada
by lynnehamman
 
 

Jaswant Thada, located half way up the long road that climbs onwards to the fort, is the traditional cremation ground of the rulers of Jodhpur. Taking pride of place amongst the ornamental gardens and chattris is the fabulous white marble memorial to Jaswant Singh II, built in 1899. The cenotaphs of other rulers , in the same neighborhood , are relatively simpler.

Inside the main hall are royal portraits and other possessions.
