The cenotaph is a monument of love. It was built by Maharaja Vinay Singh, son of Maharaja Bhaktawar Singh in his father’s honour. This is also known as Moosi Rani ki Chhatri, named after one of the mistresses of Maharaja Bhaktawar Singh. Moosi Bai is said to have performed Sati by jumping into the pyre of her husband in this place only. After this incident she was given the status of a Queen. This monument is built outside the main palace. It is a two-storey building made of red sandstone. It is based on many small white marble pillars. There are also many domed pavilions on the ground floor. The Bengali styled arches and the just opposite red and white color just increases the grandeur of the beautiful monument.
