We then explored Jaswant Thada, which is right next to Mehrangarh Fort. It is a cenotaph or an empty commemorative tomb. In addition to the monument, it also features spectacular gardens. The view from here of Mehrangarh Fort was spectacular. Do not forget to click a picture!
Jaswant Thada is a complimentary place just beside the fort. It is actually a cenotaph and serves as a cremation ground for the royal family. There is an attached lake and garden. One can find solace in the cold marbles of the place.
Mishrilal HotelIf you visit Jodhpur, you ought to visit this lovely eatery that serves chilled Makhania Lassi which is made from the finest quality yoghurt and is unlike any other Lassi that you may have had. The owner, Mr. Rajender Arora swears by the quality of the food he sells by emphasizing that he feeds people only what he or his family eats. It’s a family run business and has been featured on many major Travel channels and portals across the world. I loved the Rabri too and infact you should just come here and try all of their delicacies and I am sure you will not be disappointed at all.
Jaswant Thada is a monument built in memory of Maharaja Jaswant Singh. It has beautiful carvings of marble on the cenotaph.
A memorial to Maharaja Jaswant Singh II and a traditional cremation ground of Jodhpur rulers, it is an architectural landmark on the way to Mehrangarh Fort. It's built entirely of marbles, and glows when the sun rays fall on the surface. The gardens are well maintained, one can just sit back and relax.
The Jaswant Thada features white marble lattice screen and whimsical domes. The Jaswant thada is full of portraits of Ranthore fighters. It is a peaceful plcae to relax and enjoy the stunning view of the fort and the city. After a tiring day, I liked the peaceful environment and it gives you a sense of calmness and purity. It is opened from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM in the evening and the entry fees is 30 rs for the foreigners and 15 rs for Indians.
A white marble mausoleum, just a serene place to relax, very quiet and the cool breeze can put you to sleep. From here, I wiled away my time at the Umaid Palace museum and Zoo. A quick dinner(some Laal Maas) and mawa kachori at Janta sweet home was a perfect way to end the day and head to the railway station from my next destination.
