Since childhood, we have all been fascinated by the Taj Mahal. After all, this monument is a token of love from Emperor Shah Jahan to his beloved wife Mumtaz Mahal who’s grave also lies within. But do you know there is another Taj Mahal built in the fond memory of loved ones and it is situated in Blue City, Jodhpur. It is known as 'Jaswant Thada'.
Mehrangarh Fort in Jodhpur is at the top of the list of every tourist coming here, but very few know about this white gorgeous building hidden in greens right next to the Fort. Even the view of Jaswant Thada from the fort is quite mesmerizing. It's a royal Cenotaph.
Being a localite, let me share the original tales behind this Marble marvel and at the end of it, I am sure you too, will agree that this is indeed the Taj Mahal of Mewar.
