The Jaswant Thada is a royal memorial belonging to the Rathore clan. This is located only at a distance of half a kilometer away from the Mehrangarh Fort. The Thada was built in the year 1899 AD, as a monument. This was originally a memorial for Maharajah Jaswant Singh II by his son, Maharaja Sardar Singh.
The monument resembles a temple and has been made out of white and one can see very intricate lattice carvings on each marble. The marbles have been polished so finely that in sunlight one can see the entire surface of the building emitting a warm glow. There is an attractive collection of sculptures and frescos too. The monument is a very fine example of very architectural radiance. One can see the memorial grounds, which includes a garden which is multi-tiered along with a small pond which makes the whole place look so peaceful and calm.
One can see the portraits along with the paintings of the former rulers of Jodhpur, along with the two tombs of the royal family. Located at a distance of approximately half a kilometer from the fort of Jaswant Thada, one can see a beautiful marble cenotaph which was originally built by Sardar Singh ji.
