Jaswant Thada :-
The Jaswant Thada is an architectural marvel with intricate carvings.
Famed as one of the most beautiful white marble cenotaphs, it was built in
1899 by Maharaja Sardar Singh in commemoration of his father Maharaja
Jaswant Singh II. This white marble wonder of Rajasthan is often called
the Taj Mahal of Marwar. The splendid edifice is a perfect example of
Rajputana style of architecture. Its impeccable design and architecture is
symbolic of the fine craftsmanship of the bygone era.
Mandore is located about 5 miles north of Jodhpur. It was the former
capital of Maharajas of Marwar. Later it was abandoned for security
concerns regarding the Mehrangarh fort. Its extensive Mandore garden, with
high rock terrace, makes it a popular local attraction
In the Mandore garden, there are the dewals or cenotaphs of Jodhpur's
former rulers. Instead of the usual chhatri-shaped cenotaphs typical of
Rajasthan, the cenotaphs of the famous Mandore garden of Jodhpur,
Rajasthan are built along the lines of a Hindu temple. They are four
stories high, with fine columns and an elegant spire, all in red
sandstone. The most impressive dewal is the dewal of Maharaja Ajit Singh
