Fodor's Expert Review Jaswant Thada

Jodhpur Notable Building

The royal marble crematorium was built in 1899 for Maharaja Jaswant Singh II. Capping the enormous white structure are marble canopies under which individual members of the royal family are buried. You may see people bowing before the image of the king, who is considered to have joined the ranks of the deities. A peaceful spot to stop, either on your way up to the fort or on your way down.
