Where would you go to find a sister to the Taj Mahal?
The correct answer is: Around 620 km away, in Jodhpur, Rajasthan.
All dressed up in the same Makrana marble as is Shah Jahan’s monument to love in Agra is Jaswant Thada in Jodhpur, also called the ‘Taj of Marwar’. This stunning edifice, clad in dazzling white, is also a tribute to love, built by a devoted son to honour his father.
