Tazia Tower, Jaisalmer

Tazia Tower is a five-storeyed building located close to the Badal Palace complex in the city of Jaisalmer. This monument was built by Muslim artisans and gifted to King Maharawal Berisal Singh. The architectural style of the building resembles a tazia, which basically refers to a wooden, bamboo or paper model, which originated in Karbala and is carried during the festival of Muharram.

Tazia Tower is famous for its beautiful designs, minarets and fusion style of architecture, combining elements of the Rajput and the Mughal styles. This monument is the replica of the mausoleum of Imams. Tourists can see a separate balcony on each floor which is different from the others in terms of design and architecture.
