Adhai-Din Ka-Jhonpra, Ajmer
Location: 8 kilometers east of Bikaner
Highlights: Rajput architectural style
Description
Devi Kund is located around 9 kms from Bikaner and houses the "Cenotaphs" the royal family of Bikaner.
A cenotaph is a monument erected in honor of a person or group of persons whose mortal remains are elsewhere. The cenotpahs or "Chatris" as they are called in Hindi are built in traditional Rajput architectural style. Some have been made of marble while are some of a red stone.
The Devi Kund contains a number of chattris that commemorate the great Bika rulers. The chattris are erected on the spot where the Bika rulers were cremated according to the Hindu norms. Each of the chattris reflect the grandeur of the Rajputana architecture. The chattris are white structures that are canopied with a stela. The name of the rulers are engraved on the cenotaphs.
The cenotaphs of the royal wives at Devi Kund are imprinted with the footprints bearing henna patterns. The henna patterns drawn on the footprints are reminiscent of the weddings and other festivals. Moreover, the cenotaphs of the children are white cubes that are smaller in size and do not bear the canopies.
Devi Kund near Bikaner unravels the old-world charm of Bikaner. The cenotaph of Maharajah Surat Singh is one of the most intricately designed architectural structures that catch the attention of the tourists. In fact, the cenotaph of Maharajah Surat Singh is a delight to watch. The beautiful frescoes drawn on the ceiling bear intricate detailing and miniature pictures. Besides, many other cenotaphs are adorned with royal portraits. Some of the cenotaphs are also covered with stone inscriptions that reminds us of the glory of the Bika rulers.
The Cenotaphs built for minors are called "Nada" and are simple structures without canopy. There is a small cavity on the platform in which milk and water is poured. We also saw some cenotaphs for stillborn children.
Most of the Cenotaphs are in old architectural style but a few later ones are in modern styles. One among these new ones was that of His Highness Karni Singh, the 23rd ruler of Bikaner.
