Tazia Tower of Jaisalmer is one of the major tourist attractions. If
you have done with the various Rajputana architectures scattered in the
city, Tazia tower will come as a welcome break to you. It is situated in
the excellent 'Badal Palace' complex located near Amar Sagar Gate. These
were the homes of the former royal family. The Tazia tower is a
5-storied structure where each story has significance in its own. On
each floor there is a balcony that is famous for their individual
designs. This was built by Muslim craftsmen and is based on the shape of
Tazia. Tazia is actually the replica of Mausoleum of various Imams. They
are made of wood, thermocol and colored papers. The architects gifted it
