Devi Kund Sagar, Rajasthan

Devi Kund Sagar is located in Bikaner, in the Indian state of Rajasthan. Bikaner is very famous in Rajasthan as it was the capital for the ruler of Bikaji, and the city was also named after the Bikaji dynasty. Devi Kund Sagar is a crematorium for the royal family of the Bikaji rulers. The cenotaphs present at the Devi Kund Sagar crematoriums were built for each and every member of the royal family of the Bikaji rulers who passed away during battles or due to sickness.

Devi Kund Sagar cenotaphs are built with pure white marble and red sandstone where an inscription of the remains is engraved on top of the cenotaph. The inscriptions provide the details about the ruler or the royal family member ad how they passed away. The Devi Kund Sagar crematorium was built according to the Rajputana architecture style where a slight hint of Islamic culture could be seen.

Maharaja Anup Singh was considered as one of the great rulers of the Bikaji regime (1669-1698 AD); therefore the architecture of his cenotaph is different from others and is considered as a marvellous historical monument. His cenotaph consists of 16 pillars surround the white marble. The tales of Lord Krishna are carved onto these pillars along with other animals. A similar cenotaph was also built for another great ruler, Maharaja Ratan Singh. Even though the remains of the royal family member were cremated and the ashes are not present in the cenotaphs, these cenotaphs were built to remember all the royal family members.
