Bada Bagh, Jaisalmer

Bada Bagh

A collection of Royal Cenotaphs or chhatris of Jaisalmer Maharajas, including Jai Singh II(Maharaja Sawai Singh) from Jaisalmer and Lodhruva is equidistant to Bada Bagh, literally meaning wide garden. In the 16th century, his uncle, Lankaran, made the first cenotaph in the area to Jai Singh II. Jai Singh II was renowned for the greening of the city. To honor his family, in the form of a cenotaph near the dam, he set up a monument and set up a big park around it. Many of the cenotaphs here have an elegantly sculpted ceiling and equestrian rulers statues. The location of the garden offers incredible views over the sunset.

Tourists will visit the forest, tank, and barrage during their trip to Bada Bagh. The region is dominated by Jait Bandh, the dam. The Bhaironji Temple next to Bada Bagh is often visited by unborn women and gives a god silver girdle to heal their infirmity. It’s not too far from Jaisalmer Fort, Bada Bagh; to reach the location you can hire a vehicle.

The best to visit Bada Bagh is the winter season. The months between October and March are perfect, as the heat is lower and the weather stays sunny overall. Evenings are best, as the golden rays of the setting sun reveal the stunning yellow cenotaphs.
