Bada Bagh, Jaisalmer

Bada Bagh also known as Bara Bagh, literally means ‘Big Garden’. It is about halfway between Jaisalmer and Lodhruva.

In the 16th century, Maharaj Jai Singh II commissioned a dam to create a lake in this harsh desert region. After his death, his son Lunkaran built a beautiful garden and a cenotaph in his memory.

Later on many more cenotaphs were constructed here by the Bhatti descendants.

      It is actually not too far from Jaisalmer Fort. We rented a scooter and made a day trip out of it. The best part is that it is not on the casual tourist trail – Hence you pretty much get to enjoy the place.
