Royal Cenotaphs in Jaisalmer

Introduction of Royal Cenotaphs

Bada Bagh, also called Barabagh (Big Garden) is a garden complex which is situated about 5 kms to the north of Jaisalmer enroute Ramgarh, and halfway between Lodhruva and Jaisalmer in Rajasthan. It exhibits a collection of regal cenotaphs, or chhatris of Maharajas of Jaisalmer state, starting with Jai Singh II.

History
A successor of Maharawal Jaisal Singh, the founder of the state and Maharaja of Jaisalmer, Jai Singh II (1688 1743), specially made a dam to create a water tank in the 16th century, when he was the king. Due to this the desert of the area is Green.

His son Lunkaran built a scenic garden, nearby the lake and he also built a Cenotaph (Chhatri) on a hill close to the lake in the memory of his father after the death of his father.

Afterwards, many more cenotaphs were built at this place for Lunkaran and other Bhattis. The last Chhatri, meant for maharaja Jawahar Singh, dates back to 20th century and remains unfinished after Indian independence.

Although, the gardens are not visited by people but the cenotaphs are very interesting place and visited by people.
